samuel u live near a ford factory. just go to Bayford in Epping and ask for an AU XR8 snorkel i think they go for 50 bux or something. Im not sure if there still is a spare parts joint near the ford factory but u can always check. i know for sure that the epping sells them....if they dont have them in stock u can wait 5 mins they'll go to the factory and get some more.

phong =P~

Hey buddy, i got a ford TS50 snorkel from ford i got it cost price and it was like $30. retail wouldnt be much more. I'm not sure if it i too much bigger than the XR8 one but the TS50 one has a tickford emblem on it. and it nearly bolts straight up. ya just have to drill a couple holes further back from the originals. It breathes a little better but not sure of the power gains.

i think the TS50 are the same as the XR8s and they should fit cause i dont think there is anything to restrict the width of the mouth? but yeah should fit......if samuel wont take it ill take it off u Nash_QCKSIX :wink:

The XR8 and the TE50 1 will fit easily into an EF or EL and in2 EA,B,D with a little modifying.

From what I hear ford no longer makes them but its only a recent thing and if you hurry your a** up you should still be able to get 1

I paid $30 for an AU3 XR8 snorkel from ford in Melton about 2 weeks ago.

i reckon there would be plenty of tickford snorkels around.
the AU XR8-T series are all the same. They basically fit with new holes in the rad support. otherwise the ELXR8,GT, etc are around the same size but you dont get the Tickford logo on them.
