MS elbow only fits a specially made MS filter. The filter that's designed for the elbow is different from the MS standard drop-in or any drop in. This makes it more difficult to test the individual components.

Is the elbow worth the bulk of the hp? if so how?

If not my guess is the filter is a good 5-6hp and elbow 5. Scoops 1
