Default Weapon R race Header?

Weapon R Race header... What are your thoughts? Reviews? Pics?

I'm gonna get one soon for $100 from a friend. Its only been on a vehicle for 100 miles. I searched and couldn't find any reviews or installs on it.

i got the same deal from a friend back some time now, i didnt feel much of a power gain but it gives the engine a better sound i feel like. i took it off because the CEL came on and it was annoying for me and i just use my tc as a daily driver.

I got one with a HKS exhaust. It's raspy on 1st and 2nd gear around 3-4k rpm. Afterwards it has a nice deep tone to it.

I would recommend to wrap it with titanimum wrap as this header DOES get extremely hot and could burn the shielding foam underneath your hood.

I have the CEL eliminator from Weapon R and it still throws the error.. I need to get it look at again

If you still want performance without codes, check out our green header. Great sound tone, direct bolt on, and no CELs.

Also, dyno proven to add 6.5whp across the board on a stock car!

No problems so far, and I do have the eliminator on the second 02 sensor. Just beware that the car will be loud! If you're up for inspection soon, get something with a cat.

the header upgrades on the 2.5 engine are minimum increase.

you will be spending $600 on something with a 6.5 hp gain
$100 for a used weapon-r header you need to make sure it has cel eliminator.
add that with a tsudo header you may see a 10 hp increase.

go with takeda to get the most gain on the intake
