Hey all!
I'd like some opinions on what I should replace the stock intake snorkel with...
In the mods section it shows a Tickford AU XR8 Intake which is simple enough and only $38.
Then I remembered that its not my EA and I COULD get an SS Inductions cold air intake, Which one would give a more noticeable difference?
Also does anyone know how much an SS Inductions cold air intake is ?

Any help or ideas would be appreciated :)

SS Induction kits are about $250 (thats what I got quoted). I just ordered an AUXR8 snorkel from FTG for $42, so its teh better option for me.

your money could be better spent, thats for sure.

ive heard a lot of people say its not worth it, it is bigger but the au xr8/EL GT snorkel is all the 6cyl needs

Surely this 'SS vs Ticford' Induction debate should be a sticky
