EL Snorkels

Is there any differance between the snorkels Ford fitted to the airboxes of the EL V8 Fairmont and EL XR8 or are they the same? If the XR one is better I'll fit one to my car. Can an AU one be fitted if its a better option?

Thanks

Interesting read eb2flyz, thanks, but the article gives me mostly info about the airboxes. Looks like I've got the good one there at least :)

I believe the non-tickford V8's just had the standard snorkle, might want to remove it and check for a product code, the tickford ones are EFTVE 9A624 A. AU ones cannot be fitted without modification to clear the power steering pulley.

Re: EL Snorkels

the mod isnt hard, heat it up over the stove and push it in slightly.

i thought they fitted on EF/EL, just not EB - ED..... have been known to be wrong before though....
