there wont be any huge performance gains from it, would only look a little different.....

but if u want one, go to a wrecker and get one.

im assuming the snorkel type thing is the bottom, where does it pull the air from?

doesnt look like it would go anywhere in a ef/el..

but if you could make it join upto a au111 snorkel maybe.

I thought it did hook up to the snorkel, don't the ba's have snorkels too???

Any way it's about $120 just for the pod housing. I am going to get one and just make the bracket to fit it up myself. It shouldn't be that hard. It's better than paying $500 bucks for it though. The gut old me that you have to take the bottom breather thingo off to fit it to an AU so i guess its the same for the earlier models as well. I let you guys know how it goes and i will post some pics of the finished product.
