Significantly improves cold air induction into the engine and vastly improves power and sports car sound throughout the rev range. Constructed with genuine carbon fiber for strength, durability, and maximum flow and performance. Used by professional Grand Am, KONI Race Teams, but also works great on the street.


OEM airboxes are designed to muffle the induction sound of the engine to quiet the interior. Unleash the sports car induction growl of your flat 6 with this intake.


OEM airboxes are compromised by their need to muffle induction sound which is why our Competition Intake is able to improve power by 24 whp and 19 ft-lbs.


  • Fits all Porsche 996 Carrera vehicles from 2000-2004 (Specify Transmission and Trim Level above). The Tiptronic Transmission and X51 Models include an additional breather filter and hose for the factory PCV connection.

  • Improves horsepower and torque by 24 whp and 19 ft-lbs

  • Uses dry-style filters that do not require oiling; simply wash down with warm water and re-use

  • Dry style air filter will not fowl MAF sensor

  • Intake constructed from genuine carbon fiber

  • CAD designed for maximum air flow

  • Direct bolt-on replacement for the factory air box

  • All Fabspeed performance products are backed by the Fabspeed Lifetime Warranty


  • The Competition Intake does NOT fit 1999 year models due to interference issues with the factory air pump and deck lid blower fan. See our Cald Air Upgrade Kit for our 1999 intake solution

    Better than you could expect !

    This intake has exceeded my expectations ! The sound is wonderful, the look is great and honestly I didn't expect to feel a power difference but I do. More importantly I believe my car is enjoying it. The engine is running cooler with all of the extra air. It's running so smooth and like I said it sounds awesome. It's a little bit of a pain to install, but I called the company and someone gave me a few tips and it all went together well. For the most part anyway ; ) This is a must get product. It gives you everything that it claims. It has brought new life and enthusiasm for my car. Thanks Fabspeed !

    Good product but needs a little tidying up

    The fibre glass cut out can be a bit more accommodating the position and location of the pipes and the cords. Apart from that, its a wonderful product.

    Great Mod back by Great Service!

    Posted by Rob Ross on 23rd Nov 2016

    Sounds great, looks fantastic, and gave my 996 some appreciated growl and punch! When parts package arrived on a late Thursday, the heat shield was scratched in transit. I had shop time reserved for that Saturday for the install. The whole team at Fabspeed bent over backwards to get me the replacement by 10am on Saturday; over-nighting for a Saturday delivery. Brian Jamison personally made it happen with excellent communication and follow-through. Fabspeed stands out for their craftsmanship and over the top service.

    changes the driving experience

    Much more engaging driving experience with this intake on it. Parts are high quality, the air pump relocation is easy, the unit looks very good installed. Best bang for the buck on mods from what I can tell.

    I'm very happy with this intake. However, the "Direct Bolt-on replacement" feature should be replaced with "Some modifications may be needed." The carbon fiber back panel was drilled incorrectly and new bolt holes needed to be drilled. The cooling fan (mounted on the underside of the deck lid) did not pass the tubing of the intake. Therefore, I had to first remount the fan in order for the deck lid to close. I also feel I had to install the driver side filter to far onto the tube in order for it to fit, therefore I cut 2 inches off the tube and it fit perfectly. Once the adjustments were made, total instillation time was less than 20 minutes. These are very simple modifications and I would still recommend this product to anyone with the understanding that you may need to modify somewhat.
