HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Changing Position of Air Filter Intake

Post by rdanford on Tue May 16, 2017 3:32 pm

I'm considering changing the position of my air filter intake.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Currently it is a 90* elbow towards the driver side. I'm considering removing the hood latch and going with a straight shot under the nose panel. Will this effect my HP Tuners tune? Any advice or options would be great.

any time you change anything with your air intake on a mass air flow car you change how the maf reads. however, its not nearly as bad with your style of maf, and being in a straight section the change will be fairly small.

Mine is similar but extends further over to be behind the headlight and I've added a heat shield above the frame rail up to the hood. This acts as an airbox with a supply hose forward to a duct replacing the fog light. I didn't go forward under the header as that's the location of my oil cooler. On a chassis dyno, my engine produced the same power it did on the engine dyno at the rebuilder's shop. So I conclude that this intake isn't hurting it at all.

You can see that I cut out my hood latch and added pins. These work fine, and I'm yet to be "that guy" with the smashed windshield from his hood flying open on the track...

Rich your setup might be the route I go...just trying to create some room because I'm installing hydro brakes and need to install a PS pump. Thanks

This is the setup I'm running now. Wanted to keep the hood latch and lights. Never dynoed so don't know if I'm losing anything in the upper rpms. May have to click on the pic to see the whole thing.

fanatic, nice setup. Where's your MAF?

Here's a couple more recent pics of mine. I've added a ps pump, a heat shield and a hose to supply fresh air from a high pressure area in the bumper. Note that there's a lot of room because I don't have a headlight bar or hood latch.

I ran 3.5" all the way. 4" just wouldn't fit. I did have to notch and reweld one spot where the headlight arm rotates. The MAF is on the filter. I cut a section of the sheet metal out under the 8" long K&N air filter because it was to long.

Thanks for all the pics guys, super helpful. After looking thru too many pics I think I'm going to be removing the hood latch and using AeroCatch hood pins.
