You'll need to remove the air box, very easy to do. Unclip MAF, undo clamps around intake connection, undo bolt holding air box by latch, wiggle a bit and it's out...

I’m curious - why make the change? I have a 997.1 GT3 and I would hate to think I’m missing out on something

I can’t even remember why I made the change in the first place. I may have read somewhere about better flow or something, but don’t think there was much difference if any
