Alex,

On my single 997.1 model I have had and still have a rubbing issue on the fan. I have had to cut the little frame pieces from the fan to keep it from marking up my CF tube. I adjusted the height and the angle as to where it hooks up, but now it sits low in the engine bay, which is not bad because of "hot" air behind the heat shield, but then the filter is rubbing the bottom of the engine bay and leaves marks from it rubbing. Will the dual intake address these issues or is there something I did wrong with the install?

I'm looking forward to the dual intake and possible gains if any. I love the sound I get out of mine now, but with a dual...wow! I'm also safe to assume that you will have a template for the cutting of the second hole?

Will a new ECU tune be necessary due to possible increase airflow, or is that a question for Softronic?

Thanks!!

I thought you guys were working on an enclosed air intake like the X51 airbox. This type of intake is already available from eurocupgt.com like posted on a previous post. Problem with these intake are hot air and water falling right onto the filters..

Jam, I just received an email from Porsche Shop in the UK about their intake. They are claiming 25bhp gain....seems a lot for just the intake. I asked for Dyno....but that question was not addressed. Trying to get total price shipped here so still waiting. They initially told me $ 144.00 shipped, but if that is the total price with freight....Thats a steal....just hope it really is CF.

If you're referring to the EuroCupGT one mentioned earlier, it comes to approx $525 delivered to the US.

FABSPEED-----you need to enclose this system into an X51 or RS 4.0 variant enclosure.

Everyone following this thread from day 1 has been anticipating the release of boxed double filtration intake.







This open air double filtration unit will do nothing more than increase throttle intake noise and will do nothing to prevent heat soak entering the intake.

I think was their solution. So far no pics of this optional kit yet.

exactly!
I'm surprised that none of the body shops like GT Racing or MA Shaw, etc, are not copying the X51 version. If they can copy body panels, why not the X51 airbox? I don't even need Carbon Fiber, although it would be nice. Just something that wouldn't melt!

That's actually a hell of an idea if it would actually work?

It will come out when there is enough demand for a guaranteed return on investment to the manufacturer. So, if you want to expedite the manufacturing process, put together a prepaid advance order for 1000 units and they will have them out for you next month. That's how manufacturing works.

I'm with you Joel. I think the sealed air box in CF would be sweet. Although it will be expensive!! I've posted about the lack of low end power with the Fabspeed CAI. No cold air with this set up as too much warm air from the engine gets in. The sound is amazing....but I really prefer the quick response and low end torque of the stock box. So it looks like I'm going back to stock at next oil change.

Even with another hole cut in the deck lid, taller CF "Heat Shield" I truly don't believe it will compare to the sealed box. The dyno numbers seem to show added power, but the air is pumped into the car so it can breath while on the dyno and the run is not for an extended period of time to allow for real heat to get into the engine compartment and to counter what true cold air verses hot air.

Did the run have the deck lid open during the run? What was the ambient temp of the room when running? On hot summer days the engine gets real hot, so hot that the fans run for a while after parking in my garage due to the heat. There is no way the Fabspeed CAI can stop that heat from getting into the engine.

I get complements on the set up and look CF makes the car look good...Right Joel? LOL
