It looks to be the Xr6T snorkel... and ive upgraded on my BA. So if your running stock snorkel, and you can make it fit, then i say go for it!

ask your ford dealer for an XR6T snorkel. should cost less than 40, which is what the ebay item looks to be.

i think you'll find they are identical except some au ones (t series) had the tickford wings embossed on top.

readily available from any dealer just about anywhere

obviously been a while since you guys saw a factory ef snorkel.

its an au3 xr8/ba xr6t style one. there is no shonkiness going on except with the benefits in the description.
