The ALTA MINI Cooper Gen2 inlet pipe replaces the OEM plastic turbo inlet hose, flowing
more air and making more horse power. Featuring CNC’d aluminum and
mandrel bends, we create and even bigger and better turbo inlet hose.
Construction - Coupler
The mouth of the ALTA inlet hard pipe featrures a CNC’d aluminum coupler
with precision machined dual o-ring grooves for the ultimate seal.
The back edge of the coupler features a traditional style air horn,
like those found on race cars, which provides smooth air transition to
the turbo inlet.
Construction - Pipe
The ultra smooth interior of the ALTA inlet pipe is formed from
mandrel bent aluminum tubing, smoothly transitioning from a 2.37"
diameter and finishing at the throttle body at 2.62".
This side by side comparison of the ALTA and OEM turbo inlets
illustrates how the ALTA inlet has the largest possible inside
diameter, which means more horse power and better turbo response!
Starting immediately after the turbo our 1.82" dia. inlet has a smooth
2.37" dia. bend and then cleanly transitions to 2.62" at the throttle
The ALTA inlet hard pipe features a black wrinkle powder coated finish which matches the Alta Cold Air Intake shield.
