Thought I'd take some time to give the EL some love today and fit the AUIII XR8 intake snorkel. Guy at the local Ford spares says they are no longer available.

Can anyone point me to someone who still sells them?

BA/BF snorkles are the same as the AU XR8 without the Ticky Symbol.

Also probably find the B series ones will be easier to get hold of and have the same mouth size.

If fitting to the EL. you will need to drill a new hole for one of the screws. Just be careful you don't got through the radiator like someone I know. :shock:

Or fit a small piece off plastic tube cut to length so only 2-3 mm of drill tip sticks out.
