    Is there an aftermarket Carbon Fiber TT airbox?

    Is there an aftermarket carbon fiber airbox for the Turbo available yet?

    I'm interested in giving the engine compartment more bling.

    Try this link to Champion Motor Works, Werks One.
    http://www.championmotorsport.com/werks1/. I have seen it in person and is just what you are describing.

    How many h.p. is this worth?? Try this link, they claim 40 h.p.

    True but it gets you more than a Carbon Fiber air box

    Has anyone given this a try? Sounds interesting.

    It doesn't look like they have printed H.P. results yet for the 997 Turbo but says 30-35 for the 996 Turbo.

    I'm skeptical. But it sure sounds tempting. Exhaust 20HP & plenum another 30? So for $5k you could have same H.P as a GT2. Dun no, 30 H.P. for a plenum doesn't sound realistic.

    MMD- Werks would be the airbox I'd go w/ but I think TechArt has a CF airbox that resembles the stock box. Looks like the GT2's CF box.

    $650 is not bad for that at all. Doesn't have the CF pieces that attach to the lid like the Werks box but it's almost $3000 LESS than the Werks.

    I went to their shop in Costa Mesa, they were installing this on several cars. I might get mine done also. I talked to Porsche and it will not void the warranty unless they can link it to the problem addressed by the owner of the car.

    Thanks Guys,

    Looks like I'm sooooo hung upon fashion that if I want any CF bling for the engine air box I will have to buy a Porsche unit. Gotta have that VTG Badge! VTG is what makes these cars possible.

    You will not notice any changes in the looks with the plenum, it looks as if it was there all along, the VTG box stays as is, that's why I like it .

    I agree - the VTG badge says more to me than GMG or Werks...but I do like the colored air ducts I've seen on TechArt or some other tuner's car - they were red. Anyone know where you can get those?

    I'd love to know if they can provide a printed dyno result.

    "This simple bolt-on plenum upgrade provides dyno proven increases in both power and torque throughout the entire rev range."

    huh. Just Googled it and came across this thread on 6-speed:

    Looks like it's from a modded car but those are huge gains for $1000.

    That was my 1st reaction too but the more I look into it the more it appears like there are nice gains. Maybe the best increase in hp/tq for the money. I'm going to keep digging but so far unlike the airbox I was interested in the plenum's appear to make real additional power.

    Why do you have any info. to the contrary?

    Re: Is there an aftermarket Carbon Fiber TT airbo

    No matter what and whether the car is tuned or not, there is some gain even if it's less than 40, say even 15 H.P. for $1000 you can't go wrong. Any decent exhaust will cost at least $4K+ and migh get you 25 H.P.?
