what would u guys say is the better out of those 3 for my ed gli? and wats the easiest/ cheapest way to get it?


none for your ED - they won't fit. the airbox is inverted on the EA's - ED's compared to the EF/EL/AU's - i.e. in EA's to ED's the air enters from the top of the airbox, yet on EF/EL/AU's, the air enters from the bottom of the airbox - hence you can't use the same snorkels. you would be best with the XH ute snorkel.

I don't know how people can put on a new snorkel and say they notice the difference :? Its so minimal, i got an exhaust and the bigger intake and the difference wasn't even noticable. Though i surpose we all have different ideas of what 'noticable performance increase' is. Same with fuel economy the difference would be so little or next to nothing. Not trying to offend anyone just saying :lol:

[quote="data_mine"]I've got an AU3 Tickford one. Fits the EL fine, simply drilled new holes to mount it properly.

and a comparo (AU3 installed, orig on top)[quote="data_mine"]

Yeah thats exactly the way I installed mine otherwise the Rubber strip on the Bonnet covers the air-intake hole if you use the original drill holes
:D
