snorkel for V8 ?

have just finished searching for info about fitting a larger snorkel. some threads say the ELXR8 or ELGT snorkel will fit straight onto the ED others say it won't fit does anybody know for sure. Is the EDXR8 or ED sprint one any bigger than the standard falcon/ fairmont one ?

Re: snorkel for V8 ?

I fitted a larger snorkel to my EB V8 when I had it a few years back, but cant remember what it was off, it was definitely an XR6, EF I think...

Re: snorkel for V8 ?

I have the ELGT snorkel and it will fit, as will an EL/EF.
The AU Snorkel did not have a recess for the power steering pump.... I think?
The EL snorkels are better than the Ed snorkels.
I suggest trying a wrecker for an el (ef?) snorkel, or pay round $40+ for an ELGT one.
I did not notice much if any performance on a next to stock motor, but it does look better!

Re: snorkel for V8 ?

The EF/EL XR8 & EL GT are all the same snorkle (part number EFTVE 9A624 A) and fit straight on to my ED XR8. You should have no problems fitting that snorkle to any e-series V8. And no the ED XR8 one is no bigger than the standard V8 one.

It is quite a bit larger and flows a lot more air. Price always use to be around $30-40 but that may have changed.
