All you need to do is go lift your hood up and look at the stock one. Seeing the factory one and how crimped it it is enough to justify replacing it. You will see some improvement with the factory intake elbow still in place, but you would see the most benefit if you did a CFM+ or Dirty Diesel intake elbow with the aftermarket CAC pipe.
The companies that make them are....
1. Elite Diesel Engineering
2. Street Diesel Performance
3. MBRP Performance Exhaust
4. River City Diesel
5. Dirty Diesel Customs
There may be a few others, but those are the most popular.
