Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The lack of power may be due to something such as a sensor left unplugged or there may be an intake restriction now and the engine isn't able to ingest the air it needs. This may be due to installation error or the design of what you installed.

Are there any warning lights on and have you checked for fault codes?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
No warning lights or codes showing we had the old air filter at the same time as in stslling the snorkel

Can you get me the part number so I can see what you're dealing with?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Sorry i am 400 klm away from the car and wont get back till 4 pm today.
What if i pull the air filter out and drive it a short way and see if there is a deference in power at lest that will narrow it down .
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 11 months ago.

I would recommend going back to the normal configuration and see if power returns.
