Now, is that ALL NAs, or just 85.5 and newer cars? Is 30hp really a realistic estimate? 180hp would be really nice in my 944...

If 30hp was that easy to gain from the exhaust, I think Porsche would have comprimised whatever at the factory.

I believe the factory did compromise that only for the Eurocars though. Our US counterparts are well restricted. I tried my airbox when i smogged my car about a week ago again, then took it out for a test...came back home and put my cone filter back on, and actually noticed a difference in high rpms (not just sound). I believe the throttle body and DME are the restrictions...I have spoken to autothority and I will be sending them my DME soon to get their conversion board and chip for it. I'll keep ya'll updated.

think about this. the eurocars have higher compression pistons. 10.6:1 to be exact. they also have no cat and a different cam. they still utilize the same airbox. all this gains only 20 hp.

i think the 30 hp claim is for the 951, not the n/a. it better be. you can get those types of large gains only if you are able to flow lots more air, as in a turbo or supercharger. getting big power cheaply or simply from a non-forced induction is akin to cold fusion. just doesn't exist.

check out this article on 968.net about an owner who tries to get some extra hp from his 968!

so in order for us to gain more, we're gonna need to tear that motor apart....hmmmm this could be interesting, i got 2.8 pistons for a 944 sitting in my garage from EBS Racing and an autocross camshaft at my uncle's and a motor just sittin there too collecting dust...hmmm....i see a summer project =)

What the heck is an "autocross camshaft"? Never heard of or seen one.
