You do know that the auto parts stores oh which you can purchase the filter will have the part number listings, and most likely know it of by heart anyway??

And i'm pretty sure people fit XH snork cos they are bigger?? I could be mistaken

As Pimp said, XH snorkel will fit, its a fair bit larger than the stock one and im pretty sure it fits EA-ED airboxes.

Just go to your nearest auto parts place which sells K&N filters and ask for one. You wont get much of a difference going to a high flow filter, paper element ones work just fine

Alot of people just buy the snorkel off ebay or off the forum's if anyone has it, because Ford don't stock the snorkel anymore, it's obsolete.

Therefor there won't be much around for making a XH Snorkel Replica, if you do make one, be sure to post it up on here. Good luck :)
