Hi all,

Jst bought a Ford Falcon Ef Futura about a week ago. Love the car, drive smooth and very easy to drive. Bought the Ef as a daily to replace my wrx. I jst wanted to try and see if you guys know where i could get my hands on the BA throttle intake. The whole piping from the throttle body to the air box. I've tried heaps and heaps of wreckers but I've only found one place that has it and they want $50 for it. Wht do u guys rekon is that expensive? Oh yeah also purchased a EF XR8 snorkel for it today and already fitted it. I'm also trying to get my hands on some 75mm plastic piping and I'm having quite a bit of trouble with that as well. Any suggestions where to get it..??
I'll post some pics for you guys later.

Thanks in advance.
Btw love the forum.

Does that include the airbox? If so I doubt you will find cheaper and I would go for it.

Personally I would just get the first plastic curvy pipe that comes off the ba t/b and then use a 3in steel pipe to the ef airbox...replace the filter with a better quality one if it needs it, and get a bigger snorkel.

nah unfortunately that doesn't inclube the airbox but i'm not really looking at swapping the airbox anyway. yeah i'll prob grab it tomorrow morning. already replaced the snorkel to wht i think is the biggest bolt on for the ef. but correct me if i'm wrong. yeah don't really wanna spend too much on mandrel bent or steel pipe so that's y I would rather grab the BA throttle intake from the throttle body to airbox but I still want to modifty the outlet piping inside the airbox and tht's where the 75mm piping comes in..? Anyone knows where i could get my hands on some..

Just the mods I wanna achieve with the EF:
Great article from autospeed

awesome..thks :D
sorry to keep on asking the same question over and over but wht abt the outlet piping from the top of the EF airbox any of u guys have modified these before? is it possible to use the 80mm instead of the 75mm?? looks like a worth doing mod if I can find the piping.

Just get 3in piping and use that, you may have to modify the entry to the airbox though. Any bigger won't have an effect.

Just remember to use a bit of flex pipe somewhere between the t/b and your airbox (obvious I know lol).

sweet I'll try and get my hands on the 3inch piping if I can, tried 2d but no luck will keep looking though. don't mind modifying the box but I jst hope tht the 3inch will fit onto or into the BA throttle intake. the BA intake comes with duct which is very similar to flex pipe.. I tried using the search but for some reasons its not working for me at this stage do u guys have any more DIYs on this? thks

Had your exhaust done anywhere recently? Only reason I ask is seeing as you're only after a short piece of 3in steel (or alloy) hit up an exhaust place for offcuts/a piece. I don't see them charging much (particularly if you're a customer).
