Is there any torque requirement for the filter and cover screws (items 7 and 9), or just go for reasonably tight?

This is an excellent guide, but I have a 2007 997-2 and there are no eight screws present to remove the air filter housing. Do you have a similar guide for replacing the filter on the 2007 997-2?

A 2007 997 is a 997-1.

excellent illustration.
congratulations.
Can we upgrade to a BMC or K/N filter ? Surely we can, but will they have the plastic extension to seat and secure the filter ?
May be worth a look into >
Any suggestions...
