yes, its a slightly bigger bore. 75mm from memory. Even better gains to be had if a better intake snorkel and highflow filter is used as well

AU throttle body is 65mm, the e-series one is 60mm. Best matched snorkle is probably an EL GT one.

i'd rather spend the extra $$$ and use the SS inductions. you really do get some real gains

Out of all the Ford CAI's the XR / GT style snorkels allowed the most volume of air through.

apparently the SS ones are good however i can think of far better things to waste $300 dollars on or whatever ridciulous amount they cost, the EL gt snorkel fits fine and is a bigger mouth, the AU XR8 snorkel will not fit straight up to an e-series and requires some minor mods to get it to fit, if you ask me, snorkels intakes etc is a much of muchness. And the TB when done with MAF and filter etc, may see you 5kw ?? maybe.. better throttle response mostly, best upgrades for e-series..
