He got you the wrong one an XH ute is an EF body shape with EF moter but ED intake manifold and airbox etc but still runs eec 5 i think. I reakon he got you an EF onwards XR snorkel. Here is a piuc of what it should look like coz I too originally was lead to believe I needed an XG one and an XH was no good.

Make sure its for the XH1 and not any of the xr utes becaues the xr ones used the BBM which obviously wont work.

You have to hacksaw the shroud a bit to get it to fit.

It's like danege says, you need an XH1 snorkel (for EEC4 airbox & EA/D style intake) not XHII or XR utes.

To fit the snorkel (and thus be able to close the bonnet) you need to hacksaw the old mount off to allow it to fit. Do a search there are before and after shots here somewhere.

If you get thermo's you wont need to hack the shroud :) also free up a few more ponies.

I had the same problem, and i went to 2 ford places.

eventually the guy said its an XH Ute "OUTBACK" snorkel.

It was basically introduced to reduce induction noise, that is all.

The shroud for the thermos ef onwards dont have the molded part where you screw down the original snorkel.
