Our system consists of long billet-aluminum temperature-resistant powder-coated bracket and chromed aluminum flange adapter. This custom manufactured bracket will help to secure 6 Lbs. Air/Flow meter in it's place as well as isolate it from the engine's vibration. In the front, the bracket re uses the original rubber bushings from the removed Air Box. (purple arrows). It is a good idea to remove the original air box anyway from your 944 NA for safety reasons. The airbox pipe runs to the double wall fender in front of the left front tire. Driving over the 6 inch puddle will ruin your engine. In this case by engine's suction. the water will rise in the fender and enter your engine through the air box. Since water can not be compressed, the first cylinder receiving this small gulp of water quickly brakes away fron the rod. This is not a fantasy call your mechanic.
Heat under the hood issue
By removing the original air-box, you will uncover large area of void, between the engine and 944's body.(blue arrow) Open air area next to the engine, measures approx. 20 inches by 16 inches. The hot exhaust header is located on the opposite side of the engine, and plays little part in this instance. The angled driver's side firewall creates an air-dam effect, forcing the bottom cold air into the engine's compartment, thus greatly reducing the temperature.
