Has anyone read a review/seen in use/knowon anyone who has had this intake? I am seriously considering it for my Rav, followed by a heat shield of some sort (really Mohit, I want the specs to build one, or someplace to buy it state side.)

is the weapon r intake just a pipe with an open pod filter?
if it is its only gonna give a good sound with a loss in performance and fuel consumption.
thats why i modded my ebay intake into a cold air intake:

Mohit, check out http://www.weapon-r.com for details. It looks impressive, and it can attach to their Ram Air attachment if need be. I though about doing a whole CAI by getting the Weapon-R Dragon intake, the cover for it, and the Ram Air attachment. Probly cost more than yours, but I think it would be worth it. Guess if I do that I wouldn't have to figure out where to get a heat shield, now would I?

Actually the Apexi has one of the best filters, it was even dyno proven for the best gains over many other filters...

I let you know :twisted: I'm about to order both the intake and the ram-air (aka semi-CAI conversion) kit in about 3-4 weeks, so I'll let you know how it is after I get it installed...

Also, id love to see the plans on the heat shield... even with the ram-air kit, the filter is still exposed to the heat in the engine bay.

But see, the smoothness of the inside of the apexi filter really wouldnt make any difference on a short ram intake, especially not the RAV4's intake. Not only is it short ram, but it has too many bends in too short of a distance for it to take any effect.

In theory, thats why the weapon-r would be the better pick for short ram intakes because of its twin tube desgin, which has been proven to have a less turbulent and faster intake charge than a normal short-ram intake.

Drifter, I was just wondering if you have gotten this and had it installed yet. My curiosity has been overwhelming, and I have almost broken down and bought it, twice....... :cry:

BLAH! bunch of stuff has come up that I have to tak care of first, so all my planned mods have been pushed back untill I can get teh RAV repaired...

Took it to the dealership for a look over for any problems, way more than I expected.... enough that things could get serious if I dont fix em. Sorry to get your hopes up, man... but I will get to it eventually!
