The ALTA Silicone inlet hose connects the MINI Cooper air box to the throttle body. The factory part is corrugated and ribbed on the inside. Turbulence is created and air flow velocity is reduced, compromising throttle response and upper end HP. Our silicone hose is mirror smooth promoting a high velocity air charge. The inner diameter of the OEM hose is very small compared to the ALTA hose. This is one of the reasons to why our intake systems make more power than the competition!
