tim,

you could put a snorkel of an EB GT on it :s5 ,The 6 & 8 cyls use the same airbox.

I think that they are around the $100 mark, PARTSGUY would probably know the exact price and partnumber being the legend that he is:s3 :s3

The Pre EF 6 cyl Falcons suck filtered air from the bottom of the airbox. All V8 and post ED 6cyl Falcons suck filtered air from the top.
So the EB GT scoop wont work unless you like to have your engine sucking unfiltered air :oo1: :dead:

Ive had a good poke around for cold air ideas on my car too and I reckon a fair bit of cold air would travel though/around the circular headlights. So im going to install some piping at the front of the airbox and route it to right behind the headlights, for even more cold air you could even remove the highbeam light :s6:

If I get off my ass I might do it tomorrow and ill post some pics.

There is a photo guide on how to install a cold air induction setup on the Tickford owners club of NSW website. In the Tech Pages, under cold air.

Not sure if it will work for a pre ef 6 (havent really looked at a 6 in a long time)

The only thing I can come up with 'genuine' is perhaps the XH air intake.....much bigger than the EB/ED one. Just haven't tried one out yet, not sure if it will line up cleanly with the top lock panel. Would definately have to modify the fan shroud.

Retail price with GST is about $31.00
Part Number is EHC 9C675 A

I modded the intake on my XG ute (similar setup) by taking the air cleaner off completely, and replacing the original intake tube (clean air) with the convoluted tube off a EL-AU clean air duct, then mounted a Finer filter cleaner on the end behind the headlights, went a s**tload better, and sounded quite nice too.

Cant remember part numbers but its part of AU9C684A.

Wulos, do you just have the pod installed or do you have some ducting going under the guard??

doesnt matter

Ram Air / Cold Air Induction is simple

You dont need to waste bullshit amounts of money, or get bullshit parts from ford or buy certain things .

You do a need job, if you want show quality thats up to you, but it sits under the car, where no one sees.

Simple;- Rules are, the less bends/turns in the pipe/hosing, makes the air flow better, long as you have it in a good spot, you can use any hosing, from pvc piping to proper air hosing which is like $15 for like half a metre or metre or so.

You dont have to make it fancy, as long as the air has a nice run and not to many bends, and looks good and not noticable.
