Hey guys.
I have a Ba Mk2 xr6 n/a and Im wanting to find ways to increase the power of it without fitting a turbo or anything.

I heard that getting ahold of a big mouth air induction snorkel or a xr6T snorkel and swaping it with my stock snorkel would incease my power and all round performace. Would this actually work??

If so, does anyone know the best place I can get my hands on one?

Thanks in advance.

Yes minimal gains can be had by a xr6t upper intake snorkel and even a f6 typhoon lower snorkel.
xr6t snorkel is direct fit but the f6 lower intake needs a hole cut out of the airbox. if you get both it shouldnt cost much more than about $120

Yep, the XR6T snorkel is a pretty cheap and popular intake upgrade for the BA/BF NA 6's. The XR6T snorkel has a bigger opening and throat so it should allow more air into the airbox. Look into fitting a typhoon style 'behind the headlight' intake as well, it apparently works well with BA/BF's.

Best place to get one would probably be Ford to be honest. Pretty sure the XR6T snorkel's are only like $40 through Ford spare parts from memory. PapaSmurf on these forums will be able to confirm :)

Intake mods will not really improve anything until you fit extractors and a sports exhaust.. So do not expect gains except for a louder induction roar../.

Our sponsor-F T G has the equipment you require. I know, I fitted an F6 lower box and wide mouth top intake that goes with it, to my BA MK1, and I believe it has made it peppier, and yes it makes a roaring sound under heavy acceleration. Overall,extremely happy!

typhoon set up (lower duct and upper larger snorkel) with K&N filter, is the best set up.
ive had and tried in this order
-stock
-xr6t
-typhoon with and with out K&N
-pod filter
-SS growler
the growler gave me no performance increment over the typhoon, however s**t i was loud. it was louder then my exhaust, but i didn't like the note of the sound, the exhaust sounded so much better so it had to go :lol:

Thanks for the advice winman. How did it go with just the xr6t snorkel?
