I was looking at the Air intakes that are coming out (will give me something to keep my hands busy till the 18psi kit or the twincharge kit comes out). But I was wondering if anyone has scene the specs (dyno or something). Compairing the Weapon-R Intake vs the K&N. Any help will be alot of help.

Does anyone know where we can get a Dyno of the Weapon R intake on a RedLine?

well that was quick. they just posted a thread here about possibly making one, along with headers, etc.

the fact that they are already available is beyond me at this point

Yea, but they never gave his car a baseline dyno, they just put a piece of pipe on, and now they're going to dyno it. So, there's no good baseline to compare it with... sounds pretty shady to me...

ditto, people complain about a company like K&N charging so much (not me), but they don't realize most "other" intakes you'll end up finding on e-bay are of lesser quality materials more prone to heat soak, and they likely just toss a pipe on there and call it a day. i'll stick with K&N or AEM quality any day over the cheap stuff. in fact, the weapon-R stuff seems to me like an equal to APC in terms of quality and ACTUAL performance minded development.

Thats exactly why Im spending a little more money and waiting a little longer for the K&N. Hopfully I'll get it in a couple of days. I ordered it last thursday and the company said 3-5 days some hopfully I'll get it soon. :)

Agreed, they needed a base line with all the eractic Dynos I have seen there is no way to just claim.

I was talking to the sales guy on the phone and he said it would arrive in 3-5 days so I assuming so. After the shit I went through with Advanced Auto Parts I should have specificly asked. If I dont get it by tomarrow then I'll have to call on it.
