Weapon R ram air?
I've been looking at the Weapon R Short Ram with the ram air kit and I'm really thinking about getting it.

My question is does anyone know anything about Weapon R?? This ram air kit looks really cool and the 03 celica has a great place to mount it.

What part fell apart? Please guys, DETAILS!

I know guys that have them (not celicas), and they have never had a problem. Only problem I have herd about is my brothers got a hole in it from rubbing on the battery ties (eclipse).

if you want it get it, my friend put one in his 91 teg and the filter got all funked up after a few days so he bought a new one, a month or so later the piping turned black in some places
