The jury is still out on that one. Let's just say the best we could do was agree to disagree. The debates started when the "great" Powerflow air cleaner assembly came out and people were pretty ticked that they were not seeing the HP increases the manufacturer had claimed. There was a lot of speculation back then on what "the cone" was used for. At the very least it redirects and stabilizes the air flow to the metering plate.
Dave I agree with you !!!! I was wrong to have made a definitive "no"
statement. I know from changing air cleaners on my motor I "noticed" no
difference in idle, cruise, or wot. I'm quite sure if you were to flow the CIS
with and without we would know the difference although I never heard
of a unit flow tested with an air cleaner installed.
In retrospect I will reiterate, as with my "Mercedes" statement, I don't
think Porsche would have put it there if I did not serve some functional
purpose. You and Pat are probably right in it being used to direct air, in
some particular manner or pattern, over the metering plate for some
functional purpose I do not Know.
