When you disconnect the throttle body your check engine light will come on. At least thats what my 04 did. jason

save your money on aftermarket elbows and try and find a stock 05+ elbow on ebay. The amount of gains you will get with an elbow are miniscule. I had an intakeelbows.com elbow on my truck and noticed zero difference.

Have you seen the elbow on the 04 and earlier:popcorn: , there is a little noticeable difference but you pry would get the same by just switching to an 05+ elbow, as the earlier ones are restrictive.
If you do go with the flimsier model don't overtighten as it will make it out of round just go buy a can of hairspray and spray a little on both surfaces and tighten to spec and it won't pop off.

I've got an '04 which use to have the throttle plate but no butterfly. If you unhook the harness that goes to the throttle body spacer, you'll see that there are no pins inside of the connector, if you have the throttle body that doesn't have the butterfly. Therefore if you disconnect it it will not through a CEL unless it has the butterfly. I got rid of the stock elbow and throttle plate and got a banks high ram intake elbow kit. This kit comes with the big elbow and a bigger discharge pipe from the intercooler.
