    GT3 MY 2003

    Did anybody fitted the car with Cup air filter? If yes can I get a pic to see how it has been installed?

    Thanks

    Ciao Stefano

    I suggest you the installation of this

    I'd suggest seeing some documented proof any alternative to the stock air filter actually improves performance. The Cup filter might make for better sound but even some Cup cars are using the street air filter housing in an effort to get cooler air into the motor on slower turns. And it supposedly isn't a simple matter to use the Cup filter on the street GT3 as there's no provision for the MAF sensor on the Cup filter mount.

    Re: GT3 MY 2003

    Hi Steve and thanks for the reply. I do use the car for track days only and tested car with Cup filter weeks ago. The sound is amazing......

    Cheers

    I had a cup filter on my Mk 1 GT3 for a while. The sound was great on the road but I found it too harsh on the track where you spend almost all the time in the upper rev ranges. I also found that with the cup filter I was about 4mph slower at the end of Hangar Straight at Silverstone on a warm day than I was with the standard filter.

    Steve, unlike cup car, street GT3 uses ducting kit and bracket to fit cone below air intake in engine cover, with existing MAF as in pic above.

    Fitting and removing are 10 minute diy jobs. But when fitting cup filter you need to make sure the rubber cone mounts for the original are secure (or removed) to avoid loosing them.

    Looks and sounds good but no performance enhancement, at least not without modified exhaust and EMU.

    Robin, That's the point I was trying to make, the factory air filter is pretty efficient and there isn't likely to be any HP improvement just from changing it to an aftermarket one.

    My reference to the Cup air filter not working was assuming GT3SM wanted the actual air filter mounting assembly from the GT3 Cup car which I understand won't work on the street GT3 as it lacks the MAF sensor mounting.
