  1. You would've gotten a CEL for the MAF regardless of de-snork or not (the snork is just a muffler and has little bearing unless you have an aftermarket intake). Sounds like MAF might be on it's way out. Clean it up and see if it'll go away or just un-plug it and reset the CEL to see if it's truly bad or not. If it's bad, just order a new one online for $200 or less. It's a 5 min DIY to replace. Good luck and enjoy the sound! That's what I thought-I also recently added a K&N filter so that may be the culprit here. MAFS seem to have a shorter life expectancy here in Southern California for some reason ( air quality?) but this car has only 23k on it. I'll clean and pray! Thanks.
  2. means you pulled out the intake's sound muffler on a 986. makes the engine sound much more aggressive especially at 4K RPMs and higher. Negligible sound increase at idle. Takes less than 10 min to do Here's a link to one set of instructions: http://www.ppbb.com/boards/ppbbphp/showthr...&sb=&o= I'm sure others can be found in the archives here. It's really only for the 986 as w/ the 987 it's been reported (unofficially) your mileage will be dramatically reduced. Thanks for the Quick Reply-I'll give it a try this weekend. I made the change-love the sound difference but it triggered a Check engine light for my MAFS. I will clean it again and re-set. Thanks for sending the file with photos-very helpful.

  4. I keep seeing that others have "desnorkeled " their Boxster. What does this mean and where can I read about it?
  5. Andy-looking forward to the Amp and head unit discussion-Thanks for taking the time!
