cold air intake on EL

hi all

i was thinkin of puttin a cold air intake, wat i was goin to do is drill a hole at the bottem of the airbox and run a 2" plastic pipe to where the fog light sit on the bumpper, is this the best way to do it and is a 2" pipe big enough for this mod

cheers Nick

Re: cold air intake on EL

someone on another ford forum done it with a 3" pipe on an EL XR6

the only problem is if you have the ABS in your car, as the unit is basically straight under the airbox... theres just enough space to run it through

Re: cold air intake on EL

What you described can be done, but it won't make a scrap of difference to even a mildly modified engine.
Just go and grab a snorkel from an EF XR8 from Ford, they are around $40 or so.

What's that?..... Did I hear you say TQE power?

Re: cold air intake on EL

Then go a good filter and a nice intake pipe(Air box to TB)

Hold your breath, count to 10, fall apart, start again
