I have the Place Racing CAI with a K&N filter, to me i feel a little more kick with it, but that's with exahaust and accel spark plug wires.

lark, the weapon r intake is an over priced gimmick. The ram air is going to have so minimal affect in making power.

Most of the power generated from an intake has to do more with intake length and restrictiveness, rather than air temp. Power from an intake comes from the reduced pumping losses (making it easier to inhale air in). Where the power is going to be generated (in the low end or high end range of the RPM) depends on the intake length. Generally, a long intake like a CAI will make the power in the lod to mid rpm range, and a WAI will make the power in the mid to high rpm range.

I have JWT pop charger (WAI), It works great on my car... easy installation (thanks to Noah)... just "plug and play".... when engine passes 4000 rpm, you can feel some power increase... to better answer your question, do you have an auto or stick?

you will need some basic tools, other than that, JWT pop charger is easy to install...

hope it helps.

it won't be significant gain, try going with headers too after. I'm pretty sure you'll feel something with I/E/H
