Stock Intake Question

Hey Everyone, Possibly a stupid question but... With all of the manifold options available for fuel injection from aluminum single planes to sheet metal type why do most seem to stick with the stock set up? Are there specific advantages?

Thanks in advance.

Yeah, it's cheaper. It's a good intake for low end torque, but an aftermarket intake manifold can help at high RPM.

Thanks Matt, that is what I suspected. Are folks generally using the factory PCM for stock or mild builds as well? I have read through the different threads and it appears that most of the bigger builds are going with different controllers.

The stock mass air computer can handle a few mild modifications, although getting a tune is always preferred over running the stock tune with aftermarket parts. There comes a point when your build becomes too extreme for a stock ecu to compensate for, even with chip tuning. Aftermarket ecu's give you control over more variables/parameters that allow you to better tune your specific combination.
