No brainer...weapon-R breath engine compartments heat...Cobb Tuning will bereath cool air from the fender...cooler air=more power I'll be ordering one next month for MY99 Legacys 2.5 GT!!!

Plus Cobb Tuning specializes in Subarus (Only!!!) Weapon-R specializes in nothing!!!

My $0.02,

CRAZY KEN...Oh, by the way, I have currently the Weapon-R F1 Carbon Fiber intake with a K&N filter on my Legacy already!!!

Cobb Tuning intake all the way. It is a cold air intake unlike the Weapon R. It goes into the fender well which supplies cold-air.

I would have to go with the COBB tuning. I have never been one for Weapon R, nor there lack of quality.

even my more knowledgable Honda friends stay away from Weapon R. buy the intake that was actually tested and designed with our car in mind; Cobb (or Rallispec)

how hard is the cobb tuning intake to install?
i want to get one but not sure if i'll kill my warranty. if it's easy to put on i could just take it off when i go to the dealer but I don't want to screw up anything.

The cobb tuning intake is easy to install. If you don't count the time for removing stock intake, the installation will take you less than 10 mins. I believe most dealer will be fine with intake/exhaust, no warranty issue.

I don't know how well the Cobb intake performs. It wasn't available when I bought the Weapon-R. I don't have any complaints about mine. It smoothed out the throttle response and gave me a significant boost in hp and torque. I don't know how much.
I keep the engine cooling vents open and have a heat sheild between the intake and the engine. The only time engine air is an issue is when the car idles for several minutes without moving. Otherwise air flow through the compartment is pretty good.

FWIW, I raced a fellow RS owner who has a Weapon-R (I've got a GanzFlow) and I beat him. It was still a close race and from what he said I had a good launch, so take it at face value. Plus I love the sound of the GanzFlow with the right bumper vent removed.
