Hey all,
I'm currently in the process of getting an EF xr8 and would like to know what parts and what is involved in changing to the gt intake setup.
Cheers

If you get one from an actual EB or EL GT it'll bolt straight on. Good luck finding one though.
AU/Explorer intake will be easier to find.
If you can't find one of them you can get a new Cobra intake from Ford racing for about U.S.$370.
The GT40 upper is no longer produced and the reason is twofold; it's fabricated and therefore expensive to make and second it doesn't actually make any more power than a Cobra or Explorer upper. In fact I would have an Explorer upper over the rest.
