XH snorkle for ED

i am going to fit an XH snorkle to my ED xr6 tmorro, a good idea? i was looking at buying it from ford aqnd adding a K &N airfilter to slot into my normal airbox. With the XH snorkle, will it just attach to the airbox as per the normal one, although needing 2 new screw holes to fit onto the actual car? i was thinkin of just drilling the same size hole as the normal, which enables me to use the nomal bolts to hold it in. am i on the right track? cheers

Re: XH snorkle for ED

XH snorkel should fit wiht a minimum of fuss. If the bonnet does not shut properly, simply trim the top off the snorkel down bit by bit until it does fit. This won't impact on the effectiveness of the snorkel.

If you stuff it up, it's just a piece of plastic and you can always replace with the std snorkel again

Yeah just drill holes in it. I did that with my EL snorkel (for V8).

Re: XH snorkle for ED

twin? the intake is on the passenger side. why have two?

Andrich if it's basically a stock XR6, all you need is a good panel filter and an XH snorkel. Anything else is overkill, and potentially defectable

Re: XH snorkle for ED

no probs. I think I had the detail wrong with what needs trimming back too, I believe it's the rad support cover (it's only plastic).

Here's a recent thread in the .au forums depicting an XH snorkel mod:
