Or you can save your money since there is nothing to gain by changing the stock elbow. The elbow is not a restriction and can flow way more than the intake and heads are capable of dealing with.

It looks pretty... That's the only reason I'm getting a CFM+.

I added a solid 1 mpg+ when I got the accufab. It was well worth it.

I find that really hard to believe when it does nothing to improve air flow. The elbow is not where the restriction occurs. changing parts in front of the restriction has no effect on flow into the cylinder.

Yes I have a CFM+ Largemouth with their metal CAC tube. It is carbon fiber and looks pretty. It will provide a convenient place to hook up a Meth/Water injection setup or pull a mechanical boost feed from. Other than that nothing.

The right angle in the stock piece definitely does not maximize airflow. The poor design is what causes the restriction, not necessarily the diameter.

The only benefit of a aftermarket elbow is external ports and "looks pretty".

Certainly the oem elbow could be better designed BUT it is capable of flowing more than the intake and heads are capable of using so adding the capability to flow more air there does not = more air into the cylinder. Thus there is no gain in performance or efficiency.
