Enjoy having a real gas pedal! The stock tune lets you "suggest" the speed of the car.

They said you had to have heads, cams, TB, LT headers, upraded intake manifold, and aggressive tuning to make the racer intake shine. (and really not so much on the 4.6L 281 CI, they said 302 motors needed the racer)

With that information, and knowing I would install a Whipple 10 PSI HO kit before I did all that to my engine, I opted for the street intake.
The HP/TQ differences are minimal
