The Stealth is a pretty agressive dual plane and you will be better leaving the stock intake on it for now. I would say that whether you trade or not depends on your future plans for the engine. If you want something radical then keep the tunnel ram. With a Stealth on a stock engine you will lose low end torque. I would say the Stealth would be best suited for a cam with ~250*@.050".

I put together an engine just so my car would move under it's own power. Stock short block, ported D3VE heads, Wieand 8021 CJ type intake, stock exhaust. As was said, NO torque down low! I mean a bunch! Could be different for the D0VE type intake but I think it is more due to the huge plenum volume.
