white996 replied to mdillian3690's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I have the same K&N intake as well and it has cause huge problem. I was in Manhattan in the lower east side and as the lights turned green I accelerate in first gear and rev to about 4000 RPM, the car stalled while moving about 30 mph. Luckly I was able to pulled the car to the side and try to restart again. The car starts fine but each time the RPM needle went down under 1000 the car stall again. I was stuck for over 30 min. not knowing what to do. I finally drove to the nearest porsche dealer by consistantly reving the car above 1000 RPM in gear and using the hand break to slow down and stop (In New YOrk city!!!!) finally got to The Manhattan motor sport on 27th and 11th ave, which they service and sales Porsche, Bently, Roys, Lamborginis and other exotic car was nice enough to take my right in. After the dianostic they told me that it was caused by the oil from the K&N filter got sucked into the intake and messed up the MAF sensor. Well, little that I know, the bill came out to be $434 for the MAF sensor, 2 Hour labor minimum at $160 an hour with 8.375% tax came to be $817.14 Now, there is a new MAF sensor and no CEL, but they did not clean or suck out the oil in the filter. I wonder when the car will act up again. It was a real nightmare!
