Have you done the EGR delete? If so I would think you would gain more by changing out the elbow, as there are a lot of restrictions in it. I personally can't say what the gain would be on the cold pipe, but it doesnt look nearly as restrictive as the elbow with EGR valve and other stuff in it.

I was told to stay away from the aftermarkter elbows by Diesel performance in WI. Because the aftermarkter elbows lean out the drivers side of the motor. Im new to the powerstorke world.

Did they specify the 6.4 ? The elbow is tied into the intake manifold and is located dead center of the top of the intake , so cant see it favoring a side , if anything it helps get more even flow of air to the intake , there is an issue with flow in the intake , that restricts aswell and can see issues with heat towards the back of the motor , due to restrictions in intake air flow is limited and flow does not make it all the way to the back of the motor , hope this helps a bit

I swapped mine out, didn't notice any real difference, maby 10-20F lower on the egts but its hard to tell, could just be the placebo effect. I saw a much bigger difference in my egt's when I installed the 4" DP, consistently 80-100F less. No real change in throttle response, smoke etc etc for either.

Please collect and message me Shell, Rotella oil cap codes aka "my miles matter" I'm trying to save up for a hat or something.

I agree with above. I cant imagine an aftermarket elbow limiting flow to the drivers side. If anything the intake manifold is the restriction and the back cylinders are receiving limited airflow.

Yes, you will notice a difference. Go with the MBRP or Flo-Pro pipe, either one will fit with the stock or aftermarket elbow.
