Can anyone advise if the EL air inlet duct assembly for the 6 cyl. engine (the one mounted over the engine rocker cover) can be fitted to my EF 6 cyl.?
The EF utilises a rather large and bulky dual inlet duct which is joined by 2 flexible hoses to another inlet duct which then connects to the air filter assy.
I have the original one on my EF 6 cyl. which is split and cracked (due to a backfire on Gas, which was due to a poor resistive spark plug lead)
I have been told to fit the EL air intake assembly instead, (which is smaller and less prone to damage if a backfire occurs) but wondered if this would affect performance etc. as the car is obviously not tuned to the EL one.
The El piping from the airbox lid to the TB flows better than the Ef.This is due to irregular pressures
from single pipe into dual pipe back to single.
But the Ef airbox lid does flows better than the El lid.
If I were you just throw on an El lid and pipe work.
