Which maf for my boxster ????
hI Friends,

I own a boxster 2.7 , 1st Reg 10/99.

I am currently in the process of replacing the MAF .
The one on my car is Bosch 99660612400 for E-gas .

But ! Everywhere I check it seems it should be Bosch 99660612300 !!!

I have sent for a replacement , obviously with the same code as was in the engine !?!

Can anyone please enlighten me , or is there someone with this model / year and can check their MAF part number PLEASE :)

if you have a 99, the MAF you need is:
996.606.123.00 (for non egas TB)
on the other end, the 2.7l engine was introduced only in year 2000 :confused:
what kind of TB you have?

Mine is e-gas thats why I presume it will be a 124 code , like the one in the car :)

you might be right.
look at this link:
Porsche Boxster Air Cleaner Parts
part # 7 is the MAF sensor.
in the table to the right, you can see more then 1 option.
on the remark column, you can fined your year, and on the model column you can find the engine type. M-XX
you can confirm by looking at the engine number printed on the block.

Given the man's location, the correct part number is the 124.00. UK cars are often introduced as different model years and sometimes even have different pollution controls so you have to be careful in using US assumptions when replying.

Boxa.net/forum is a good UK Boxster forum with active participation and some knowledgeable folks.

Maf replaced :)
Got the new MAF and the car is RE-BORN:)))

Here is the procedure I followed :-
1) Disconnect battery for 10 mins or longer .
2) Open top to access engine compartment .
3) Remove old MAF with Tamper proof Torx T20.
4) Hold MAF by sides and unclip connector .
5) Connect new MAF , without touching anything !
6) Place new MAF in place and tighten T20 screws .
7) If more than 10 mins has elapsed , re-connect battery terminal .
8) Switch ignition on for 1 min , then off , WITHOUT starting the engine .
9) Now switch ignition on and start the engine .
10) Close engine access compartment .

Mine started perfectly and run on idle within 1min .
Car has been transformed and the fuel efficiency is back to normal with no flat spots
across the RPM range .

Yoohoo :)
