On the garage page that lists all of the threads, down the bottom there is a box that allows you to change how many days your Ford forums will read. If you set it to 100 days and click the go button, you will see a greater amount of threads.

This subject has been covered a few times and the general consensus is to save your cash and order the EL GT snorkal, costs all of 25 bucks and is far bigger than the standard one.

hope it helps

Yeah i looked at the SS coldair inductions, the kit for falcons costs like $320 for abit of plastic and they claim 8kw at the rear wheels.
I think the figures are abit how you going and the price fuggin rip off.

GT Intake Scoop is only $36.00.

Question

I have an EL Fairmont V8. What is involved in fitting the EL GT intake snorkle? Will it just bolt straight on?

Yeap it should fit, just un bolt the two screws of the air intake tube and it will come off.

Cold Air Intakes

I'm looking at investigating the effectiveness of "Cold-air" intakes for my final year thesis this year. The project car we'll be working on will be my mate's EL XR6. We're looking at measuring a whole bunch of things like mass air flow, intake temp, etc. as well as the effect on RWHP. We're also looking at using a few different setups with piping, filters etc. to determine whether you can make significant gains.
It will be a while yet till we get results but I'll keep you posted - might be interesting.......

Thats a good project your doing there, i'd be very interested to see your findings once you've concluded your thesis.
