FTG ones are just the Ford ones. There are two models to look at, either the EL GT/XR8 or AU XR8 snorkle. Both flow the same, the EL GT/XR8 one is easier to fit on E-series cars without modifications but does not come with the tickford wings like the AU one has. Either one should set you back around $30 from Ford.

Just to clarify - the AU snorkel needs to be played around with to get clearance from the power steering pump on e series. ELGT snorkel already has the provision for the clearance requried.

^ but yes - what he said!!

What you doin in the V8 forum fuzion? lol

Nah, talking about the power steering pump on the V8. 6 shouldnt be a problem, it's on the other side of the motor IIRC, but the 8 has it smack bang behind the snorkel.

Ive seen Shane (Mr landau's) AU Xr8 snorkel fitted to the NL 5.0L, he just heated it with a heat gun and reshaped the bit that fouls on the pulley.
