    GT3 air filters and single mass flywheel

    Is there an advantage to going to a cone style air filter on the GT3 like the one on the GT3R.

    Also, is there a difference in performane when using the single mass flywheel?

    RR,

    Have you found your red gauges yet?

    I'd also be interested in replacing mine.

    Here is a nice photo of it on a GT3.

    Where did you find that pic?
    I am having a real hard time finding red dials.
    Can you let me know where they came from?

    Re: GT3 air filters and single mass flywheel

    Two problems with trying to convert to the cone filter, if you mean like the Cup cars use. First, there's no MAF connection on the cone filter so you've got problems with the DME right away. Second, you'll lose performance with the cone filter. I know some racers who are retrofitting the GT3 street car filter housing onto their race cars. Why? The street car filter has more surface area and therefore flows more air volume than the cone filter. Also, the cone filter sucks hot air out of the engine compartment, whereas the street car filter pulls air out of the deck lid at much lower temperature. Cooler air = more HP. The benefits of the street filter have been shown on the dyno and on the track via a Motec.

    The single mass flywheel can be retrofit but you need to consider the issues if you do it. The revs fall off more quickly when you clutch in, so rev matching on downshift is a little trickier. On my Cup car I sometimes have to double blip the throttle to keep the revs up when shifting. Also, the single mass clutch will be a lot noisier for the street.

    what about the air filter or, more precisely, the "Staudrucksammler" (whatever that is called in english...) that is used in the gt3 rs? Could that be an option?

    RR4,

    I found it on the Rennlist forum.

    "Also, is there a difference in performane when using the single mass flywheel? "

    i just ordered this one and will let you know:

    EVO Bullet Flywheel and Sachs sport Clutch Kit Upgrade LEVEL 2 (STREET) : This level 2 upgrade contains all of the level 1 system and incorporates solid billet flywheel. The OEM 28 LB. dual mass flywheel is replaced with this solid 12 lb. CNC Machined aluminum and steel flywheel. The weight reduction allows the motor to rev quicker for better acceleration and incredible throttle response. This stronger clutch kit will support any modified Boxster. Offers 100% daily drive ability with little increase in clutch pedal effort. Smooth engagement for everyday use.

    NOTE: There is no problems with engine stalling associated with the installation of this clutch system

    Staudrucksammler
    "Stagnation pressure collecting tank"?

    Can you get silver or white gauges aftermarket?
