Hi, I was wondering if anyone could tell me what and where I could get a cold air intake system installed and what would be the best type?

I assume for the BA? There is a SS induction system, maybe look at some builds in the garage to see what other BA's have done !

wouldnt even bother with a ss induction system, waste of time or money, either put a good panal filter, like a k and n filter in the standerd air box, or get a stainless 3 inch cold air intake made up to go into your air box sealed up,

this is mine atm

On a BA XL id be using a BA/BF XR6T snorkel, they are a fair bit larger than stock BA items and will get a bit more flow into the airbox.

Id also find and fit a F6 Typhoon secondary intake snorkel which takes in air from behind the headlight, seems to be a very popular intake mod amongst the b-series guys. Will require you to mod the front of the lower part of the aibox to fit but thats no biggie.

You could however make up a DIY secondary intake similar to the typhoon one, from memory, FordFreak EF made one up using 2 EA Falcon CFI intake tubes - worked to the same affect for a fraction of the cost.

got any proof ? pyss off you w4nker.. you can't even post a link to the website so you don't seem like an official salesman, are you just trying to get other people to buy one so you don't feel so bad ?

"Best Mod for your Ford Falcon AU,BA, BF,FG" << where are the mods to delete posts with ludacris unsubstantiated claims of power products?
