EF Fairmont cold air induction

Here's some induction mods for EF/EL fairmont 6cyl owners. Make that dummy grill useful. 1st remove it from the bonet.In the left hand corner cut a small D shaped hole through the bonet this allows air to flow straight up and into the air intake tube.Now on the EF remove the plastic centre by undoing the screw in the centre and popping a few clips.Grab yourself some alloy mesh cut to shape the screw in the middle will hold it in place then slap it back on. Now remove the air intake tube and replace it with a series II XR8 AU intake tube Pt no:TAUTVE9A624A trade price $25.15 from ford. To fit it youl need to heat the last bend with a heat gun while still hot put it on with a small amount of presure pull it to the front of the car fit the screw closest to the lock.Drill a 1/8 hole in the other side and fit a self tapping screw.Now take the top of your air filter box off and remove it from the car.Turn it upside down on a bench. Inside the top youl see a trumpet shaped rubber tube with ridges on it mark the last 1/4 with a white marker then undow the small bolts on the out side and withdraw it. Were youv marked it cut down the first ridge only half way then stand it on its end cut down each side remove that 1/4 section. Befor reinstalling get your self a piece of 2in foam trim to fit inside the top under the tube now refit the tube. Reasemble air box. Disconect the battery for 5 min as now your air flow has increesed you need to reset your ECU You will notice the first few times you start your car the idle will go high and then low dont pahic it soon sorts itself out. You will notice a diferance in throtel responce and exselaration.

Re: EF Fairmont cold air induction

yes pics would be great

This would work well on an EL fairmont as you could remove the black backing plastic yet leave the grey horosontal bars

Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.

Ill take it as a complement i think.............

Re: EF Fairmont cold air induction

See if i can borrow my brothers digi camera and take some shots.And your right about the EL grill. One other thing i forgot to mention dice the paper air filter and go for a KnN or simler. If you want to see a nice BA XR8 cheek out www.shaker.com.au

Re: EF Fairmont cold air induction

Looks pretty good, still not too sure about cutting a hole in the bonnet. Did you use an angle grinder to cut the grill out and the back of it?
