It's never a good idea to attempt to outrun the police. But it takes a special kind of fool to try to outrun a police officer who spends his free time racing a 996 GT3 Porsche around the racecourse.

Unlike other officers who choose to let off a little steam by fishing or hitting the gym, 14-year veteran Philip Klotz likes to get his thrills putting his heavy right foot down on some serious German horsepower.

Prior to his Porsche, the motorcycle officer toyed with two other imports, a 1994 Nissan Sentra SE-R and a 2000 Subaru Impreza RS 2.5L, both of which were equipped with AEM air intake systems.

Impressed with the quality fitment and the noticeable increase in performance, Philip Klotz became immediately converted, and now recommends AEM products to friends.

So when Philip Klotz purchased the factory-built Porsche 996 GT3 racecar-for-the-street, he sought to unlock some horsepower with an AEM air intake system. Klotz soon discovered that AEM didn't make an air intake for his Porsche. Being a gearhead, and a hardcore enthusiasts, he purchased a custom carbon fiber intake system to further enhance the GT3’s already impressive capabilities. However, unsure of the supplied air filters’ quality and filtration efficiency, he swapped them out for a pair of AEM Dryflow synthetic universal air filters which supply the clean, high flow air charge necessary to keep the racing inspired GT3 engine spinning to a dizzying 9000rpm redline.

When asked why, Philip Klotz replied, "AEM made the car run right and the fitment was easy as changing a tire." Klotz is so committed to AEM that he uses an AEM cold air induction kit on his daily driver, a Hemi-powered Dodge Ram 2500 quad cab 4x4, where he enjoys the added power and extra fuel mileage provided by the system.

"The Porsche doesn't see much track time nowadays," Klotz joked, "Right now the car is a weekend toy. I tell my friends that opening up the garage and seeing my GT3 parked in the garage makes it all worth it. I believe that if you work hard, then you should reward yourself. I was able to purchase my dream car and have never regretted it."

AEM offers a number of air filtration solutions for drivers with unique and/or custom engine setups who cannot use AEM application specific products.

They are ideal for custom cars and vehicles with engine swaps.
