Re: EL GT Airbox venturi

Venturi?? You mean the intake snorkel, or the bellmouth that connects to the MAF??

The AU XR8 snorkel won't fit E-series V8's without some modification, it fouls the power steering pump.

Re: EL GT Airbox venturi

The AU XR8 snorkel will not fit a E-series V8, as it won't get in there to clear the power steering pump.

Are we talking about the snorkel? The E-series V8 snorkel have a notch in the rear of the snorkel so that the p/s pulley clears it. An EL GT snorkel is a good alternative. Is this "venturi" fitted inside the MAF to TB piping? The price is similar to that of the snorkel.

Re: EL GT Airbox venturi

Is it alloy ??? Does it fit inside air box?? Its a trumpet / ventury...

If it connects to outside air box to front top of radiator then its the snorkel...
Made of black plastic...

Re: EL GT Airbox venturi

talking about the alloy 'venturi' inside the airbox as quoted by ford...

(i referred to it as a bellmouth, but they said venturi)

no picture, so i just ordered it..... i don't think they'd refer to the snorkel as a venturi.....
