got this off the ftg website. just wondering if it is a genuine ford part or just a copy. it says on the ebay link http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... 0375505804 that they have them available, not sure whether that is for that item or that they have the real deal at a higher price. thanks :D

yeh thats what i was thinking but because it says it was new and unused and i couldnt see any tickford stamp on it or anything i was wondering about its authenticity. not having a go at them or anythingm they are cool, just curious. whats involved with the small modification needed to fit it? just take to the airbox a little so it fits?

If FTG say its real, i would believe Darren. If you get it and find its not, I know he would answer your queries and replace it if still not 100% satisfied.

yeh thats what i mean, i know they arnt s**t. i just want to get a bit more airflow and have seen here that the au xr8 snorkel seems to be the way to go, but anything bigger than the standard el one has got to be better ay.

All the ford stampng is on the underside, if your talking about the tick wings on the top, they were only on au xr8s.
the modification is trim along the front about 5mm off so it sits properly on the rad support, frankly I did it with a pair of scissors, beyond simple.

Only the large snorkels from the AUs had the Tickford stamped on it. BA onwards didn't.

If you get the BA snorkel, you will need to cut 2 fins on thermofans and also drill 2 mounting holes into the radiator support. The holes on the BA snorkel don't line up with the EF/EL ones.

Pretty simple.

BA don't have the Tickford wing due to the fact that Tickford ended with the AU. If you are after an AU XR8 with Wings you will pay alot more than $40.00.

Ford superseded the TICKFORD wing type by the BA one you saw advertised, they are the SAME CFM and are just minus the wings.
