Did you guys get the same careful packaging I did? .......... the MAF loose in the box with no protection whatsoever.

Mine only as the Bosh part number on it. It does look the same as what's on the car but it doesn't carry the Porsche number.

I just received mine today (which took many e-mails to Juan before shipping).

I noticed on the barrel, opposite side of where the plug goes in, is what looks like the rectangular remains of an adhesive of some sort---like a label was removed.

Anyone else's part looks like this?

Hey David,

mine was the same. That Bosh part also works on some BMW model. I assume that these had a BMW sticker instead of the Porsche one and he didn't want questions or returns over a misunderstanding. But the Bosh part # is molded in the plastic and it is the right one.
Bosch Part Number 0280 214 001 (Porsche P/N 928 606 141 00)

Thanks for the heads up guys.

I'm sure there is a wonderful story that Juan could tell us regarding how and where he obtains these MAF's.

Better we don't know.

I did some pm's at the begiining of this new MAF deal and along with that careful packaging you will notice that we did not get a plug over the adjustment screw, but it certainly looks factory fresh.

Well I have had mine in my car for a week or so now, was concerned about a rattle when I got the MAF but it was just the screen moving ... phew. Anyway car returns to idle much more consistantly now and I had a slight surging on part throttle .. also gone.

Anyway well pleased with it, specially for the price.

It is my understanding that Jon Holdsworth will be attending Frenzy 7 from England with a John Speake rebuilt MAF for demo, just as he did at Euro 928 2003. So come on down to Frenzy 7 and pop it in and see if it helps your 928's performance. Looks like you all know where to find John Speake if it does.

Tom, Dave M,
I take to heart most of your comments. however if you think your 928 parts are expensive, come to Europe !

There were only about 4000 928s imported to England over the whole production span. The parts are silly prices here...........MAF about $1000 , LH ECU $1920. timing belt $160.

The Big 3 change highish prices because they are charged high prices from Porsche, especially those innocent bits of Porsche-only plastic - unobtainable from the OEM. The Big 3 have to pass on the costs of keeping a large stock of parts, so you enjoy fast delivery. They ahve to rent expensive business premises to house all that stuff........you know the score.

Whether a 30% drop in prices for some parts is possible, I don't know. But unlikely.

Yes, Porsche prices are more expensive than other car makers, but that's Porsche's policy, not the Big 3. And Bosch have their cosy arrangment with Porsche too.........

My business is on a very modest basis. I don't have many products, my overheads are low. I can charge less than others. I try to keep to products that are not available elsewhere, then I don't tread on too many feet.

At present 75% of my turnover is ploughed back into the business. But I get a lot of satisfaction from satisfied customers !

Dr. Bob,
Yes, it is possible to upgrade an '88 LH ECU '89 spec. I charge $75. You can fit the chip yourself. The '88 ECU has diagnostics

Also, even the '87 year cars are wired for diagnostics, with the same connector as used on the '88 models. It's on a 12 pin rectangular connector near the ECUs.

With an EPROM swap any '87 LH ECU car can be also upgraded for Diagnostics.

Regards to all,

Mine just came yesterday.

No plug over the mixture screw
no packing material ( just covers on the ends)
Missing the part number sticker
No need to prompt the seller to ship

WORKS JUST FINE!!

I just bought one form Juan as well. He is shipping mine out and I will let you know when I get it. Is the MAF under the air filter? I havent even bothered looking yet. How long doe it take, what is involved on an S3?

Yes, the MAF is under the air filter lower housing. It takes about 10 minutes or less to replace on an S3. Take off the top cover, remove the 2 10mm nuts or bolts on either the left or right side, loosen the spider clamp, remove the wire connector, and thats it.

Happy driving

Ron
