Please note, during 1988 the fuel return hose type on this model changed from being a push on hose, secured with a hose clamp (jubilee clip) to one which was connected with a screw on hose fitting. Please check your car before ordering, even if the date seems correct, it is possible your car may have been modified with a different fitting, if so, check our other fuel pressure regulators, match the part number as printed on your current fuel pressure regulator, or call/email us for assistance in identifying the correct part for your Porsche.

The benefits of this part are.
  • Evolution - Unlike the original part, this item has benefited from continued improvements.
  • Modern components - This part is ethanol friendly, for use with modern fuels containing ethanol.
  • High quality materials - This part is made to a quality level, not down to a price point.
  • Guarantee - This part has a full two year return to base guarantee (As you would get from Porsche).
  • Quality control - This part has been tested in the 9XX fuel lab on a Bosch approved fuel test machine to be within specifications as laid out by Bosch and Porsche.
  • Environmental plating - The original Bosch yellow plating process uses chemical processes now outlawed in Europe, this parts major cosmetic difference is not being plated using this process.
  • Standard looking part - Other than using the silver coloured plating process rather than yellow, this part has been designed to look as close to the original Bosch part as possible without breaching patents with Bosch or Porsche.
Fuel pressure regulators can fail in a number of ways with various symptoms including.
  • Poor fuel economy (gas mileage or miles per gallon / MPG)
  • Loss of performance
  • Hesitation
  • Misfires
  • High exhaust emissions (potentially failing your local roadworthy tests)
  • Exhaust smoke
We recommend that if you are suffering from any of these symptoms, that you have your fuel pressure checked by a competent garage, however, fuel pressure regulators do also have a finite lifespan as they contain rubber components which degrade with age. Therefore if your fuel pressure regulator is over 5 years old it may require replacement. If it is over 10 years old, it certainly is in need of replacement.

Important notice.
9XX only develop products in response to a need or gap in the market place.
Due to Bosch discontinuing manufacture of this part, along with the subsequent move by Porsche Classic to buy all available stock from Bosch, 9XX found that the only available fuel pressure regulators for the Porsche 924S, 944 and 968 Models were either ones in stock at Porsche, with limited availability at £260 plus local taxes, or very poor quality items originating in China but sold by several companies around the globe hinting at their origins being outside of China (such as Italy for example), which seem to be very poorly made, suffer from incorrect fuel pressure regulation. It is feared that they may leak fuel and become a fire hazard.
We have contacted one major Italian parts brand about the irregularity of their product, and they refused to comment or confirm the parts were made in Europe.

One tell tale sign of the cheap Chinese fuel pressure regulators is the design of where the vacuum hose pushes onto the regulator. A Bosch, Porsche or 9XX Part has a swollen area at the end of the fitting, known as a barb, flare or rolled edge to help secure the vacuum hose, the Chinese parts only have a flat cut off tube fitting.

9XX Developed their range of fuel pressure regulators as a high quality alternative to the cheap Chinese parts, with no regard to price, but only to quality, which result in a part which we believe is even better than the original Bosch parts, as sold by Porsche.

Here are some close up views of the correct vacuum hose port design, as found on our 9XX fuel pressure regulators.

9XX Fuel pressure regulator vacuum port, same as Bosch/Porsche design.
As you can see, the 9XX Part has a correctly formed vacuum port, which is a detail missed by the cheap Chinese copies.
In contrast, in the following photo we have one of the Chinese low cost parts.

Notice how the cheap Chinese part does not have the correctly formed fitting for the vacuum hose to connect to, with no swollen lip to help retain the hose. This is not just a small detail, but the acid test of a quality fuel pressure regulator.
Also notice the Chinese part is plated in yellow plating, which tends to use a process now outlawed in Europe and many countries around the world due to the chemicals involved being harmful to the environment.
