I am after an air intake for the AU and have read a few other forums on air intakes, but now i wanna know if anyone has pics of the typhoon intake snorkels eg.secondary intake in there AU falcon etc..?I priced an intake from G&D Performance in dandenong today and its about $675 which is a lil much for an air box and filter i think.so now im just gonna have to make one.maybe not today as its rainin and i havn't got the want but yeah...hope someone has some ideas.

Honestly a pod in your airbox and an XR snorkel.... That is plenty nothing else will give an improvement i would have thought. unless u feed a CAI into the bottom of the airbox eg 3" hole with a pipe going down just behind the bumper....

There are so many expensive options out there - often the simplest and cheapest are overlooked. Dunno how many times similar questions have been asked, but anyway check out this thread: http://www.fordmods.com/ford-4l-and-6-cylinder-f1/show-us-your-air-intake-t70357.html?hilit=show%20us%20air%20intake

$675 for an airbox and filter?
Here's what I did with my intake:
Cold air intake feeding from front bumper to snorkel mouth $50
BA XR8 snorkel $40 new genuine
Pod in airbox $40 + $2 for 45deg PVC bend = $42
Airbox lower half has hole cut in front for secondary intake, covered with mesh from an old paper air filter element = free
BA 6-cyl. intake bend $25 from wreckers
3" PVC to join intake bend to airbox $3
68mm oversize throttle body, new $220
Ported intake manifold DIY = free

Net result - FAR more air (and power) than any growler, SS Inductions, Typhoon kit etc... for $380 DIY.
