The one you might be thinking of was what i did to my car. i have a ED XR6 and put the larger XH ute snorkel on it. it cost me about $22 for ford and took about 20mins to fit

here is a pic.

Hey EDXR6, have you taken a look at how small the opening is at the airbox end of the airbox-throttle body rubber duct? (ie. take out the air filter and have a look down the hole). In your photo there you can actually see the narrowing of it even from the outside.

Yeah ive noticed this, that opening would be lucky to be half the size of the throttle body. Ive been thinking of the best way to 'fix' this and so far ive come up with 2 possible solutions.

Mount a second pipe from the airbox and route it into the main flex pipe (problem is sealing it properly from dirt entering etc)

Or finding a different airbox and run the full width flex pipe into it.

Yeah well you might suffer a little at WOT, but in reality how long do you have your foot on the boards???

You end up with "your foot on the boards" a reasonable amount of time in a six actually - especially if it's auto - other wise you're just not trying!! :s6:
