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?

No warning lights or codes showing we had the old air filter at the same time as in stslling the snorkel
AU Auto Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

What was the brand and model/part number of what you installed?

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 .
AU Auto Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

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