    Air Filters

    Hi 

    Anyone tried any aftermarket air filters in their 997.1 C2S? I have a Cargraphic Exhaust and was told putting an aftermarket air filter like K&N (model number 33-2786 ) it would provide a little more induction noise. 

    Anyone got any other suggestions for air filters?

     


    Re: Air Filters

    I has one on my 997.1 C4S .

    Maybe it made a very little bit more induction noise, but it was barely noticeable , specially from the inside.

    it was just a nice feeling knowing I had one smiley

    Hi Gnil

    Yeah - that is what I suspected. I think i will buy a K&N air filter. It is quite a cheap item, and it will certainly increase air flow, but as you suggest, only by a very small amount. 

    Thanks!

    apart from a tiny bit more intake noise, there wont be any in your pants difference....  but a cheap mod nevertheless..

    Yes, that "suction" noise is slightly louder, can be nice on some cars, a cheap mod but don't expect any power gains.

    Just be careful with the warranty though, Porsche may or may not like the airfilter change, it depends on your dealer if he reports it (in the case of an engine problem) or not. It is however a mod nobody can really track, so you should be fine.

    Interesting, commentary Re K&N filters.

     

    I'm not a believer in K&N or any other of these types of NON OEM filters........

    Re: Air Filters

    Very interesting. Thanks guys. I think i might save my dollars and just stick with the stock air filter.

    I do not agree on all points with that article, K&N filters are not a scam, there are other sport airfilter manufacturers too and their filters are used especially for tuned/modded cars where more air flow is essential for their kits to work within specs. I just don't think they provide stock cars with more power or any fuel consumption advantages but thats a completely different story.
