Anybody using an AFE Dry Air Filter?


Pretty soon I am supposed to receive a well cared for 1999 Porsche Boxter. I was thinking of getting an AFE dry air filter. Anybody use one of these? I know and don't expect any big power, just want a little bit more intake noise when accelerating. Safe or not worth the risk? Just going to ad some budget mods for this car. Thx. Gerald.

I tried one maybe 4 or 5 years ago. It was slightly thicker than the OEM filter and there was no way it was going to slide into the airbox. Matter of fact I ended up breaking the tray the filter sits in. Bought a new tray and decided it wasn't worth the effort so I just stuck the OEM filter back in. Perhaps they've redesigned it by now? If you get one, let us know how it fits.

I have an AFE dry filter in my 98 Boxster. I bought it more for convenience than performance or increased intake noise.

To be honest I don't really notice an increase in intake noise. Getting performance increase from an air filter is a myth in my humble opinion. Also when you clean it be sure it's dry. If it's at all damp your motor will let you know.

More intake noise=desnorkel.
It's a glorious sound!
