i kind of like the newer composite intakes. they have a reusable gasket on them, light, way cheaper than aluminum, and are still pretty durable. when's the last time you had an impact to the intake manifold that you were thinking "man, i better go check and see if that cracked my intake manifold"? i have however seen some poorly designed ones (cough cough ford), but they seem win win to me. you lose weight turbulence over castings through lighter materials and smoother plenum walls.
