intake elbow swap

Found a 06 elbow ($40) for my 03. Wondering if anyone has done this, and is it worth it?

You'd have to remove your throttle plate assembly due to the height difference and I'm not sure what issues that may or may not cause with the PCM. With some flash versions even unplugging your EGR valve causes fan clutch engagement issues. Anyway, all you would gain is a cleaner looking engine.

SCT, no studs...yet, Dual OEM intake air filter housings, Banks intercooler & intake elbow, Banks exhaust system, Windrunner ported intake manifold, Bullet Proof Diesel remote oil cooler & thermostat, AirDog2 (plus a couple spares), Power steering filter (Amsoil dual-bypass), MagTec deep ATF pan, Electric oil pre-lub pump, Dakota Digital gauges.

Not worth it on an 03,the throttle plate is just a spacer on an 03.

04 ECSB 4x4 f250 Lariet,looney tune,egr delete,4" diamond eye exhaust,studded water/meth inj. . 04 GTO with a 408 stroker (506hp 468tq.).

As already mentioned, the 03 just has the EGR throttle plate housing, no throttle plate involved. Just to be sure, you can unplug one of the connectors to see if there are any electrical prongs. In the pic below, you will see where one of the electrical plugs go, and there is no wiring at all. If you have no wiring, then you don't have a throttle plate. So the only gain will be a cleaner looking engine bay. If you can get the 06 elbow for a good price and want a less cluttered engine bay, then go for it.

Yes, throttle plate- butterfly valve (first pic). Second pic is what the late '04-07 truck elbows look like, less clutter.

Yours shouldn't have the throttle plate, only the late 04's and some early 05's have the throttle plate. Unless the past owned put it in, you should not have one.
