porsche boxter cold air intake --is it worth it

Recommended Posts

The performance air filter will have less resistance , therefore there is a slight improvement in throttle response. Allegedly there is also a few Hp gain at the top of the power range, but don't expect this to make any real world difference on the road , in terms of acceleration or top end speed. More likely you will find you use more fuel as a result of getting the air in quicker when you accelerate. They do make an improvement in intake noise , but without a chip re tune little else benefit.

I am going to have to agree. Although the colder air is technically better for combustion...you will likely feel very little to none. It might sound different being less restrictive. The only real way to know is to do it and see if you feel or hear a change. Without remapping the computer, it is still going to control the MAF and the flange to make the fuel to air mixture the same.

The other thing to think about is that the cold air intake likely has an oiled filter that may adversely affect the operation of your MAF, causing it to become dirty and possibly destroyed. Periodic cleaning can help this issue.
