Question First Mod complete! added EL GT Snorkel

Woohoo! feels good, even if it cost me $33 and I may never be able to tell the difference but it is still my first mod!

Just one question though, I noticed the picture on fordmods.tk of the AU XR8 snorkel has a whole heap of scrap plastic on the side of the snorkel mouth, much like the standard one I just took out. However the EL GT snorkel is open from one side to the other, no scrap plastic at all. Is the EL GT snorkel wider throughout than the AU XR8 equiv?

will take a few pics tonight...

A pity they didn't put some kind of marking or symbol to show it was either Tickford (if it is) or that is was a GT part... still looks pretty good though

you'll have to excuse the dodgy image quality, guess thats what you get when you pay bottom dollar for a digital camera

the first measurement value is the measurement of the GT Snorkel shown, the second value is the measurement taken from my standard snorkel taken out.

I reckon I may have picked up on a difference too. I was driving down the freeway the other day and someone in front of me was doing 80, and we all know what thats like, so I thought I'd show him my appreciation by passing him at the correct speed limit... in other words I planted my foot . I don't think I've ever had this much power at speeds past 80ks, it took off like it was running from a fire.

Not bad for $33.80 (Part #EFTVE 9A624 A)

I just recently fitted the EL GT snorkel to my AU. I ended up cutting the airbox end of the old snorkel and fitting it on the end of the new one so I could lengthen it an inch or so to stop from fouling my radiator hose.
