the weapon-r i really like it. its nice on take off it emits a low real low growl like a v-8 and than becomes loud and really smooth powerful sound. You def feel a kick right when it hits 4000 rpms. Overall i say that its worth the investment. Anyways in 96 the hp goes back up but in 95 it was decreased to 125 but im not sure why.

you lose a little low-end torque im not sure why. Im hoping that with the shield you don't. But you gain everything back and the intake outperforms alot of CAI intakes so its up to you. Im hoping that with an exhaust and maybe headers that everything will even itself out on the dyno.

No not at all. The instructions are horrible but all you have to do is remove the stock one with the airbox and all that. Then you take the rubber hose off the stock one and put the weapon-r on. First you attatch the rubber piece that becomes bigger i think its 3" - 2 1/2" than you attach the pipe and connect the rubber hose to the nipple on the tube. Next take the 3"-3" and connect that to the filter. Make sure you put the hose clamps on though. Next take the long thin metal piece and mount it to one of the holes where the stock airbox was and bend it into shape. Make sure that you get it under one of the rings first though. Than connect the air sensor turn the key and let the car rev!

Just buy it offline somewhere. Its cheap enough so that a couple of dollars won't make much of a difference. On the weapon-r site its around 30 something.
