Was looking at intake elbows for my 05 6.0L. Are they beneficial even with the stock air filter intake setup? Are they worth getting (hp gains and mpg gains)? What brand makes the best? thanks

In short, not worth mpg/HP gains but have a place or places for measuring boost and injecting water meth and or nitrous

honestly, if youre gonna order an intake, order the AFE package. its like $599 for the AFE bladerunner elbow and AFE intake. right now at XDP -

Bladerunner $347.06
AFE $366.30

package them together - $599, with XDP %10 off, $539.10.
when i get the money saved back up from ordering my SCT and EGR blockoff, im ordering that package.

Look for No Limit on psa for the whole cold side setup. Very legite.

I have a Banks Techni-Cooler with larger tubes, intercooler and elbow, let's just say I'm glad I bought it used for $500. Great for hauling towing, no change in hp/mpg.

Another point to consider, since the hole is the intake is unaltered, what's an elbow going to change?

Thanks guys...I'll put the idea on the back burner for a while until I get studded ago go with some crazy tunes that require the better air intake
