I was told they are the same as the AU tickford snorkels so I guess it would fit. You might need to drill 2 holes for the screws though...but that is an easy task.

ba xr6t snorkel is 100% identical to the au tickford one (whatever it is with the tickford wings)

my mate sold the tickford one on ebay last week for $106 and i bought my xr6t one brand new from FTG for $40... might be able to get cheaper at other places etc...

but the snorkel is 100% identical except 1 has tickford wings moulded on it one doesnt.

You would get better response. A little can go a long way. If you have a better filter and a custom intake, you might just feel the difference.

Old thread, but I have a BA intake snorkel and it fouls on the thermo fans, is there any other options other than butchering a set of fans?
