lol... sorry to hear that.. still pretty funny.

It has been discussed on here before that they are definately not worth the money, and that the same/similar could be achieved using an AU XR series III snorkel and a K&N filter or similar. and ontop of that add a mandrel bent intake tubing.... that should be about $300? and would be alot better...

Sorry to hear that again mate...


Cheers

I got an SS Snorkal, i'm getting slightly better economy & more power. More noticable at high speeds. It's close to double the size of the Tickford Snorkal.

I got mine for $250. For power for your dollar its not so good. But as my insurance aren't to keen on performance, I wanna do all the little stuff even if it costs big $$ just to get a little bit more out of the engine.

they are not worth the money. but that doesn't mean they don't work

$3 or $4 a week if so it'll pay it self of in about a year and half

I have one and it flows the best of course but yes, very expensive. Get the GT snorkel for $40 instead and put a high flow air filter in as well. You'll feel the difference after that.

Actually no, sometimes i'm breaking 600 kms from a tank. So it'll pay itself off much quicker than a year and half.

Once you'll start really modifying your engine, she'll want more air and the ELGT snorkle is only good for so much...

i do actually have a k&n filter which i put in before changing intake. economy has increased a fair bit, the average on my trip computer was 15.3 but it quickly dropped to 15.0, but that wasn't the real reason i bought it


sorry i have had a few cans

Reading this, I'm seriously considering chucking on a ELGT intake... (1/2 way there with the BMC panel in already)

Oooh, and maybe a ss throttle body too... hehehe One day! :roll:

I suppose for 40 bucks, the ELGT intake cant be that bad, since it's actually on the "top of the line" GT... :roll:
