Aunger do a larger snorkel, I've never seen a scoop that goes accross the radiator from them (Comodores have this type of set up).

K&N only make filters for the Falcons, they do some CAI but mainly for american cars or japanese cars that are imported into USA.

They do one for the EF falcon as they are the same as the V8. All you have to do is mark out the outlet onto the airbox, trime and screw it in. Its basically the same as an au xr8 snorkel.

Dont buy one 250 odd dollars though.

But an Au one from ford for aroun 200 bucks cheaper for something nearly identical.

yeah it's $315, probably be similar to the BA setup pic on the website under intakes. But for that money you can buy a Lukey 2.5" Cat Back Sports Exhaust or a cheap set of extractors that would be more beneficial to the engine. the stock air intake works qood, just increase the size of the bellmouth in the airbox lid.

I've seen one that goes across the top of the radiator's full length on my friends EL XR6. But the Gen3 commonwhores are the ones that you usually see it on

i was reading a magazine someone posted the link to and they did a test on air restriction on the ef/el's....by changing the filter to a k&n and gettin a bigger snorkle plus the tube they install they cut restriction by 44%.....heres a picture of where they made room for the tube to pick up from the bumper.....great idea im gonna give it a go
