Intake elbow

Those of you that have installed an intake elbow. Did you notice any gains (power, cooler EGT, MPG etc)?

No. Just consider it a supporting mod, like intake and exhaust. Couldn't tell you if it was worth it or not.

It made my wallet lighter... I recall a chart showing up to a 10ft lb of torque increase, but like Dave said, it's mostly a supporting mod.

Works great as a supporting mod, I noticed a big difference(SOTP) when I first used it with my Quad module, and when I shifted to the SCT.

Noticed a slight drop in EGT, coupled with the "butterfly valve delete" mod. Wasn't towing at the time so can't give a "loaded" number in degrees of EGT drop. Got the trailer with the truck as it sits today.

That's probably the most popular location for a single shot.
