They are the same from AU2 XR8 onwards......

Does yours have the Tickford wings on the snorkel?? They cost about $23 for Ford. Power increase will be next to none! Xr6 owners will get more of a benefit because they are a quite a bit bigger.

Does the T-series snorkel fit onto a EF II Fairmont (6 cylinder)? Does the snorkel provide any benefits and if so is it in performance, fuel economy or torque?

I believe the alternative is a EL GT snorkel but I have heard they are a bit pricey. But the T-series snorkel does have the Tickford wings where the EL GT snorkel doesn't.

Ivefitted it to my EFs1 it took about 20min I found it to improve throttle response and is quite largerthan the original and about $320 cheaper than an aftermarket snorkle offered by local exaust shops. Its a cheap mod that if you are not satisfied whith you havent gone broke trying

Thanks for the reply. Do you have a part number for the snorkel? Just confirming the price quoted by XLR8 ($23)?

To remove the current snorkel do I just unscrew the two screws which bolt the snorkel to the body and unclip?

I had to file a bit from the fan shroud so it sat properly , and drill a new mounting hole , try another dealer or ask for someone else.I had to pay up front because it was something they didnt normaly stock , tyr going into the dealer and talking face to face.

Raven,
My only comment would be to find a new spare parts dealer - there's no excuse for Arogance.

I just rang my ford dealer and you've got the T in the part number in the wrong spot
It should be AUTVE 9A624A and at $25.90 I've got to try it

See yah
