Hi
I've got the Fab Speed conversion which might be better than the K&N. I was told by Porscheshop who sell both that the Fab Speed will give you a bit more. ONE IMPORTANT LESSON I'VE LEARNED, do not, DO NOT use oiled filters, the oil contaminates the MAF, and up pops the Orange Engine Check Light!!!!! Mad
Regards Big Bob


A bit extreme Bob, I'd definitely recommend a BMC F1 panel.....guess what I bought it from Porscheshop, although the 10 minute wait for service was shocking!

Roonster - I think the tube you are referring to is either the original airscoop - which should still be in situ btw, or the smaller connection (breather) pipe that is unique to tip's that connected near the top of the original air filter box, this should also still be in place but you will have had to modify the 'fat' pipe with K&N written on it on the induction kit to incorporate it.

Second one? They are washable and have a lifetime warranty! Just wash, re-oil, wrap in newspaper and leave in a warm room overnight.

It shows a small pipe that comes off the big pipe on the original system, you are then meant to drill a hole in the big new k&n one using bits provided, but mine did not have any pipe coming off the original ???

Completely confused by the whole topic now Question

I essentially want the noise and any added power is just a bonus Embarassed

Do I go K&N induction (some cheap deals out of the US).

A cold air induction kit and filter http://www.vertexauto.com/ShowItem/197891%20Porsche%20996%20997%20Cold%20Air%20Intake%20Inhaler%20-%20Schnell.aspx

Airbox mod and plug?

just replaced my bmc panel filter with k+n 57i kit
much better noise and feels like it pulls just that wee bit harder up top
fairly straight forward to fit, basic tools will get the job done but you will need a drill for a couple of bits

got mine through vivid racing from this site, just do a quick search, $375 delivered and it was here in about 4 days

happy enough with it, will certinally give you noise you want and a touch more power, but not the 23 bhp k+n claim!!!

just get it done, you know you want to Very Happy

Anybody know realistically what affect this has on MPG for a 98 C2 3.4, roughly? I get pretty appaling fuel consumption around London as is (sadly where i spend 80% of time driving it) :cry:

haven't noticed any real difference in fuel consumption tbh, but never really checked what i was getting before

just back from a 650 mile round trip on the motorway and averaged about 31 mpg!!, which i thought was pretty bloody good, sitting about 80-85 whole journey

hope this helps

Andy

I put (well Dan did) an EVO Motorsport cone filter on my car and did enjoy the slight extra bark under load. It was claimed it would give an extra 15bhp although not too sure. It did seem a little sharper and then I did the other stuff which made it a little silly Laughing Will get somepics posted up.
