• Fabspeed launches 1997-2004 Porsche 986 Boxster Competition Air Intake System - +22 whp

      The 986 Boxster is the original and first generation model. Every Porsche 986 Boxster including the base and S models use a watercooled M96 flat-6 motor. These are naturally aspirated motors that benefit from better breathing as Fabspeed's testing can attest to.


      • Fits Porsche 986 Boxster vehicles 1997-2004 (please inquire about 1997-1999 fitment)
      • Dyno proven peak gains of 12whp and 8 ft-lbs torque (on Boxster S)
      • Curve gains of 22whp and 16ft-lbs torque at 7000rpm (on Boxster S)
      • Uses dry-style filters that do not require oiling; simply lightly wash down with warm water and re-use
      • Will not foul mass air flow sensor
      • CAD designed for maximum air flow
      • Direct bolt-on replacement for the factory air box
      • All Fabspeed performance products are backed by the Fabspeed Lifetime Warranty

      Let's take a look a the dyno from a 2002 Boxster S 3.2 liter:

      You will notice the intake making an impact past 4000 rpm and especially in the upper rev range. At 4700 rpm it is picking up 10 wheel horsepower. By 7200 rpm, that number is 22 wheel horsepower compared to stock.

      Fabspeed goes over the intake in the video below. You can combine it with an intake plenum and Fabspeed Race Headers to maximize the naturally aspirated powerplant.

      This part is something both track guys and those wanting more aggressive sound will want to have with a horsepower to dollar ratio on the platform that is hard to beat:

        Because they're so cheap they are pretty popular for autocrossing/roadcourse work. Hard to find a more affordable and capable mid-engine platform for the money.
