Use a performance filter ie Finer filter.
Minor exhaust mod's will help and look stockish.

Re: cheapest intake mods?

does the xh snorkel screw right onto the ea air box? it also looks much better than the ea banana lumped crap

Yep it fits straight onto the EA airbox, you will however need to screw it down above the radiator somewhere.

No idea, for all I know the radiators might be different.

i believe XH Utes had thermo fans, so you will have a problem there trying to use of their shrouds.

you can easily cut the original shroud. I did before i wacked thermos in. you could barely see that it had been hacked.
