It should fit, i had no drama's at al on the V8 which is basically the same air intake setup.
If you intend to run a Snorkel, you might need to cut a 80-90mm hole in the siode of the pod cover to run it into. If you get what I mean...

They look better and have a different air filter. They may be a tad bigger.

The BA ones are a cone setup around the filter. So the filter sits in the cone, like our EF/EL flat panels do, but the BA XR8's are already a pod filter stock.
Unless your thinking of the stocko flat panel one for the 6's?
Cause i couldn't really see a great advantage of that.
