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
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
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
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.
