airraid intake.. should i make a tube?

so yeah i put an airraid filter/(box) on there this past weekend. i really like the sound, & i maybe feel it registering on the ol' butt dyno a little.. could just be the sound.

what i'm wondering is, just how restrictive is that stock tube? i was thinking i'd get a tube with the kit. if i wanted to make one, just take measurements & cut a 4" exhaust elbow in the right spots, right? really i just want to know if i'll benefit from this at all.

also what's the scoop on that "poweraid" spacer? any gains to be had on a 7.3?

TIA guys.

Stock tube is fine, a metal one will just clean up the look...

The spacer... JUNK.

I just picked up the full AirRaid intake and it came with a plastic/composite intake tube. It was nice- very smooth inside and fits well. I definitely want to get a prefilter though for the AirRaid filter that was included. I liked the sound too and the 'ol butt dyno shows improvement, definitely less turbo lag.

for a 7.3? did i get some "stage 1" model or some ****? i just went to my local speed shop & asked what air intakes they had for mine.. i'd think they'd sell me the more expensive of the two though..

Yup its an '00 7.3 Ex... I was trying to see if Airaid sells the tube by itself for you but I don't see it listed in their catalog. The one I bought was their part number 400-222 AIRAID Filter Company
This was the kit that replaces the whole box and battery tray. I was going to get an AFE intake but after looking at the two they were made very similar and the Airaid was quite a bit less (meaning leftover money for other parts )
