Try Ferntree Gully Dismantlers, one of the sponsors, they had them at a good price for Ford members once.
You would want to get an AU XR8 Series2/3 Intake Snorkel.

The XR8/T series snorkels are physically the same size but the opening is larger.

Don't expect too much of a gain power wise, but as far as the willingness to rev is concerned, it feels better.

From Ford they should be about $30-38 or so from memory.

Yeah you probably wont feel any increase in power, maybe a little more throttle response though. On mymates old EL Futura, we noticed he got about another 50km out of a tank. So it was well worth getting one!
