Why do you need one and what are you expecting to gain by using one?

One of the biggest power increases I got from the Rangie was from a cold air intake. But a disco is getting it from a cooler place than what my Rangie use to, but getting it through a snorkel should still make a difference.

A CAI typically has a cone air filter, so depending on filter specs there is potential to get better air flow. But a snorkel should be just as good if not better for getting cooler air.

Neither of these two products will give you colder air. As most Rover owners know, the underbonnet temperatures are really hot, due largely to the Aluminum engine. (Aluminum being a better conductor of heat)
Taking the engine air from Outside the engine compartment is what you're after. The colder the air, the more dense it is, and the greater the O2 entering the engine. Any Snorkle (Raised Air Intake) will get you that, however some create a velocity increase in the airflow (Mantec's Snorkle top acts much like a velocity stack) All RAI manufacturers will claim free flow ability, but better than free flow is an increase in flow.
