The ALTA inlet pipe replaces the OEM plastic turbo inlet hose, flowing more air and making more horse power. Featuring CNC’d aluminum and mandrel bends, this product becomes an even bigger and better turbo inlet hose.
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 body.
The ALTA inlet hard pipe features a black wrinkle powder coated finish which matches our R56 Cold Air Intake shield.
This graph illustrates a run with our intake, front mount intercooler, and turbo back exhaust already installed (the light blue run). We simply turned off the car and swap OEM turbo inlet to the ALTA Turbo Inlet (Green run). We were pleased that the gains were very repeatable from run to run with 7-8WHP from about 5400 RPM on up. Combine this with the ease of installation (less then 5 minutes) and the addition of quicker turbo response,makes the Turbo Inlet Hard Pipe hose a great addition to your Mini!
