Intake Elbow

I've been looking for an intake elbow for the 6.4L. I was starting to think no one made one until I found this one:

No Limit Fab NLFITKIT Intake Elbow Kit Fit 2008-10 Ford Powerstroke's

With this being the only one I can find, I'm skeptical of it. Does anyone have any input on this? I know the intake elbow restricts the 6.0L a lot but, haven't heard any issues with the 6.4L. Is this pipe legit? Does anyone think it's worth the purchase?

That Sinister kit looks better than the one I found.

I know on the 6.0L, the factory elbow has a 90 degree turn in it. CFM makes an after market elbow for that motor that takes out the 90 degree turn to open up the mouth of the pipe to allow more air flow. They make it for 6.0L and 7.3L but not the 6.4L. That's why I'm curious as to if it's even an issue. But, the EGR delete would be great to have on that Sinister kit.

The No Limit intake kit is legit.
Might want to have a look at Rudy's Diesel website.

they sell an adapter plate for a 6.0 to a 6.4 intake elbow if you went that route ,but their are several brands around for the 6.4 ,well worth the money and nice addition to the egr delete and the cac pipe , youll see throtlle reasponse forsureand more flow, im running the Flo -Pro egr delete , cac pipe and intake elbow!!! very reasonable and no fitting issues , get a hold of PTP a vendor on here they have a kit aswell , with an elbow available - good luck

do you lose cruise with the intake elbow?

Do you need to install a wastegate with the egr deleted? or would blockoff plates be better?

not meaning to hijack, just some questions

I can't imagine losing cruise with just the elbow. In my mind, that's affiliated more with your throttle position sensor.

I don't know a lot about wastegates but, it's my understanding that it's not necessary unless you're increasing your boost significantly; which I think would fall in line with a turbo upgrade. Installing simple bolt on intake upgrades wouldn't justify it.

With the early tunes you would lose cruise when you disconnected the egr valve and the throttle plate. This got fixed a while ago and the new tunes shouldn't give you problems.
If your in doubt call up who ever your getting tunes from and verify.
