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.

TECH SPECS :
Weapon*R Intakes are CNC Mendrel Bent out of 6061 aluminum, and are flow tuned to match every engine application to maximize engine output. All Colored Weapon*R Intakes are now Powdercoated and have tig-welded fittings for a sure seal.

THE FILTER :
To increase Intake charge, we developed the Dragon Filter, which features an internal tuned flow velocity stack design and Air Turbulance guides to maximize gains. Weapon*R uses the highest quaility High Flow 4PLy Poly Urethane Foam to ensure a protected high performance engine. Many studies have shown Higher flow & Better Dirt Filtration with Foam Filter and the conventional cotton filter. Flow rates of up to 80% more Air, which increases your engines performance.

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).

I had one and like after a month it kinda cracked and the filter is like really really cheap material. But if you guys wanna go through that then be my guest.
