Intake Snorkels for 5.0

G'day fellas

I've been meaning to change my stock intake snorkel for a while now, but i'm yet to have a definative answer as to which one to buy. i am aware some have an issue with EB-ED v8 power steering pump clearance. can people list what they have and any modifications they had to perform.

cheers.

Re: Intake Snorkels for 5.0

Do a search, this topic has definately come up before. I recall someone saying that an XR8 snorkel or an EB/EL GT snorkel was the best to go for. Good luck!

Re: Intake Snorkels for 5.0

If you want a straight bolt on then the EL XR8 snorkle fits straight on and flows as much as the AU ones, but does not have the tickford wings. If you want to fit the AU snorkle you have to heat up the back (where it hits the PS pulley and bend it in.

Re: Intake Snorkels for 5.0

I've got an AU one in my ED. All I did was bend the rubber strip under the bonnet and put another hole in the flange to screw it down. As for clearance on the power steering pulley, I've got about 5-8mm clearance and I can vouch that it has never touched once. Give it a go, you cant whinge about the price - $30 genuine.

Re: Intake Snorkels for 5.0

well unlike most people, i dont want a tickford badge! would look a bit odd on the ltd. so the EL XR8 snorkel sounds like the go.. anyone got a part number handy?

It's the same on EF-EL. I got the AU XR8 snorkel and couldn't fit it properly. Had to heat it over the stove and mould it into place. I didn't do a good job and it was still fouling on the pulley. I've been looking at the SS Inductions snorkel, but haven't heard from anyone that has one and at $300 I'm not willing to take a punt on it...
