aFe is thrilled to have our very own Porsche 911 991 C4S, being mentioned as top ten best Porsche's at SEMA 2015 by Super Street Magazine. Here is what they said about our vehicle.
"AFE Power has been making big strides in the industry for both on and off road. Now it looks like they want to take on the Porsche world by storm and showed off this brand new 991 that uses AFE Control Suspension - their newest entry into the automotive aftermarket. It also sports Yokohama F50 wheels in Platinum Black."
Congrats to all of the aFe Team for the hard work that went in this project.

This week's SEMA vehicle spotlight, is our 2014 Porsche 911/991 Carrera 4S. The legendary 911 model has been around for over 50 years and as years goes on, it keeps raising the bar for other sports cars. This car rockets to a quick 0-60 in 4 seconds, using the full potential of it's H6-3.8L Naturally Aspirated engine. While this state of the art piece of machinery is very impressive, our engineers felt there can be improvements made.
Here is a list of aFe upgrades we have done to our Porsche that you will see at our SEMA booth.
Come by Booth # 21301 to see what new product we have for your vehicle.
Our Intake development team went to work, creating a one piece 3D printed housing using the latest in CAD technology. The Stage-2 SI intake system will shield the filters from engine heat, while using the OEM air ducts to draw cool air in to maximize horsepower and torque.
We utilize two large high flowing 4-1/2" flange filters that will not only protect, but deliver an increase in power and throttle response. They will be mounted to a carbon fiber tube that connects directly to the throttle body, as well as another key feature is our box will be roto-molded and will integrate a carbon fiber top for decreased weight.
We didn't just stop at the intake, we also installed our cat-back exhaust on our Porsche Carrera 4S. Countless hours were spent in R&D to develop an exhaust that sounded, performed, and looked impressive. Constructed out of 304 Stainless Steel that is TIG-welded for superior durability, all while providing a nice brushed by hand finish.
We designed our X-pipe in CAD, to simulate how different designs would help in scavenging exhaust pulses more efficiently. Racing inspired us to develop a brushed finish step mid pipe, which releases all available power at once rather than a gradual gain. The end result was an impressive +34 HP and +43 lbs. x ft. of torque to the wheels, on the factory tune. Our engineers were also eager to make our exhaust as light as possible, we ended up shedding 20 lbs from the OEM exhaust. Finally we provided two exotic tip options to match an exotic machine. You can choose either our quad 3.5" Carbon Fiber tip, or our lustrous polished quad tip.
Porsche Carrera owners will enjoy the improved experience, with our exhaust.
It is available now for purchase.

aFe Power is proud to introduce all new Elite Twisted Steel headers and performance tip upgrades for the 2013-2014 Porsche Cayman S/ Boxster S (981) with H6-3.4L engine.
The performance headers are available with 200 CPSI, 48-state legal cats or in a “Race” version. These unique headers are engineered with tuned 1-7/8” near equal length 304 stainless steel tubing for unrestricted flow giving you more power and torque.
In testing, the catted headers delivered an astounding +22hp and +22lbs. x ft. torque as verified by our in-house dyno. Realizing that the OE exhaust tip could also be improved, aFe designed special dual 3.5" 304 stainless steel exhaust tip upgrades that outflows the stock tip assembly.
The performance tip upgrade is available in either polished or carbon fiber with a laser-etched aFe Power logo. All necessary hardware is supplied for a hassle-free installation with no modifications necessary.
aFe is proud to introduce new OE replacement filters for 2013-2014 Porsche Boxster/S & Cayman/S (981) with H6-2.7L/3.4L engines. These filters are offered in two media: Pro DRY S for maximum convenience, and Pro 5R for maximum airflow. These filters outflowed the stock paper filters by 33% providing performance without sacrificing protection.
The air filter frame is constructed using 100% polyurethane for long life and durability. This construction is rigid yet allows for a proper OE-style fit with excellent filter strength. Washable and reusable for multiple cleanings, rounded pleat design provide excellent dust holding capacity for longer service life between cleanings. Inside the box you will find two filters and all the necessary mounting hardware.
Full Urethane Framed Construction
aFe POWER performance air filters are constructed using full 360 degree urethane frames. This construction is very rigid and allows for a proper fitment with excellent filter strength.
aFe performance air filters use a rounded pleat design, which produces more usable filter surface area for increased flow and greater dust holding capacity.
Used with provided screws to secure filters in place for true OE fitment.
