Gains are NOT huge, but it does help the engine breathe alot better. I got a K&N filter then the AUIII XR8 ticky snorkle and i noticed throttle response had improved greatly! :)

But thats it, i mean induction noise was louder but with the hood down you cant hear it ne way.

For $30-$40 its worth getting. Well that my opinion ne way.

i have induction noise, didnt b4, i can hear it sucking from the drivers seat, sounds cool


its not a great deal diff, little bit more responsive

its up to u whether u put the k&n in, i did, i think it made a difference especially in fuel economy i easily get 800kms on high and around 600km around town

i noticed a great improvement with throttle response. i also put in the K&N panel filter which also helped a bit. but for 30-40 bucks its well worth it. theres a fair difference in throat diameter between standard ef and the au2 snorkel. i dont see why some people pay over 100 bucks for the other ones like SS inductions one when its pretty much the same

The $300 bigmouth from SS Inductions is a waste of money for the EF\EL Falcon. Get urself a AUII\AUIII XR8 Air Intake Snorkel... bought mine for $33 from Jarvis Ford.

Any new Ford Dealer can get them in, within a few hours. Costs between $25 - $35.

Takes 3 mins to install.

There is a noticeable increase in throttle response, a slight raise in performance, and a nice (but soft) "sucking" induction sound.

This cheap mod = Big :D

You could also buy the EL GT snorkel which is similar size and fits to the original mounting screws. $45 from Ford.

is there any size difference between the EL GT snorkel and the AU2 xr8 one?

i mean, if they are same size and give same flow, would the EL GT one be better as it fits in the origional mounting holes?

Don't know about Power increase, but my mate said he gets a bit more fuel economy out of it. So its noticable, definately get one.

It's also a good mod that works in harmony with other mods, like exhaust/extractors/cam/headwork - i.e. anything that'll benefit from more air.
