This is a set of Porsche airbox parts that gives you a stock looking set up on a 914/6 (or early 911 for that matter). Look at the pictures to see what you are getting but the list is:

(1) factory plastic airbox (see description below)
(2) factory carb boxes with all clips intact, factory finish in good condition
(1) snorkel with reduced length, facing towards cyl no.1
(1) drain tube (black powder coated), nice condition
(2) very old gaskets for the carb air boxes (should be replaced!)
(2) new wing nuts (plastic) to hold the snorkel on + washers
(1) "shell oil" fill sticker, orientation / placement at the new owners discretion - NEWLY ADDED
(1) re-plated lever that links the fuel cold start assembly to the throttle shaft - NEWLY ADDED

The airbox has a nice patina, but as the pictures show one of the banks has a slightly warped / melted mounting base. In reality this is not too bad, and the carb box seems to mate with it OK (rubber gaskets are in place on the carb boxes). This particular part has holes and supports for cold start tubes - which are not fitted. The resulting holes are easily filled if this is not desired.

The snorkel could probably do with a refurb, with some scrapes on it, but is presentable enough as is.

The carb boxes appear excellent and all clips are in place and work well. Were fitted to Zeniths when I got them.

Note you will need to buy a new air filter which is not included in the kit.

So not a concours solution but it does get you on the road and looks the part. I'm struggling over price - the eBay offerings seem all over the place, and not too Many listed on Pelican. Some of the individual items can be hard to source though.

Priced at $400 shipped in CONUS, will consider offers.

- Tony
