First off you should have just searched this topic as thier are HEAPS of threads on this lol. But ne way, im guessing your getting the AU III Tickford intake. Good choice should cost ne where between $30-$40. Follow the instructions given to you on Fordmods and you will be lovin it.

As for the filter i would reccommend just gettin the hi-flow panel fitler :)

Charades can be worked quite easily and are very light so make a good sleeper. I wouldnt worry too much.
As for the snorkel I would get an ELGT one over the AU3XR8 one because its a direct swap. The AU3 XR8 one touches the thermo fan housings and can be a pain in the a** to line up the screw holes. The ELGT one is a direct replacement that fits perfectly.

hey i replaced mine on thursday only cost me $22 but yeah noticed it heaps. I also just drilled 2 new screw holes to much or a pain to line it up with the others. and a panel filter is the best way to go just because its so much easier to put in.

They would be the same. The difference is nothing you can see or feel. Get the ELGT one. Much better fit with the same airflow.

i dont think it really matters which one you get...i got the au3xr8 snorkel and i just trimmed it down on the lip and drilled 2 little holes just abouve the radiator (be careful doing this) and then put it on...but if the el gt one just fits on and has the same airflow i dont see why you wouldnt go for that one.
