Intake Tube to add to AFE Stage1
 
I have the AFE Stage1 intake. I like it but as most of you are probably aware, it retains the factory intake tube. Is there a direct fit replacement that will match up to the AFE Stage1? Is there enough benefit to justify replacing it? Not interested in replacing the AFE, just wondering if there's a tube replacement.

Won't the Airaid tube work? They're kinda pricey for tube though, IMO.

Hows the sound / performance of the stage 1 with the stock tube?

Sound - minimal at idle, no whistle, real nice and throaty under acceleration. I do really like the way it sounds.

Performance - no more/no less than any one else would claim with another intake. I'd like to think I felt a little something extra. But I'd say it put me further back in my wallet than in my seat...but isn't that all intakes, ha?

On that note, I realize my original question is a bit redudant given the write ups and discussions on intakes. I'm just wondering if anyone has added the tube to the AFE Stage1 with worth while results.

Can't comment on the results but as RAM EM said, Airaid makes what they call a modular intake tube that I'm sure would bolt right up. Seems like it runs $100-120. The biggest difference I see is that it's completely smooth versus the OEM intake tube being accordion style. I would think the smooth tube would flow better but I also doubt there is any significant performance difference.
