Re: EB V8 Snorkel Mod

It doesnt just fit on, Theres a few ways to make it fit. You can cut the radiator cover or cut a bit of the pipe where it fits to the airbox. You have to drill a new hole as with the EF.

Re: EB V8 Snorkel Mod

Try a ELGT intake snorkle on your EB 5.0

we put one on a mates car and fit ok with a minnor trim.

Re: EB V8 Snorkel Mod

i fitted my AU XR8/TE50 intake today
cut about 3cm of the end of the pipe then its the correct lenth
heat it up where it fowles against the powersteering pulley and reshape it
make new hole (in the actual snorkel not the radiator - leaky) and mount to existing hole in rad shroud.

at worst it will sit slightly off where it should, this can be countered by modifying how the rubber mounts on the bonet

i will try my best to get a few pics tomorrow or through the week

Re: EB V8 Snorkel Mod

that snorkel looks as though it would fit fine with the clutch fan shroud.

ive just modified my AU XR8/TE50 intake snorkel to fit properly, i couldnt get it to sit right because of the power steer pulley.
i still had it fitted though, and i think it was letting me down a bit on performance.

really feels like theres more power (i guess thats due to it actually getting more air LOL)
and because it sits correct it even looks factory now

Re: EB V8 Snorkel Mod

Re: EB V8 Snorkel Mod

The EF/EL XR8 & EL GT are all the same snorkle (part number EFTVE 9A624 A) and fit straight on the E-series V8's.

Re: EB V8 Snorkel Mod

Sounds like a better mod would be to get rid of those clutch fans :)

Question Re: EB V8 Snorkel Mod

Hi, i'm new here, wouldn't it be better to make your own snorkel from the airbox and redirect it to the front air dam? More cool air there.
