For Porsche 964 enthusiasts, the Perma-Tune LM220 conversion kit represents a significant upgrade. This kit introduces two key enhancements: a sleek carbon fiber air box and a state-of-the-art solid-state air mass sensor (AMS).
Gone are the days of the stock plastic air box and mechanical air flow sensor (AFS). The LM220 offers a visual and performance overhaul with its carbon fiber air box, strategically designed to optimize air flow into the engine, capitalizing on the ram air effect. Additionally, the AMS replaces the outdated AFS, eliminating restrictions on engine control unit (ECU) response time and accuracy.
The result? A noticeable increase in horsepower, providing a thrilling driving experience whether you’re hitting the track or cruising the streets. If you’re seeking to unleash the full potential of your Porsche 964, the Perma-Tune LM220 conversion kit is the ultimate upgrade you’ve been searching for.
Installation is a breeze, requiring a simple swap of the original air cleaner box with our LM220 kit, complete with a top-quality filter element. The LM220 translator module seamlessly interfaces with the EFI computer, making it a cost-effective alternative to replacing the stock AFS.
Maximize the potential of your LM220 kit by pairing it with an engine management unit (ECU) remap. By combining the LM220 with the LM221, we’ve witnessed remarkable power gains of up to 45 HP.
With this dynamic duo, you’ll unlock unparalleled performance for your Porsche 964. The LM220’s carbon fiber air box and solid-state air mass sensor (AMS) optimize air intake, while the LM221 remap fine-tunes your engine’s parameters to extract every ounce of power.
Experience a thrilling boost in horsepower and torque, transforming your driving experience whether you’re tearing up the track or cruising the streets. Don’t settle for anything less than the ultimate in Porsche 964 performance – unleash the full potential of your ride with the LM220 and LM221 combination.
The Perma-Tune part number 964206 warns the Porsche 964 driver of a catastrophic distributor belt failure. The failure of the secondary distributor head drive belt will result in severe damage to the engine if the car is continued to be driven with a broken belt. The 964206 integrates with the existing engine cooling system fan belt warning system. Once installed, if the distributor belt breaks, the fan belt warning light will illuminate on the car’s dashboard. A Visual inspection of the engine bay will reveal if the reason the dashboard light illuminated is a broken fan belt or broken distributor belt.
Additionally, the 964206 kit offers a valuable feature for engine builders: it remembers the highest RPM the engine reached. This feature can be utilized to document missed downshift damage to the engine, and the recorded data can only be retrieved by the Perma-Tune laboratory.
If you’re feeling up to the challenge of swapping out your engine’s ignition distributor, you’re well on your way to installing a slick warning system yourself. Alternatively, if you prefer to keep the adrenaline rush on the road, a seasoned mechanic can have it installed in no time.
For the hands-on enthusiasts diving into the installation, make sure you’ve got your hands on a Porsche 964 factory engine manual. Remember, there are different engine configurations for the 964, so it’s crucial to have the right instructions tailored to your ride. The installation journey involves some muscle—removing air handling parts, dissecting the distributor cap and rotor, and delicately extracting the distributor from its cozy engine nest. The good news? No wire splicing needed; it’s all plug and play once you’ve got the distributor out.
Now, let’s talk about the heart of the matter—the distributor shaft bearings. If they’re feeling a bit weary, you might need to show them some love with a rebuild. But fear not! Perma-Tune’s got your back. They’ll handle the sensor, magnets, and all the wizardry needed to bring your distributor back to life. Just be sure to reach out to them for the lowdown on packing and shipping before you send off your precious part.
On to the fun part—tools! You’ll want to arm yourself with:
– A trusty medium-sized flat-head screwdriver
– Needle-nose pliers to finesse the sensor element into place
– A 10 mm socket with a ¼ inch drive for the relay box cover
– An 8 mm socket with a ¼ inch drive to tackle the ground screw on the spark plug wire holder
– Don’t forget your angle ratchet and a box-end wrench, size 14 mm, for securing the union nut on the sensor element.
