Very pleased with the look and sound of this easy to install add-on. If you're looking for great sound and a seat of the pants faster feel, this is the one!

997 4S - Power is found right away, breaths way better, installed with evo chip and its not the same car anymore, also installed bypass pipes but had to take them off as they are way too loud for city use, took forty minutes before i got pulled over by a good looking blond haired police officer, got no ticket but got a warning that i sounded very fast..
For racers out there the bypass is great for the track

Just installed my new intake with my friend, and couldn't be happier with the new sound and power!! The engine literally howls and barks over 4500 rpm. I now drive in the upper rev range and keep my windows and targa roof open to enjoy the sound. Fantastic value, will be looking for more upgrades from Fabspeed.

My girlfriend was with me when I opened the box to this stunningly beautiful "lampshade" well at least that's what she initially thought it was! I laughed but then continued to explain to her that it was a performance intake for my 997 carrera lol I now like to refer to this as my "competition lampshade", that makes my engine roar and breathe with ease. These along with my fabspeed straight pipes and dual black fabspeed exhaust tip seriously have transformed my car. These are beautiful parts and the result in Hp and torque gain is just perfect for me. Worth every penny! I don't work for fabspeed at all I am just a Porsche collector and enthusiast. @rafael7b

This simple addition to your 911 will dramatically change how enjoyable it is to drive you car and rev out the engine! I did not expect this to improve the sound of the car, and it only changes it when you go deep into the throttle which is nice for cruising. Awesome buy, worth every penny!

The product is exactly as described. Perfect fit, looks outstanding and the sound is great under acceleration especially when I go over 5,000 RPM where I also notice significant power increase.
Friends asked what I did to my exhaust. I told them it is still stock, it is all induction sound from my Fabspeed air intake. AWESOME

Received the intake today and it arrived in great time for the weekend cruise. Opened the box and everything was package perfectly. The craftsmanship on all the parts was outstanding. Honestly never seen so much care taken in the creation of a part. It looks awesome too. Let's skip to the post-install run. Wow! Just like everyone else stated. Amazing sound. When it gets in that upper range it sounds super aggressive. But in a great way! Sounds like I did something to my exhaust more than anything else. Has a great "race car" sound.
ECU is still adjusting. Need to give a touch more gas coming out of first because it bogs down a bit but overall the throttle response has improved and once the ECU adjusts I'm sure the power will be readily available.
I looked up the instructions just for some fill-in reference as pulling out an air box is a simple task. Long story short, the whole install took about 30 minutes. Probably could have been quicker had I not been taking pictures and goofing off. Easy install. Also, the tamper proof torx bit is a T-20 or 25 I believe. Not a T-10. I'm not pulling out my tools to look but the T-10 is far too small.
Recommendation.... After you install everything, grab a black zip-tie and slide it under the left intake tube clamp. Tighten the clamp down all the way and then zip it around your oil fill tube. It'll keep it nicely in place and won't bounce around and you can barely tell a zip-tie is there. I'm looking into modifying the fill tube so it will be shorter and have a housing with a cap that will lock in and sit flush with the cutout in the partition. Should clean it up nicely. Just a thought for anyone else wondering what to do with that piece.
Anyhow... Props to Fabspeed for their great customer service and an amazing product. Next up is the exhaust. Can't wait!

I installed this on a 2007 Carrera S a few weeks ago. Out of the box (and on the car) the parts are beautifully made. The carbon fiber is gorgeous and all brackets looked jet-cut and hand-TIG'd. Installation was a little interesting, the directions (and parts) were for a 996 and there's a real difference from the 997. The guys at Fabspeed were very helpful, though, and I got it all put together in about 1.5 hours. I rethought some cable placement and was able to pull the entire thing off and put it back on about about 40 minutes. Once you know what you're doing it's cake. The sound is positively outstanding! It's almost dead-stock at part throttle and sounds like a race car wide open. As others have said, above 5k it sounds like a big angry animal with a personal grudge against the road. I'd certainly recommend it to anyone looking to get a little performance, a little "bling" for their engine bay, and some seriously great sound.

Well I hope this review helps others. I recently received my performance filter system, and I can honestly say that I am over the moon with this. Not for just the looks, but noticeable power as well. Many thanks guys!
