Product Description

Just like you, your MINI craves fresh air. The ALTA MINI Cooper S Intake System is an alternative that provides a steady supply of cool fresh air thanks to a perfect seal, smooth silicone inlet hose and ALTA know-how. Crafted from cold-rolled steel, the air box is finished to achieve an original equipment look and feel.

The ALTA Performance intake system pulls cold air from the factory air ram duct in the front grille and through the vent below the windshield. The isolated filter is bathed in cool fresh air and never exposed to the warm air under the hood. This is the only aftermarket intake system that is fed a constant supply of cool fresh air.

The stock air intake draws air in through the scoop in the front grille. The air is passed into the lower portion of the air box where it is pulled through the air filter and into the throttle body. Once in the supercharger the air is compressed through the intercooler and into the motor. The weakest point in the system is the inefficient air ducting, which takes many, unnecessary turns and has a corrugated finish, which disrupts airflow. The Alta intake system pulls cold air from the air ram duct in the grille and through the vent below the windshield. The box is sealed to the hood and prevents under hood heat from entering the intake airstream. The filter encapsulated in a fresh air bath. Reducing inlet air temperatures will create a cooler, denser air charge raising HP, and torque.

The new Alta Performance air box is formed from cold rolled steel. Laser cut and CNC bent to perfection. Power coated silver for protection and an O.E.M. look. The new air box top will fit perfectly into the bottom of your factory air box. The box will be sealed to the underside of the hood and prevent under hood heat from entering the intake stream.

Our high flow foam filter reduces intake restriction and increases the surface area from which the engine can ingest clean air. Unlike cotton and gauze type filters, foam filters allow for multi layer filtration.The ALTA Performance foam based filter will trap dirt within the filter at many different levels. This allows for better particulate restriction and will not reduce HP as the filter gets dirty.
