Wink Weapon R Intake Installed!!


Received and installed Weapon R intake on MYOO RS. Ordered it from SPO Motorsports on Monday and recieved it in 2 Days. SPO
has excellent customer service and repsonded to my email questions about the intake very quickly. I would recommend SPO to anybody interested in the products they carry.

Now on to the Weapon R. I must say that I am pleased with the performance of the product, but all hardware was not included to properly install the unit and the unit itself doesnt seem to have been designed specificly for the 2.5 RS. I had to purchase a pvc tee joint and pvc hose connector. There are 3 tubes that run from the stock air box to the engine, but on the Weapon R there are only 2 inlets on the intake pipe. So I had two combine the two on the left hand with the tee and route the one on the right hand side to the other inlet. Which brings us to the hosing. The intake came with about a quarter of the hosing needed to install. i had to use some of the stock black tubing with a connector installed at the end, which connected into the red silicon hosing supplied. Seems kind of half a$$ for a unit that is supposed to include all necessary hardware.
Although as i said, I am pleased with the performance, I can definitely feel a difference in power and throttle response, which results in a serious growl under full throttle.

I acutally got everything that I wanted; the only extra thing I used was one of those ring clamps for a smaller hose... just wanted to be on the safe side.... and I also had to modify the MAF adaptor for the holes to match up properly... I really didn't even leave my house during the install... and so far I have no complaints...
