It should pop straight onto the airbox and you need a 3mm drill bit to relocate the screws, they'll sit back further towards the cabin.

Alternaticely the XH or EL GT snorkel should fit right on.

The Intake snorkel will do 2 tenths of nothing to the power output but will increase throttle response.

Well someone's pulling something 'cause changing to AU2 XR8 intake snorkell will not make lighting your tyres up any easier than the standard snorkell. Maybe your right foot's put on some weight?

Red-i whered you get your avatar?

When I installed the XH snorkel to my EA all I noticed was a little more induction noise and better throttle response, seems to rev out a little easier, but I think alot of it is in peoples heads most of the time
