Weapon R Secret Weapon CAI... anyone know about it?

Does anyone know anything about this CAI? It sounds like it should be decent, but I wanted to know if anyone is using it and if its decent or not. Also, i was wondering if I should go with either this or the GM CAI. Any sugestions would be great!!!! thanks!!!

Yeah the weapon R is made for all different models of the cobalt. Just make sure you order the right one. I don't know how they run though.

'05 Base Coupe, Blue, 2.2L, 5 speed manual, Too many mods to list in this signature. I'll just say insanely loud system, fully upgraded suspension (nothing original), Intake, Full Exhaust from the engine back, Rims, Tires, etc... Give me about a month to get back stateside and pics will be posted in the vBGarage.

the weapon r for the 2.4 is a shitty make. going with the [email protected] if you want to go sri but if you want CAI i suggest either injen or aem.

the weapon r is poorly designed.

The thing about air intakes is that it really doesn't matter which brand you get because you're only paying for the sticker/decal on the side of it, you can go to o'riley's or any other parts store and piece one together from their stuff and have an intake just as good as any name-brand one...

But here's what I can tell you about it. I've heard that it doesn't come with mounting brackets so you'll have to fabricate some way for it to not be wiggling around everywhere. Also, it uses a oiled filter. What most people that buy the Weapon R do is also purchase an AEM dryflow filter to put on it. Other than that it's six one way and a half dozen the other... There really is no reason to be concerned with which is better because they all have a straighter and wider pipe than stock and that's all that matters for intakes...

"... but it's ok, we're going to QuakeCon!"

ok sweet thanks. Just one more question sorry guys haha. But I live in PA so theres always water on the road, will I need to worry about the cold air intake with it being so low? Also, is there a difference between the wet and dry filters?

Yes, CAI's will suck up a ton of water.

My turbo lag is your courtesy head start.
