Has anyone used the weapon-R Intake manifold

Hey guys I was looking around on eBay earlier and stumbled upon a weapon-R intake manifold boasting 15-30 hp gains, so naturally it got me thinking if it was legit and if anyone has actually used it on our mk3 foci. I'm gonna attach the link to it in hopes of someone being able to shed some light on it and whether it would actually do something for our cars

MkII and MkIII don't use the same engines.

Only the exh. manifold happens to almost fit right. (well enough to use)

Awesome thanks, was about to pull the trigger but wasn't sure if it would even work. Could it really increase hp that much, say if I modified the flanges?

That's similar in function to the Cosworth intake, did you see what Tom posted today on the Mods needed to use that one?

N/A gains are at high RPM only, and need supporting mods like cams/header to match.

Nope I missed it, could you link that? Really looking to do something crazy to the car, I have a turbo laying around my shop that I'm dying to throw on but wondering if modifying it to make it work would even be worth it.

Linked in prev. post already.

Custom build turbo setup to fit one you happen to have is a LOT of work.

You can read the posts here on Tom's Custom Kit, tried all existing turbo exh. manifolds without finding a good fitment with the turbo/engine compartment so went custom and is waiting for a custom cast version of that.
