A mate is chasing power in his EL manual. But is on P's so turbo is out of the question.

Now my main question is intake side of things. I heard if you use BA intake pipe (being 3" all the way), BA airbox (with slight massaging of the inner guard) and a GT? Snorkel with a K&N you get noticeable gains.

Couldn't remember exactly. Correct me if i'm wrong. Also i don't wanna hear "get suchasuch brand CAI, It's awesome"

so 3" pipe from where the elbow that goes into the TB ends to the airbox? would prefer a panel filter

3" mandrel bend from the Ford elbow to the EL box (with a EF lid, as they have less fins and are less restrictive) with a K&N should be a nice addition.

Nah i used the whole ba intake , plastic elbow and flex hose . It's in my build thread. Because it won't reach the el airbox you need a short piece of pipe. If your going panel filter it will be easy to set up . Grab a ef airbox lid as 3" pipe fits in it perfect .

They do have a 3" inlet aswell as ef airbox lid . Or you can undo the 4 bolts and swap the square thing onto a el lid. To fit a ba airbox I think you have to hammer out the guard ..

go 3" piping from throttle body to airbox, the BA piece is no way near 3" through the middle section and would be more restricting.
