GT4 that is a really good read, it's the second time I have read it, and have only just realised that the aluminium cap in the design tek kit is duel purpose and if you leave the HHR box in its a cap and if you remove the HHR box its a bung, have you ever done the 997.1 air box as unlike the 996 the HHR box seems to be welded or glued in place and not just held with screws so it looks like a dremel job unless you know an easier way.

It is bonded in.

So get your saw out!

You could always "backdate" your 997: the 996 airbox fits!

(ie buy a cheap breaker part for the HHR mod, and return to stock for resale)

Virgin Media stole all my webspace images (along with every other domestic user)

So the initial post instructions may be a bit opaque without photos.

The 1 1/2" straight connector needs to be one end threaded and the other solvent fit, with a flange base to the threaded section.



Whilst the airbox lid is off, pop a poly washer on the threaded straight connector, push the threaded end from the OUTSIDE (topside) of the airbox in. Add another poly washer to the threaded end now INSIDE (underneath) the airbox lid and screw the nut tight.

With the nut ones side and the straight connector flange the other, the two poly washers should now clamp the airbox aperture airtight.

Now force the socket plug into the INSIDE threaded part of the straight tank connector.

That way, it can't get into the y-pipe as it can only exit into the airbox, if it did pop off.

Refit filter, airbox lid and airbox etc back into car

Jubilee clip the y-pipe onto the unthreaded stem of the straight connector protruding from the airbox lid.

NB: the threaded end of the tank connector (and hence washers) is 1.5", the solvent fit end is 40mm (and hence that is also the spec of the socket plug)

So if searching for the tank connector and fittings, they may be specified either way.

I'd hope so as they charge £190 for the kit.

Floor

I thought they were taking the piss @ £90 (to be fair, that was 2008 and pre-Brexit vote)

Bought a used Schnell CAI tube @ £25 and the couple of quid plumbing bits listed above

It would be less obtrusive in the original satin black plastic!

Agreed, I'm looking at a few different options for my CAI mod.

I was thinking something like this might work for the blanking plug?

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/121987222787?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&var=420980082402&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

They supply various sizes. What diameter in mm is the small tube?

Also, re the silicone intake hose I have found:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORGE-Silicone-Intake-Hose-for-Porsche-996-1998-2002-FMINDPO5-BLACK/141782797687?_trksid=p2045573.c100033.m2042&_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D43781%26meid%3D249aae6f0c0147d39a8015fd5dcfbf5e%26pid%3D100033%26rk%3D7%26rkt%3D8%26sd%3D351803086358

Although states '996 Turbo' - is this the same fit as N/A?

P.S. I know you can get them cheaper but that would involve delay waiting for it to come from China or the US. I'd rather just get one now for a few quid more...
