What is expensive? I have no idea what the price is in the U.K. On the continent it cost about Euro 140.00.

Yes it can be checked with a PIWIS tester, menu - DME - actual values. A fault code is not always necessarily, a disturbing in the airflow results in a problem. This is not really a DIY job. Replace the air mass meter if necessarily.

Is there anything else I should check? or is it only likely to be the air mass meter?

Yep, it was the MAF....i tried re-booting by removing the earth but it made no difference, cleaned out the throttle body again did nothing, so then went for a drive to get i warm. I stopped and unplugged the connection and the engine died. It started fine, idled real smooth and pulled like it never has before...all the way to 7!!

I called my local bosch parts place "Tytherleigh Vehicle Electrics" and was quoted £172 plus VAT (17.5% for the Americans) which i didn't think was too bad......Rang the Porsche Dealer and they wanted £339 plus, so guess where im going on Monday!!!!

This forum has been very helpful in sorting out this problem so thats guys

HI All

Just to let everyone know I have had my car serviced and replaced the MAF sensor. The car goes like it should. Amazing that one sensor

could make such a difference.

Thanks to all of you that helped with this problem. A big thanks to Joe & Phil @ HP Motorsport, Hainault. These guys serviced the car for me, and made

my 911 run like a 911 should.
