Can I run a COBB SF INTAKE on stock tune?

Hey guys, I have a stock 2012 speed3 with 32k miles and I want to start modding it.

Now before you guys start saying "Forget the intake, get an AP" I know, I will be getting it down the line eventually, I just don't have the funds right now to justify spending that much money on it. But anyways,

Any of you know if I can run the COBB SF INTAKE SYSTEM with stock tune? I've only found one forum post on this topic, and everyone said yes, but on the COBB website, people asked the same question and COBB said that you need a tune. Do any of you know? Thanks!

For clarification, can and should are two very different things on this topic.
Can you? Yes.
Should you? No.

There's a reason why everyone says save your money and get an AP, it's because that's the first thing you should ever get for a speed. It's by far the most important item before any other mods engine wise.

^^ Yup this. There is a reason why when you read "get an AP first" (and fuel pump internals) keeps popping up on your searches when it comes to performance mods on the speeds.

If you want to start modding the ms3, then I suggest making a plan to save $1000 first off. Then, buy yourself an AccessPort and Fuel Pump Internals. You may find a deal on these two, and have enough left over to get a rear motor mount.

After that, then you can start adding upgrades piece-by-piece, such as getting an intake now, then a TIP, RP, etc..., safely, and make the most of each upgrade. Don't let the allure of throwing in an intake first get to you. The money is better spent elsewhere right now.

Do the AP with stage 0 map. Biggest improvement of any mod. Internals next and have at everything else.
