BUT.......

AU XR8 snorkels apparently don't fit EF/EL V8's.

I have a EL GT snorkel on my EF, but it looks exactly the same as an XR8 one. I think it cost $38, made some difference, as I didn't have one before.

I don't have the part number, but don't get it from Ford, get it from Motor Traders, they seem to be cheaper for every part, and they get all of sent over from geelong anyway.

The EL GT uses the EF/EL XR8 Snorkle. Part number EFTVE 9A624 A. The AU one hits the power steering pump on the V8's is I can remember correctly.

Yup, same size as XR8 ones. EDXR8 is also correct - I bought an AU XR8 snorkel and had dramas fitting it for that very reason. You're better off setting up a proper cold air duct to the front bumper :s6:

No EF XR8's, EL XR8's and EL GT all use the same snorkle (PN EFTVE 9A624 A).
