im looking at this for my EL. it looks like it has a fair bit bigger inlet mouth on it and just look for opinions from more experienced people. do you reckon it would be worth the money??

any opinions appreciated. thanks.

Well if you want better acceleration without anything being restrictive, you could go buy an EF top half of the airbox and the EF intake to the throttle body as they allow more of a free flow from the airbox and the EF intake and the Big Mouth will make a good difference

Its an XR6 Turbo snorkle, good cheap upgrade for your EL. You may notice better response with the throttle

ahh thanks.

my intentions at this present time is to purchase the snorkel and iv been ringing around to find a good price on an EF box top and intake piping. will this extra setup make a noticeable difference? also, would it make a different noise from the bonnet?

you would be alot better off getting a BA intake pipe or a custom made one than a EF intake, you wont notice any difference from EF to EL

instead of getting that off ebay you could go down to your local ford dealer and ask for a ba xr6 turbo snorkle theyre around $47, there the same as a auIII xr8 snorkle but with no ticky wings.
it would save you stuffing around with bidding and postage and youd save a couple of dollars

I would suggest get the snorkal from ford....

have you got any 75mm stormwater pipe handy???

Problem with the EF/EL airbox is the have this nice restrictive 55mm entry point on the airbox, with a bit of material removing it can be throuted out to accept the 75mm stormwater pipe.... It is important to add a bellmouth to the plastic pipe as this aids flow....

End result is this...

Image

It takes a little work but its a cheap mod that does work very well....

Fitting a BA intake as part of the overall package helps all round as in this pic of my old car....

If you really want to inprove the amount of air flow to the intake you could try build your own shaker style setup. I get mine back sometime this week. The air is feed into the air box with a toyota bonnet scoop threw a standard sized filter and then into the throttle body. The air only travels 6 inches from the out side of the car to the throttle so should stay really cool.

what do u mean by 75mm, because the inside diametre of the ba flex pipe is not 75mm its 83mm, and the hole in the air box is 80mm in ef . so when everyone is saying they are using 75mm down pioe they are wrong cos there is no way 75mm drain pipe is going in the ba pipe its too small. every doco ive read on the ba intake in el/ef/au everyone has said they have used 75mm down pipe which is the distance the pipe is from the airbox. no one has actually said what diametre pipe they used

mine used 75mm diameter pipe... as you can see it fits....

If you open up an EF airbox you will see its not 80mm inside it either... it goes down to 55mm as well

I have 76mm pipe and the hose clamp just crushes the flex pipe and won't seal on the pipe, I'll have to find some 80mm pipe

I know changing the intake won't give you 20rwkw but I like the look of the BA intake , the Ef intake is ugly
