yes it is but you have to drill new holes, is it a au xr8 snorkle ?? if so you will have to cut it a bit for bonnet celarance.

had to do that when i fitted a ba xr6t snorkle in my ef

no not the screws holes on the snorkle the ones on the body, but i guess you could drill new ones in the snorkle .

Yes there is . Ba xr6 turbo snorkel , u can get it from ford for $50.
But you'll need to drill 2 holes in the body and shave the top off a bit for bonnet clearance .

Probably not but it's better than stock and helps if you have a bigger cam , intake and exhaust
