Hi. Does anyone know if this after market intake snorkel really does make any difference? On their website (http://www.aunger.com.au) they list our a bunch of benefits. From the picture it doesn't look any different from the standard system.

Location: Wattle Grove
NSW, Australia

More fresh air in the better, but there is only so much air needed i suppose, i looked at these and the SS inductions ones but was a cheap-skate and bought a nice big AU "wide mouth" one off ebay for $45 delivered, seems good to me add your K&N filter for$70 and your sweet!

Ride: AU III XR8 Pursuit 250 ute

Location: Hobart
TAS, Australia

The Aunger one is much much bigger than any of the stocko Ford ones. Although I noticed no difference when I fitted it to my ride (prior to the blower). The quality of it is pretty cruddy - it's thin plastic which is disappointing considering it's high price. You'll also have to cut up the opening to your air filter box larger to accommodate it.

I got an SS inductions big mouth snorkle kit and they arnt worth the money, you will probly pick up 2-3rwkw on the dyno but you will barly feel it.

I bought a BA V8 snorkel off FTG Auto Salvage (forum sponsors) and then trimmed some plastic off the top lip to open it up further. Even before modding it I noticed better throttle response and it only cost $40 + post.

thats because the snorkle itself is not much of a restriction.


if your engine was making 150rwkw on a stock snorkle with a modified EF box lid and 3inch pipe and then you changed it, you'd notice a bigger improvement

Has anyone done a dyno run with the bonnett up with and without snorkel? When i ran without the snorkel the motor just seemed to have huge lungs, it really kicked in when the bbm switched.

That's very helpful. Exactly what I wanted to know. I have some better direction on this now.

Your best bet would to go for a XR6T snorkle, cheap and its twice the size. I got one for $33.

Does it bolt on to the EL bay (6 cylinder) straight?
