Yes.

And I've never officially had an OPC filter change, as it has almost from day one had a K&N panel (which I hoovered, and hence airbox too, on the fitment anniversary).

It has a nice new paper filter now though.

OPC will clean out you rads every service too!

A couple of great reasons to have you car serviced every year, over and above the mechanical check over it gets and new oil etc.

Really don't get the sense in TWO year servicing Confused

Thanks for that GT4. Considering the car is generally garaged and ive only done 3k since the service Im guessing they didn't bother. I reckon Parr will be getting my monies from now on... nooo

I know they Hoover it at the service as I always check the K&N is still in there!

(on a Golf I had once, many years ago, some clueless techy threw it away!)

Chaps - I now have the parts for this (induction hose, cap + K&N filter) albeit they turned up wthout jubilee clips? Can I re-use the ones that are already there re the OE induction hose?

The plastic "bung" that you got from a plumbing shop - can I get by without that & just use the "cap" that comes with the induction hose or should I get the bung too?

Cheers, TX.

The kits expect you to use the current (previous) Jubilee clips.

The kits expect you to use the cap (that is why they include it!).

The HHR removal is just something nice to have (and it is this that requires the plumbing bits).

Got the filter panel & CAI done today, sounds much better! Still need to do the resonator thingy albeit the plumbing bits look v ugly, any other options to plug the hole that's left?

Yes, see that picture with the black plastic cap and jubillee clip, that cap fits on the top of the white sanitaryware!

No one will ever know

Wow, resurection!

I seriously wouldn't bother - I tried it on mine once when I was bored; no noticeable difference in engine sound and certainly no noticeable change in throttle response.

I think all it does is make the engine bay look 'played' with. If I went to see a 911 with 1990's esq looking samco hose and plumbers bits I would walk for sure.


Cheers,

1998 Porsche 996 Carrera 2

PostPosted: Mon Dec 24, 2012 5:41 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

Just bought one, fitting it now before Christmas Eve "stuff" starts!

Does it affect Fuel Consumption?

Does it increase BHP at all?

Excited to see what the change is.

I am keeping the standard Air Filter for the moment til I get around to getting a K&N one, hope thats ok.

Thanks for the write up!

ALSO - What is the best Air Filter when I do get one - Design Tek or K&N? Design Tek cheaper at £40, is this false economy or anything?

Happy Christmas!!

Kind regards

Edward

No (unless you include you right foot, in which case yes).

No. Just nicer noise.

I like K&N, but there is little in it and in fact a brand new OEM paper filter is probably just as good, but almost like Dyson vs Hoover, the paper filter soon blocks and reduces airflow. Just remember to wick the surplus oil out of any oiled cloth filter by wrapping tightly in newspaper or kitchen paper with book etc to press down overnight.

Happy Christmas!!

Kind regards

Edward

Has nobody tried to make this tube themselves rather than paying £70-90 for a bit of silicone hose?

I'm interested to try it but think ill have a go at a DIY!

If it as been done before, could someone give me the diameters of the hose? Cheers!!

Is it OK to remove the HHR and block the hole with aforementioned plumbing parts but still keep the original CAI tube with spur?
The spur would obviously have to be jubilee clipped on top of the plumbing parts to prevent air intake.

Is the above sensible or do I need to have a smoothed CAI tube as well to prevent a loss of power considering that the spur is now redundant?

I'm after a little more intake noise for minimal outlay.
(£3.20 at local plumbers)

Well I've achieved a little more induction noise and increased the useful air filter area but want to know whether using the original CAI hose with a blocked off HHR instead of a hose without the spur causes a reduction in power or any other detrimental effect? (Due to airflow disruption with the now unused spur)

I don't fancy spending £60+ on a 'performance' CAI replacement unless necessary, what does it offer other than its looks?

It's slightly slippier finish inside (and no spur turbulence)

After I played with the £20 Schnell CAI I bought off eBay, I decided to go down the stealth route and as 911munKy enquired, retained the HHR deletion and plumbing parts, but hid under a jubilee-clipped spur.

Getting really cheap now !

£9.50 for plain black


http://www.ramair-filters.co.uk/shop/automotive/universal-silicone-automotive/45-degree-elbow-automotive/45-degree-elbow-bend-black-universal-silicone-hose-pipe-sizes/

It's the 5mm / 4 ply stuff which seems to be same spec that all the other CAI options are eh!

Can anyone tell me the internal diameter?


I am thinking hose only, leave the paper filter for now (mine is brand new as just serviced)

Possibly find a bung, or do plumbing Laughing

Check this out for an amusing cheap solution to the bung:
