Big Air for the Boxster!

Recommended Posts

Passing these winter months doing an air intake and throttle body modification to my Boxster S! I did the base dyno run and the results were pleasing. I'm currently doing the mod and documenting it. We'll see if it's all worth while at the end with the final dyno run!
If you would like to see what I am up to, here's the YouTube link:

Hi there

Great video, really enjoyed it and looking forward to the next one's!

I did the plenum/throttle body upgrade on my 986s and was very pleased with the results ?

I wasn't brave enough for the 987 airbox swap though ?

Thanks! I've been active for several years on the 986 Forum but thought that I might drop in here. My forum name is supposed to be NewArt , and is so on the other forums. Here, it gained an H, becoming Newhart! I guess someone was a fan of the TV show. ;)

Was the result not worthwhile?

Oh yes!!  But needed a re map to make the most, and the 987 Airbox job is somewhat of a challenge on bare skin and knuckles, so yes I've done it would I do it for somebody else no ....unless the price was right of course !!

One bag of Maltesers and a lucky-dip of early-90s DVDs?

 

Cheers, Baggers.

Hi Newhart,how did you manage to get the black pipe(hose)to pass through the manifold when doing the 987 air box? Mine doesnt want to be pushed through so do you have to remove the manifold on the other side in order to remove this pipe.I have the 986 box out and what a job that was.Also did the maf box get in the way underneath due to the bulky part sticking down.Thanks Keith.

As it's an old thread best to tag him @Newhart in case he doesn't see your post.

The 987 box needs modification as shown in the video.  The aos tube can be brittle so be careful. It may be clipped to the oil filler tube in the middle. There is also a valve/tube attached to the underside of the intake manifold. If you go as far as removing the oil cooler,  drop the coolant level beforehand and be prepared for a flood.
