performance intake manifold

I have found the brands cfm, bd diesel, sinister, and s&b. I believe these on a dodge they call an intake horn. Is the stock 6.0 intake 90 restrictive? I'm wanting to make my engine breath easier and faster.

The elbow isn't the problem, and replacing it would do little, if anything.

Yep, the restriction is the intake manifold and ports of the heads. The aftermarket elbows are good for bling and drilled/tapped ports, but even then you can drill/tap the stock elbow for ports.

I've heard positive reviews on the no limit.

I'm running a no limit cac pipe and like it a lot. I did other mods at the same time so I'm not sure if it made a difference or not. But it looks really good.

Consider this: what's the point of a bigger CAC pipe or elbow if it's going into the same sized hole in the intake manifold? It's like putting a 750 Holley on top of your old cast iron intake manifold. Sure it looks cool, but it's not doing anything else.

I bought a used Banks technicooler with plumbing and elbow. Nope, didn't do squat. Since I don't tow much, I have no real data there. But daily driving, yeah, 500 bucks lighter is all I got out of it.

So let me break down something for.most people who say the elbows.don't do much. Your mainly.correct. all the little s&b, cfm etc... style.that utilize the factory CAC cold pipe suck. Complete waste of.money. however the no limit is a great product because it flows the air in a less.restrictive manor, as being its not a sharp 90 degree bend. Where as the no limit is a swept 90 degree over a bigger span creating more velocity an proper unrestrictive flow. But that's just me. I don't work for no limit, I don't push their product, I don't make.commission, I just have great results with the no limit and would justify the money

No limit would have to be the exception for the simple fact that they clean up the bends and such. The Banks tubing looks just like the OEM, just larger diameter.
