Here are some pics of my carbon fiber short ram intake my GF got me tell me what you think.
dude i hate to say it, but at the heart of it. it's just a bent piece of metal. all that really matters is what diameter the tubing is and what kind of filter you are using (i.e. paper or foam). really the only time you are getting into differences are fitment and durability of the product. why do you think people selling ebay intakes make such a killing?what brand intake is it? I ask that because your intake is the lung of your car. if it is a crappy one, I wouldn't put it on there just because it's CF. I also ask for brand because usually, some brands are more popular because they have been good to customers. only way to find out if this intake is good is if the engine fails down the road due to debris getting into the engine.
As a Weapon-R owner, I have $.02 to contribute to this conversation.Well my Girl Friend got it for me so i can complain if she didn't know. It works pretty well for now. I'm probably going to change it down the road to a weapon r or ingen when i get more money. My GF was just trying her best so it will do for now. It does make a nice noise. LOL
