Off the monifold? The throttle body you mean? That was native on my car, is a EL intake.

That connects to the 180degree pipe i cut into two $25

Then that flexitube was native i think as well for the EL intake,

Straight pipe $25

Silicon tubing, f**k me $50 i think


yeah oops throttle body haha
yeah i might have to get a silicon tube that comes off that and then do the rest like you said
sounds pretty easy but those friggin tubes are expensive ... i was looking at some today when i was seeing if i could get an adaptor for the pod filter but they didnt have any :/ so i just put it on the stock pipe it fits nice and tight though haha

Basically i spent $100 i think on parts for it.

180 degree tube i cut in two, Silicon tube also i cut up and didnt use some bits of what i bought at all. I spent too much :(

As mentioned, rocker cover/bonnet clearance was a issue with me, also some others experienced this as well yet some can fit it just.

Have a good read of the thread, see what parts you have and what you can use and go from there.

Also get a newer snorkle, an AU V8 snorkle
One for sale here
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/FORD-FALCON- ... 3f0e5ef05f

or better condition one here
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/FORD-EF-EL-A ... 519b0eec00

With all air intakes you have to remember something as well, if you do a great intake, best to also do exhaust and extractors as well.


what would i do about the clearence if im having trouble with it??
and im not gonna worry bout a snorkel just yet as the pod filter isnt in a box its just off the pipe
and im also looking at getting some extractors but dont know what woulb be decent ones and at a decent price? plus what size are the intake pipes? arent they like 3" or something

While you have your intake off, get some High temp paint and primer and give that rocker cover a nice coat of red or something! =) liven up that engine bay!

Difillipo and Jim Mock Motorsport do premade 3" intake pipes from the BBM to the airbox.
They are both around the same price, at about $350.

difilippo intake is actually $440 inc GST, they are 3’’ ceramic coated inside and out side. directly from an email i got back from them last week.

JMM Ultra-Flow Intake Kit, 3" Mandrel, Coated, incl filter, etc is $390.

Might as well buy the bends on ebay and get a mate who knows how to tig to do it. will cost you roughly 100-150 to do in stainless, or get an exhaust shop to do it.

I got quoted "a couple hundred bucks" from an exhaust shop to do mine in stainless from the bbm to air box
