AAAH, Yes the GT3 MAF tube is bigger. What is a BMC filter? Thanks!!!
Thanks, But I am using my stock 997s MAF. I just wanted to DIY a free flowing induction system. I have a HKS filter and just needed a tube to mount the 997s MAF. The GT3 tube is just a plastic tube that allowed me to install the 997s MAF and mount the HKS air filter. I was just wondering why it runs slower and feels rich.
Hello Loren, I used my MAF, that I plugged into the GT3 MAF tube from FVD. The only diff that I saw was that the unlike the stock 997-1S MAF tube, the GT3 MAF tube has the MAF positioned a little higher so it isn't as exposed to the air stream as the stock tube that unfortunately is molded in with the airbox. Could this be the cause of the bad metering? Is the GT3 MAF longer than the S MAF?
JMA -997 posted a topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Hello again!!! I was trying to fabricate a cold air intake using an HKS filter. I used a MAF tube from a buddy with a GT3. It is slightly larger. However, the plastic mesh screen was removed. I put everything together and started the car up. Idling was not too bad but a little rough. I tried running it and it ran slow like the car was so rich. My question is this, does the screen mesh make a big difference??? I know its there for a reason and I was told that it's only there for protection... Anyonne have ideas????? :renntech:

JMA -997 posted a topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Hello guys. How do you remove the MAF on a 997 S. The Torx screws holding it in place have a thin rod tha prevents you from using normal torx wrenches. You need one with a hole sto the rod willgo thru. Is this a special tool or can this be bought at a tool supply shop? Thanks

JMA -997 replied to JMA -997's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Is there a site I can go to to check out the battery sizes???
JMA -997 replied to JMA -997's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Thanks Loren! What would be the best route to make 380+ hp? The X51 package is quite expensive :thankyou: :renntech:
JMA -997 posted a topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Hello to ALL!!! I am a little confused on the power rating of the 997S 3.8L. Some say 355 hp while others say 385 hp. I have an '06 997 s with a sports chrono package. How can you tell which is which???
JMA -997 replied to JMA -997's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Thanks JFP! I had a sealed odysee battery in my '08 STi. It was really small to fit around the intercooler piping for the front mount intercooler. Had no issues and at full load gave out 13.7 volts. It was very light as well. I was never a fan of large batteries and thought I could put a smaller unit in the Porsche. I asked the local dealer here in the Philippines and their reply did not make much sense. Anyway, your suggestion sounds good. I just need to find the local distributor of the optima here in my neck of the woods...
