Bigger Air Intake

AS the title suggests im after a bigger air intake for a '92 carbureted 3.9l as well as a ('95?) EL EFI... i've read a few posts and this seems to be the cheapest mod to make to a car and the only one i plan on making as there is no point spending big bucks on just a family car. Can someone point me in the direction of what sort of air intake pipe thingy i should get as well as how easy it is to fit and if anything else needs to be done...
I've heard that you can buy these parts from ford if u have a part No.? any help would be greatly appreciated

'92 NC Ghia, 302w 123.9kw at the wheels, dead stock. Peacock Green. Lots of woodgrain and velour
Tint, Mags (17x8 ROH RT's 235/45), Sunroof, Alarm/Immobliser, GM-X624 Amp, DEH-P8250 H/U, Alpine 2x6 1/4" rear, 6"splits in doors, 1" tweeters in dash.

Re: Bigger Air Intake

I'm not entirely sure what it is you're after - bigger air intake for 2 cars, one being a CFI and the other being an EL Falcon? Is that right?

Either way, this will probably be moved to the tech forums, so i'll keep my answer short - for the CFI, do the MPFI conversion first as it's just soooooooo much better (ask anyone on here who's done it), and without it, your air intake mod isnt going to make much of a noticable difference.

For the EL - I'd go a K&N/BMC panel filter in your airbox, AU or better still mandrel bent intake piping from airbox to throttle body, and a Tickford Snorkel. SS inductions is a complete waste of money (and a very big one at that) as it's basically just a bigger snorkel.
