Yes i already knew only au had the tickford wing, I was confused by ur post. I read it that u were disagreeing but then finished by saying they are the same snorkel but one has wings and one hasn't, the op was asking any difference between xr8 snorkel and xr6t I'm asumming he ment Au which he did :) so I answered him

Just cause this topic was brought up,

What snorkels will fit an EL, was told au xr8 snorkel but the guy from ford told me there was 2 (one of which had a higher stock kw).

Also saw it needs a bit of a modification to sit snugly, any comments on this.

Thanks for your help fellas.

Have seen pics of an AU XR8 snorkel in an EF/EL. From memory, it had the sides of the mounting tab slightly trimmed (maybe 2cm square) to fit the EF/EL rad support. Didn't look like a major.

You go and buy a BA 9A624 A new from your local Ford dealer and it costs $45.70.
This is the same CFM as the V8 Tickford one sans the wings.
Ford superceeded the tickford one to the XRT BA about 8 years ago.

The BA 9A624 snorkel Papa Smurf mentioned just bolts straight in - literally a 2-minute job - and it's much bigger (see fordmods-technical-documents-diy-f38/convert-au-to-low-restriction-ba-induction-tube-part-1-t100117.html).

Just read through that write up, it's extremely handy... Definitely think this will be my next modification. Very much liking the idea of keeping it vaguely factory, and neat... Thanks...
