I would suggest an XH snorkle to replace the EA one, I think air will not be rammed down the tubes given the size, i would expect air to draw in to them as a vacuum effect of the engine under revs.

A vacuum is not bad, it just means that the engine is drawing the air in, instaed of the airforce from the car moving shoving the air in (shoving is better).

If you can find a way to get 2.5 inch or 3 inch pipe there, you will have something :0)

What you have made there will be utterly insignificant to the amount of cold air already being drawn in by the existing snorkel.
The best way to improve on the exisitng setup is to fit an XH snorkel.
I can also tell by one of the pics that you should grab an earlier rubber pipe which fits between the TB and lower air box. The earlier ones were bigger.

Soxx is refering to the rubber intake hose from the throttle body to the bottom of the airbox. On the EA MPI, they had a larger diameter piping.

You have no idea what you are doing do you !!!!. You need to force the air into the system, Like a funnel. The system that i've got on my BA XR6 is an SS cold air induction system, the princiable is the same for any car. And NO it didn't come from a Holden SS. you will also want to change the air filter to an K&N or simular

ghto_man, that green stuff, was the filter, it stopped bugs and dirt getting in there. when i pulled it off, there was heeps of bugs and stuff in there. you have the same bumper as me, the piping went down past the throttle body, and underneath the car. you will need an intake pipe about 3 inches to get any real air coming through

am_bad, i am sure SS Inductions make a air intake for AU's. have a search, they have a website
