weapon r has an intake like the one i am describing. you can find it on their website. it looks like a flex tubing with a rectangular funnel at the top, like you could hook it up to you hood scoop and it runs into one of their intakes.
just believe me when I tell you it's called ram air. it's a concept. you would call the object/construction perhaps a ram air induction system or ram air Intake
. That is different from a Short Ram Intake
true, the weapon-R filter is open on the front...though:
weapon-R has done a great job at marketing and getting a magazine to show it had the most gains over other name brands. I don't believe it. In fact, asking around and talking to people it's generally agreed upon that weapon-r s**. I'm talking about the whole Intake
system. The system for the Celica is horrible. I was uninformed enough to try it, and had major bogging from that 3" tube. I did the Blue_Bomber mod and it was much better.
the ram air system advertised by weapon-R is part of what that RX8 guy was warning about: faulty claims and false ram air systems. there are very few true ram air systems and ones that work for that matter. a flex tube sucking up cold air is not going to cut it. you're going to need a custom-engineered ram air system for your car by one who builds pro race cars or is on the same level.
Aside from Intake
systems, the Apexi filter is generally regarded as the highest flowing. Some don't like it as a daily driver Intake
, because it is not oiled and doesn't stop water as well as oiled ones like K&N.
