Yes, yes..... they are. Remember reading about this a couple years ago. Since Bosch makes them there has to be more than one application.
They were on ebay around 2-3 years ago, band new, for $75.

I recommend that any sales to non-members add a 10% tax...

I wish you well
Herman, I'm sorry, but I was not under the impression that I'm supposed to hold it for you. You were not sure (and I was not sure) if it fits the 928GTS. In your first email, you said you want it "if" it works on your car. No agreement took place, and a buyer came along. Sorry!

The printed circuit for the instrument cluster is a good bet to go NLA since the 78 already is ,the 79-1981 is STILL available, BUT the 82-84 is NLA , 1985-88 is still OK . I bought one for the very brown 1980 and hid it in my desk It is impossible to predict if or when Porsche will opt NOT to reorder parts from a supplier. Things like minimum order quanties, suppliers going out of business, molds dies wearing out and retooling is a big capital expense and Porsche looks at sales history to decide if it makes sense(money) to continue selling a part. But as was mentioned Porsche parts prices have been increasing faster than most "investments"... And I personally hope to NOT be NLA for a long time ! anthough not being in LA has some attraction...

From some googling, the MAF is Bosch part number 0 280 214 001, which seems to be used in the BMW M5 (E34) from 1991 to 1993 (the 3.6L anyway). Also used my MTM on their Audi RS2 upgrade. For ebay searching. the German for MAF seems to be "Luftmengenmesser".

According to this site: http://snipurl.com/zz20 there ARE differences between 928GT and other models. John Speake, what do you make of this with your extensive experience?

It would be useful if anyone could confirm, or cross-reference to other cars.

Ian

As I said before .....The MAfs were sold for $75, then the seller realized that they are worth a lot more and the price vent up to around $150. That was about 2 years ago, maybe more. People went cray over the $75 MAF then when it went up all of a sudden the topic died.

Hi Ian
The 928 MAF was developed exclusively for the 928 (as was the LH2.3 ECU for the >87.) I guess Porsche thought as the 928 would replace the 911 that there would be a very large production run of these units.

The MAF was used on one of the M5 models, and I have supplied rebuilds for that application. (I thought it was for earlier version of the M5 than the one you quote).

And it was used on a run of 250 special Audi rally cars.


The MAF # is no different for a GT to S4/GTS, so that info is incorrect.

Some more data points.... according to the Bosche Automotive eCat Online site there is a remanufactured part number 0 986 280 124 which is a remanufactured 0 280 214 001. Something else to ebay for

Also on that site, the vehicle list for the 0 280 214 001 is:
Audi Quattro (85) 2.1 20V Turbo
BMW (E35) M5 3.6 and 3.6 CAT
All the 928s
and that's it

HTML Code:

are worth a lot more and the price vent up to around $150.
Current list prices (approx $price depends on exchange rate) quoted in Switzerland;
Bosch circa 750US$ plus old MAF
Porsche circa 1200US$

HTML Code:
the German for MAF seems to be "Luftmengenmesser".
That is correct; often shortened to LMM

in looking for the part number 0 280 214 001 i see its listed as a part for a 1.8 litre ford escort, does that make sense? could they really be the same?, if so there might be more around than i thought.
