XH Snorkel on EA Fairmont Ghia

Hey there guys, I bought a XH Falcon snorkel to replace my standard intake. But when I went to go and put the snorkel in, only then when I lifted the bonnet I noticed that the factory inlet tube's mouth is part of the factory fan shroud, has anyone else come accross this problem?? I will be ditching the clutch fan soon, for a BPT thermofan kit, so hopefully I will be ablt to get rid of the fan shroud.

Re: XH Snorkel on EA Fairmont Ghia

yes, get a hacksaw and chop it off, file it smooth and install the XH snorkel

Lets go find that Hotdog tree I planted

No worries thanks for that, that'll teach me next time to measure up before I buy.
