Form one of the worlds most respected aftermarket air filter manufacturers comes the Typhoon air intake system for the Gen 1 MINI Cooper S. Great craftsmanship, clean design, and of course the high quality KN conical filter make this a great upgrade from the restrictive stock air box. Features a custom polished aluminum outfeed tube to the throttle body and a replacement infeed tube from the grill vent as well as vertical panel to help seal off the air around the filter (shown to the left of the filter). Overall this is one of the better performing intakes on the market and is engineered well. It also has the trademark red KN filter element which is backed by one of the best warranties in the industry and is endlessly cleanable so you can keep it performing at its best. I had one of these on my personal car for about 1 year and was very pleased with it overall. It sounded good, improved overall responsiveness and of course made the supercharger whine a fair amount because of the increase in air flow. This intake typically performs at the top of the list with the Alta and Helix intakes. Out of all the intakes on the market it looks like it does the most, for what its worth. Must be the extra inlet tube....

This KN Intake is one of the many MINI Cooper Parts and Accessories that we carry and will fit the following MINI Cooper Models and Years:

Gen1 MINI:

R53 MINI Cooper S Hatchback: 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006

R52 MINI Cooper S Convertible: 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008

* Does NOT fit the Automatic transmission cars...because the outfeed hose to the throttle body on the automatics is different...

Excellent fit. I bought the matte black to try and match the rest of the trim and it looks factory installed.

Removing the OE chrome grill "nuts" was a bit of a pain, so I elected to just snap the plastic threads off rather than attempt to remove them. I wouldn't plan on keeping the OE grill as the plastic threads and stamped nuts are practically destroyed no matter how gentle you are.

The upper grill snaps in and use the same fasteners as the OE. The new stamped nuts can be a bit annoying, just seat the nut on the ball of your thumb and turn. Once the nut cuts into the plastic use a nut-driver to snug up--don't over tighten.

The lower grill just snaps in. I cleaned and plasti coted the bumper black, as you can see the bumper color behind the new grill--my car is red so it really stood out.

This grill makes the car look so much better and more up to date. I really like it.

Hello, My order #xxxxx. I was very happy with the quick delivery. I checked the contents-then put the box aside. When "life 's other stuff" got handled, I looked through the box again and saw the blue fob strip. First I thought it was added in error & was thinking "Crap, how do I get this back to them?" Then I saw the note from Chris. I wanted to get back and let you know how much I appreciated that. So kudos to the company and everyone that handled my order.

Now I want to buy more "stuff" for my mini!

You got a great team.

Purchased many things from you and have had nothing but great service. My only complaint is the mini countryman carbon fiber covers I received. They provided a glue with it that youre supposed to apply to the back, I did and now my carbon fiber covers are ruined as is the finish on my hood, I dont know what type of glue this is but it doesnt seem to make the covers stick only leak everywhere, so thats 150 out of my pocket to have this stuff buffed off my car.
