Can somebody tell me what a snorkel is please. What does it do to your car? etc.

Re: Question

do you mean the intake snorkle?
If so its the bit that runs from above your bumper, near the radiator (in engine bay) to the Air filter box.

People here usually put on a Tickford snorkle on their e-series because it is bigger and promotes more flow to the air intake. And should in theory give better power, fuel economy and throttle response. There will be a few threads about it in the tech area

Re: Question

courtesy of JR's site:



You can see the stock small BA snorkel (in black) compared to the BA XR6 Turbo snorkel (in blue)

And here is where it sits in the engine bay:

Re: Question

How much does it cost to get done roughly? and is it worth getting? and can my EB XR8 get it?


I feel like a tool asking all that

Re: Question

I can't remember which one you get for the EB, but it shouldn't cost more than about $40 from Ford spare parts dept, and you can install it yourself with a screwdriver and 5 mins . . . its dead easy.

Its good to see a girl driving a V8 falcon :)

Oh, did you do the quad light conversion on the XR ?
