CFM+ Small Intake Elbow- Black Powdercoated

Is anyone using this elbow?? If so, does it make any noise?

I currently have the chrome elbow from Intakeelbows.com and getting rid of it since it makes a howling noise due to the material being so thin.
Noise is from about 1500-2200 rpm and even louder when cold.

Mine does this too. It is from innovative diesel but it performs like a champ.

Mine performs well, I just am tired of hearing the moaning/howling noise. Also, it's hard to keep shiny without scratches. If I look at it wrong it scratches! It also gets pretty hot sometimes.

So, I'm hoping the CFM+ elbow eliminates the noise and stays cooler since it's made out of different material. Also, want something less noticable.

I hear ya on the scratches, they also bend pretty easy.

I was going to get the CFM elbow but couldn't bring myself to pay the price the wanted for them a couple months ago/when they came out.

I have the Accufab piece, I highly doubt the CFM will be quieter. From the pics Ive seen it looks even thinner.

Thanks, yes it can be touchy through 3rd gear. But I have a twin 61mm snail kit in the making. (I hope)
1968 Fastback and a 1969 mach1 are my 2 dream cars. When I grow up I hope to have one or the other.
to a fellow mach owner.
