I'm thinking about getting rid of my AEM cold air intake and getting a Weapon*R short ram. Anyone have this intake. It's called the Dragon Intake. Commnets welcomed.

There a few reasons why I want to change it out. I'm more concerned with throttle response than higher horsepower numbers. The unit doesn't fit exactly right in my engine bay. I have no inner fender liner so the filter gets really dirty quick. Just a lot of small reasons like these. I've thought about it for a while and came up with this decision.

No. I have the AEM Cold Air Intake w/ bypass that is placed in the passenger fender well. I haven't totally decided which add on system I will get with the Weapon*R Dragon yet. I may get the Ram Air unit or the Ice Box unit. I have to research the two a bit more and ask a couple of questions to the distributors before I can decide. I will definitely let you guys know how I like the new system when I get it.

eh, why get a weapon r when you can opt for something that is a little bit more "better"

your aem setup with the bypass isn't bad, personally i think it's downgrading to go to a weapon r setup.

save up and look for mugen, j's racing, comptech, etc

Ok, then I guess my next question would be "If you were going to buy a short ram intake, what would you buy?"

PS- The Weapon*R has a setup that is a lot like the Comptech Icebox. That was probably the route I was going to go.

The Icebox has great throttle response (short tube) and cold air benefits... all you miss out on is the look/sound of a typical open intake.

Most of the SRI's are virtually the same. I guess just go for AEM or whatever, really doesn't matter much. Injen is actually pretty good but I think appearance-wise they look kinda shitty.

yeah, injen intakes look weird. but come to think of it, it's made by one of the engineers that left AEM to create Injen lol

just cut your cai. why would you need to buy a shorty? you already bought the bypass, so that means your tube's already cut.

The bypass directions said to cut it kinda close to the throttle body. It would be a really short ram system, but not as short as the Neuspeed P-Flow. Plus, I don't like the way the AEM mates up to the throttle body..... it's hard to explain.

you mean the way it bottlenecks? wouldn't that be good velocity stack considering you drive a hi revving motor? i don't know, i could be wrong.

y spend sooo much money on intake? if your looking for a short ram, just take off the too of your stock air box and run it with a k&n filter, you'll have both a short ram with heat shield. :)


imma poor person, i find ways to do good DiY

I have enough money right now, at the beginning of every semester i get a loan check. I set aside a piece of mioney for mods......

Also, It doesn't bottleneck; it's kinda weird what it does. Just take my word for it doesn't line up how I would like it.
