Hi

I'm looking at buying a new MAF for my 2000 2.7 Boxster and on pulling the old unit I've noted the part numbers as follows:

Bosch - 0 28 218 055; Porsche - 986.606.125.00.

A seller on Ebay (UK) is selling replacement MAF's for reasonable price and includes the following statement on his ad:

"Bosch 0280 218 055 For models with M620 e-accelerator, for original 99660612400 or updated 98660612501 Porsche units. Please double check your part number and comaptibility before the purchase."

Obviously the Bosch p/n is identical but the Porsche p/n is suffixed 01 instead of 00 - does this have any bearing on the MAF working correctly or not or is it just Porsche listing an updated p/n?

If your car already had the 986.606.125.00 then the 986.606.125.01 will also work fine as your DME has already been updated.

Do not use 986.606.124.00.

Thanks for the prompt answer Loren, I thought it would be ok but thought I'd best ask first.

Cheers mate.

Ordered one at a very reasonable £76.46 incl delivery ($116)

Pleasure... you can buy me a beer next time you're in town :D

Hairy,

Did u try cleaning it? There are sprays (mostly alcohol) that u can get at the autoparts stores that you can use to clean the electrode in the MAF.

Might save u some more $$.

I have cleaned the old MAF 3 or 4 times (including when I pulled it at the weekend to double-check the part number. It helps briefly but it struggled through the emission test a couple of weeks ago and doesn't feel like it's fuelling correctly. For 76 quid it's not worth the hassle.

Arrived (and fitted) today. Took the opportunity to clean the throttle body, the pipes between the inlet manifolds and knock some dust out of the air filter element. Bit hesitant at 2000 and 5500 rpm to start with but went for a 15 mile run to settle it in and all's good with the world! :jump:
