As for snorkels, as far as the rake angle and length goes, I would bet that a snorkel made for an 80 series landcruiser would fit, assuming the air box is on the same side (I'm not familiar with the Pilot's engine layout). They are known to fit the RD1 CRV and the lines are very similar, as previously mentioned. Probably much cheaper than trying to make one.

I am looking at various options for adding a snorkel. At this point I am most interested in the cold air intake aspect of the mod. I don't plan to take my pilot in crazy deep water. A while back I did research and verify that the rear diff has breather tubes run into the cabin.

I thought about disconnecting my front sway bar. As for the snorkel you may be able to retrofit one off a Jeep Cherokee. That’s what I did and was able to shape it into position with a heat gun. I did actually gain a few MPG’s too with it. Same as you, my Outlander has never been in deep water. It was more for fresher air factor. I picked mine up off amazon for about 80$

nice project. I have never know that Pilot has 4wd system I though it's Honda SH-AWD system .
My 2007 Pilot has Honda’s VTM-4 system in it. Like SH-AWD It has the benefit of being awd while still allowing you to lock the rear axles. It is always on and there when you need it (rain, snow, gravel, etc). If you look at my pictures you can see the 4WD badge. I have been very impressed with the system!

Here is an informative article that I found describing how the VTM-4 system operates.
