Re: Weapon R Intake

If your just looking for noise and under the hood bling then go ahead and get the Weapon R because one low tech intake is on average as good as the another.If your interested in performance then read my intake write up before ditching your stock set up.


Please consider these points before you waste your money.

1: Your stock intake is a CAI intake .
2:When you consider that a 4cyl engine only has 1 intake runner demanding air at any time combined with the fact that the air intake piping is much larger then any single runner , the stock intake is not restrictive.Some types of intakes can effect the tuning of the engine by raising the engines power band somewhat given a little more top end power at the expense of mid/low rpm torque and throttle response. This is not a good trade off when you have a 4cyl engine trying to move a 3000 lb car.
3:You can somewhat improve throttle response and thus improve mid rpm power by getting a OEM TYPE S intake that uses a 2nd air box just before the throttle body to influence the tunning of the engine air pulses in a positive way. Also when accelerating hard , if you only hold the accelerator pedal down 3/4 to 4/5 of the way until the VTEC engages that also seems to give a boost to mid rpm power.
4:The stock intake has a valve at its input that gives the ecu the ability to tweak the intakes response an effectively tune the intake for the range of rpms your operating at which helps a lot with low/mid rpm power and fuel economy. .No aftermarket intake does that.
5: For a sound that has a lower pitch while not turning your intake into cop
bait, all you need to do is plug the passageway leading to the resonator box thats below the air filter box. Just temporally remove the funnel at the bottom of the air filter box and look down the hole in the bottom to see what needs to be plugged.

Check out this write up below from a UK web site.





Here is where you can get a TYPES S INTAKE.

Nice thread, so your saying the type-s box and chamber are the best.. when used with an aftermarket piping..

For ex. A weapon r intake.. use the 3" piping for that but put the type s air box and chamber on it.. so somewhat.of a frakenstien intake haha
