Re: au inlet on ebxr8

It depends on how you define worthwhile. It will improve power etc, but other bits (heads / exhaust etc) will still be pretty limiting. Unless you plan on going aftermarket heads, I don't know that I'd bother with the extra expense of an aftermarket intake.

The AU's will need to be altered slightly for the EB - check the Windsor mechanical section (or search it), there is a heap of information in there about intakes and other mods.

In that case yes AU inlet, Maf as well!!! Hope you have good springs with that 2031 even the Tickford tappered springs will break, which is very bad news...With roller cams the ramps are very sharp and is hard on anything thats not up to it...

Re: au inlet on ebxr8

That intake is the most restrictive part of the stock setup. All your other hardware is going to waste until you change it. If you're keeping the E7's the AU intake would be perfect, if you're upgrading to alloys an aftermarket one would be better. Also as ebxr8240 said, MAF!!!!
