Do you need an upgraded intake for a tune

I have the JB+, I want to put it in my car. Do I need an upgraded intake for this tune?

Upgrade to injen or is the stock one fine?

Stock is just fine. Get a aftermarket drop in filter.

Stock is fine, you probably dont want to upgrade the intake until you take the plunge and upgrade to a JB3... Or PROcede, and you are pushing upwards of 400+HP, with the JB+, and intake might actually hurt your performance, rather than help it.. It might sound cool, but you won't notice any diff. in performance... But others may disagree, so correct me if I'm wrong...

It couldn't hurt to upgrade to a DCI.
They're going for so cheap right now.
But as the others said, you'll be fine with stock.
