the last one is $38 @ ford

itll give you sfa differance, if your hunting 1>3rwkw get a good panel filter, the ba xr6 snorkle, cut a hole in the front of your airbox (see thread "speed holes" or similere in the tech docs section.

For off the shelf intakes, the first one, EL GT snorkle is the best, straight swap not mods but as has bben said SFA inprovement. Contact FTG wreckers, sponser here for a good price on EL GT snorkle.

After looking at the post about cutting the air box, im going to do that as well find the best snorkel so suit it.

If the EL GT is the best then thats awsome as i know someone that works for ford :D

Ford don't have anymore, last heard that they are out of stock, but you never know your luck.

just get an el gt snorkel from ford or FTG, very cheap (compared to 230 plus bucks on other snorkels), very effective for its cost (only small percent off larger intakes), looks stock and straight swap no mods needed and if u dont have already, drop in a high-flow panel filter (k@n like everyone else).

just to say, that middle snorkel is an aftermarker aunger or however u spell it... to my knowledge if it flows better than other 2, it wont be alot or hardly noticeable..

search for cai or snorkels etc..

Well im gona go past a wreaker tomorrow and compare all the snorkles and get the best one which look's like the AU or BA type and cut the front and right hand side out and im getting a custom pipe from my trickflow intake manifold into the airbox and fit it onto the POD filter i already have.

The hole point of this exercise is to make it look standard as possible and get the rest of the car legal as possible as its kinda loud and all
