Good luck I tried to fit the one on the EF to the EB & I even Emailed SS inductions about it & they will only provide from EF upwards & I explained to them it was easy as the connection to the airbox on the EB is small as where I think either the EF airbox is bigger or SS inductions supply parts to modify the air box.

But EF onwards the air enters the air box at the bottom alf and leaves at the top half. Prior to that, EA? EB, ED, air entered top half and left at the bottom half, so the snorkel designed for EF-AU would not be compatiable! EB and ED V8's are an exception but as I think they used the last air box set up.
And yes SS Induction do supply parts to increase the opening of the air box as the snorkels exit diameter is larger than the stock ones.

I would say compare the EF/XH airbox top & bottom to see if the pipe size is the same or the EF box bigger or to heat & melt the snorkel in place.
