Im pretty sure i read somewhere that the ED snorkel was a tad bigger or something than the EA one but not 100% sure on that as i thought they were the same size. The only snorkel i know of that will fit and is an upgrade over both of them is the XH snorkel, its a fair bit bigger than the EA-ED items.

at our kadina ford the xh snorkel is about 75.00 and theres none 2ndhand would it be better to make a homemade standard snorkel for the ed using sheet metal and use soldering fluid and solder to solder the sheets together to put the snorkel together

i guess u could make it out of metal, would be a bit of work though, and looks???
ive been thinking of making 1 for my brother inlaws ed gli/fairmont out of fibreglass, xh style and enlarging the opening a bit more than that.

the xh snorkels are on here from time to time, why not get onto 1 of them. reckon they were about $35 from ford last year

Or i have a XH snorkel for sale you can have for 30 bucks plus postage PM Me.

The EA tubing is larger from manifold to airbox then EB/ED the EB/ED snorkel has better flow then EA but XH has almost the same flow as EF/EL standard i beleive
