yep sure is man.you might have to swap over the rubber down the bottom but with a little persuasion you'll get it.i had to change the rubber to fit my el xr intake to the ba box...

cheers Daniel

Does the stock BA snorkel have a larger mouth than the stock EL snorkel?

Yep, wild-el's snorkel is off the EL GT - I believe still available new at a reasonable cost from Ford. It's a straight 2-minute swap on the EF-EL. I have seen EF-ELs with the AU/BA XR8/XR6T snorkel - it's about the same airflow as the EL GT - but they had to do a small amount of trimming of the left and right edges to clear the different E-series rad support shape.

My ones bangs up against the fans, not too bad but it fits good :) yea mine was a 1 min job, to make it fit had to take the airbox bolts off so it can move and shove in the new snorkle, when connected bolt up the airbox, had to drill new holes to bolt the snorkle up
