EL GT Induction.... EF_GUY ???

hey Gary what was the part number for the EL GT snorkle? Did you have any trouble fitting/ordering the part?

Do you recommend it? Any gains or losses ?

Cheers mate

Yeah, don't have the part number on me, but i can find out tonite when i get home.

I definitly reccomend it as the opening and neck of the tube is bigger than the stock EF- EL ones. Whats more for $30 odd you can't go wrong unlike that SS cold air rip off at $300.00.

Basically the tube is fitted to the XR8's of EF-EL's and also on the EL GT. :s2: :s2:
The tube is actually larger than the TSeries tube.


Dunno if it's in the mind but i did notice a better pickup in the higher revs say 3500rpm onwards.

Does it just screw into the stock holes? or do you have to re-drill?

Yeah i'm very keen on fitting that part. I went into Sinclair Ford at penrith and they had no idea what i was talking about. It was very annoying as the parts guy was very stubborn.

It's easier to ask for the air intake snorkle off an EL XR8....

I fitted the part today...

It is considerably larger than the stock snorkle. Very happy with it. I would have liked the T-Series tube though ( nice tickford wings)

Thanks again partsguy
