This killer intake comes in two parts:
1) the RAS (Ram Air Scoop) which makes use of the non functional hood scoop that was just waiting to be used as an intake source, and
2) the DDMWorks PFB or Pressurized Filter Box.
With the complete race system in place, your Turbo MINI Cooper S filter is washed with cool pressurized ambient air coming in from the front of the car. The whole system working together insures improved throttle response and maximum power consistently for your MINI.
DDMWorks RAS (Ram Air Scoop)
The RAS is now available separately on the drop down menu option!
The unique shape of the DDMWorks RAS was designed to accelerate the incoming air from the hood scoop and keep the new intake box under pressure, forcing even more cold air into the turbo and engine. Two diverters on the back of the RAS direct the air down into the filter, and the RAS seals with the top of the DDM pressurized filter box (PFB) to ensure a cool ambient air supply. DDM also wanted regular maintenance of the car to be unaffected with the intake installed, so even with the RAS mounted to the bonnet of the car, regular maintenance of your engine is just as easy as stock. Access to the spark plugs, oil filter, and oil fill are just like stock. The scoop attaches to the bonnet using existing mounting points so there is no drilling or modifications needed for installation. DDM learned during thousands of miles of testing that exposed filters without the RAS in place see good temperatures during light cruise, but during long pulls the temperature of the incoming air continued to climb as the turbo heated the air coming in through the scoop. With the simple addition of the RAS on those intakes, temperatures stayed only a few degrees above ambient, which resulted in better throttle response and more consistent power. The RAS is offered in black matte powder coat.
DDMWorks PFB (Pressurized Filter Box)
During testing, DDM learned a lot about the new turbo MINI. A simple filter attached off of the air flow meter did a really good job of freeing up the intake on the R56. In fact, this simple intake proved to be a real good bang for the buck. DDM took the time to seal the intake with a covered box that installs easily over the bottom of your stock intake. With the system in place, the RAS seals with the PFB resulting in a pressurized system at speed that eliminates restriction before the turbo like no simple filter intake system can duplicate. It also keeps the air coming into your MINI at ambient, a big plus if you are looking to make consistent power during long full throttle accelerations at the track. The PFB comes with one of the UNI Dual Stage Foam Filters to keep the air being ingested by your engine clean and clear. With the foam filter on, you will be able to hear the faint sound of the turbo spooling up and the blow off noise of the bypass valve during shifting. DDM is also offering the PFB with a K&N filter for those that really want to hear the turbo spool and the bypass valve sounds during shifts. Both filters work equally well, but this way you can tailor the sound of the intake to your tastes.
The intake is offered in black matte powder coat.
On all 2011 and newer Turbo models, this intake will require a few
holes drilled into the flange where the DDM intake mates to the factory
airbox. (Some JCW models from 2011-2012 will NOT require this as they
still had the n14 engine.)
