Cfm big mouth intake elbow and banks cac

Does anyone know if the Cfm big mouth intake elbow is a direct replacement for the banks high ram that comes as a kit with their intercooler. Wondering if it will fit their larger tubes.

Yes it will work, I replaced my high ram with a CFM big mouth intake before i ditched all of it for a no limit intake.

It looks a lot cleaner and the factory size pipes spool better than the bigger banks tubes.

Oh ok, I was thinking bigger tubes plus freer flowing cac would make it easier for the turbo to spool because of less back pressure from a freer flowing air path. Shows what I know, lol.

Lol i thought the same thing but i think it looses too much velocity with the bigger tubes.

I'll be the first to admit that my knowledge of forced air induction is extremely limited.

I also went from Banks high ram elbow kit to the large mouth CFM+ kit to the No Limit. Love the No Limit CAC pipe.

My banks elbow and pipes work great. Due to debate on here about the bigger pipes I recorded parameters on test runs before and after. There was no change in boost or spool, I even seem to feel the spool was slightly faster but not measurable. No way spending more money to replace banks elbow and pipes is worth the dough. Take your wife to a weekend getaway instead, much bigger dividends

I'm also a facts based guy, so if you truely break it down to physics, the larger volume will be slower to compress but will be cooler air - so just about a wash in power I'm guessing. I argue the stock turbo has no issue building pressure in the larger banks IC and pipes, so I enjoy the advantage of cooler air. My banks IC kit did drop the EGTs 50-100 across the board.
