Fitting the Tickford AU Intake Snorkel for the Ford EF II Falcon

  • The AU2 XR8 Intake snorkel fitted to an EF Fairmont Ghia 6 Cylinder

    This document describes how to add the AU series XR8 Intake snorkel to the EF and EL 6 Cylinder Models.
    Unfortunately, this modification is not suitable for V8 Models, as the Snorkel does not clear the engine.
    This modification costs a total of $32.00 (+ $10 postage anywhere in Australia - Available from FERNTREE GULLY AUTO SALVAGE), and takes approximately 10 Minutes to fit
    The XR8 Snorkel itself has a throat diameter of roughly twice that of the standard Snorkel fitted to EF's, as well as larger snorkel opening.
  • The Snorkel Part number is TAUTVE-9A624A
    Also, you will require a 3mm drill bit, and a drill to relocate the Original Snorkel screws.
    Please Note : The snorkel requires some trimming in order for it to sit flush with the metal lip on the engine bay.
    In order to find the correct amount to trim,
  • 1) Remove the Original Snorkel, by removing the 2 retaining screws, and twisting the snorkel away from the Airbox.
  • 2) Fit the new AU XR8 snorkel to the Airbox, and mark the area that overlaps the metal lip.
  • 3) Whilst the snorkel is fitted, mark 2 holes where the snorkel mounting screws are to be placed
    Note the cutting line marked on this snorkel
  • 4) Cut the area of the snorkel using quality scissors, or a hobby / Stanley knife.
  • 5) Drill the 2 marked holes using the 3mm Drill bit, and taking care that you do not pierce the Radiator below.
