Upgraded Boost Tubes and Intake Elbow?

I am looking at picking up a aftermarket Intake elbow for my 6.0 and am wondering if it will be noticable. If I do go ahead and purchase one I was looking at getting the MBRP model that also sells a turbo to intercooler model. The only issue is I know the next step is a aftermarket intercooler and then those tubes may become spare parts.

thanks for any experience or advice in advance

For hot side (turbo to intercooler) when I do mine I will probably do the MBRP one. A mishimoto intercooler. Then for cold side (intercooler to intake) I would go with NO Limit CAC.

There wont be a noticeable difference with an intake elbow, they just look nice and have ports tapped. I would reconsider the mbrp CAC tube, it is 3.5" and cause slower spool.

Mbrp is a larger diameter tube I believe spool up time may suffer a bit unless you are going to upgrade turbo and/or injectors.
