Stock air cleaner is good to handle up to 500hp, and if you ment elbow, A '05 elbow will bolt to '03-'04, and eliminate the egr throttle body, also thier are no real performance gains with aftermarket set-ups for either one.

Seen Dyno sheets from a Dyno I trust of the AFE intake elbow gaining 20HP. This was a run it, switch it, run it scenario to see what it would gain...

afe stage 1 can generally be found used for cheap and fit in stock location. this way you get a reusable filter. Been running one for about 40K miles with no issues at all

It was nothing more than the regular.... Intake, Exhaust, Tuner. I think it was ran with and without elbow both before and after the elbow.

If bang for your buck is what you are after. You must also take into consideration the cost of replacement filters.
Think about a cleanable drop in.
