WR Secret Weapon Intake Dyno Tested..

We finished the Intake system today.
Tried a Cold Air config, The car didnt like it much, the intake tube was too long.
We did a Medium lengthed intake system, the car liked it better.
Then we finally did a Short Ram intake and the car totally liked it.

Here are the dyno results and Video's for your enjoyment.

Looks and sounds good. Can't wait to pick it up. Too bad about the header. I would have preferred that over the intake. Guess I'll take what I can get. lol I have first dibs on the next header test.

PM for details..

The Cold air only yielded like 3 Horsepower, my experience tells me that the tubing length is too long for this small engine. It takes too long and takes too much effort for this engine to take in air with a cold air. It was much much hapier with a short ram intake and right behind the headlight. We have a ram air kit that we can add to this kit also.. Which reminds me, there is a nice hole in the bumper to mount the scopp for the ram air kit. NICE....

What kind of filter are you using for the short ram intake? Would this type of intake hurt fuel economy, and if so, to what degree?

I'm a little confused now... How come TRD and AEM provide CAI's if a short tube will perform better?? I believe AEM CAI claims about 5HP gains....

I supposed also that the short intake set up will be much less expensive than the overpriced AEM and TDR, right?

When can we expect the intake and header to be available?? Would you offered a combo?? That would be nice!

I don't think that a longer tube will create any problems.

Look my CAI, which is pretty long

I don't think it's a matter of creating problems, I think it's more like, what works best for this motor. This is the case for most performance mods. Each mod is going to net a different gain depending on the application. I do agree with CASTREX though, seems a little odd that TRD and AEM have CAIs claiming up to five. They do say up to five though so maybe they are really pulling closer to 2 or 3. Beats me without a dyno pull using either of those intakes. What is the approximate RWH rating for the numbers you got Leo? Or I guess Front Wheel Horsepower (FWH)...

Thumbs up Just got the car back...

I drove it back from South San Francisco over McClaren Park. The intake makes a very nice difference over stock. I didn't think I would really feel that much extra power considering intake mods I've done on previous cars. The low end really feels stronger and the motor pulls better and revs faster and smoother all the way to red line. Plus the sound around 4000 and up is oh so sweet. Now I know what all you guys with the CAIs have been talking about. I can already see my gas mileage headed to the toilet based on wanting to hear that sweet sound over and over again. Hey Leo, I suggest you sign up as a sponsored vendor. This thing will sell itself.

Sorry for Hijacking the thread but I have tried several times contacting your company this year about selling your products in Cyprus. I have sent 2 Fax & 3 emails, but not received any replies. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Please contact me on

Hey Leo do you already have a price for the intake???

How fast can I get it?

If is priced below AEM's CAI I would definitively buy one.
