Hello,
I want to replace the stock EF intake snorkle, and i went to ford, and they tell me that the AU XR8 ones are no longer available..
My question is: Do any of the BA/BF ones fit that are larger than the EF one?? or do i have to get an aftermarket one like the S+S inductions or the aunger one???

Cheers
David

you can usually find typhoon snorkles on ebay. I got mine for $40 plus $10 postage about 8 months ago.

yeah the top one, since i believe the typhoon has a bottom one as well.... I thought it was an xr8 one to begin with, until I saw under steady's bonnet on the tornado at heathchote and the snorkle is the same as the one I got off ebay.

thats a typhoon lower intake snorkle. too exxy for something you can achieve with some 4in pipe, cutting tools and glue...

BA XR6Turbo snorkel is what you're after. You need to drill 2 more holes for it, as its just shorter than the EF snorkels. I have one, and it was only $38 from Ford.
