ALTA Performance has once again set the bar very high for the
competition! The ALTA Turbo MINI Cold Air Intake not only adds a proven
10WHP and 10ft-lbs of torque to your 2007+ MINI Cooper Turbo S and JCW,
but it also unlocks the sound from your turbo! With this intake not only
will you hear the turbo sucking in and compressing the air, but you
will hear the OEM blow off valve blowing open.
SILICONE INTAKE HOSES: The ALTA Five-Ply Silicone Elbow included
with our intake, is rated for 200psi, and 400 degrees. Like other ALTA
products this part is over built to ensure a lifetime of trouble free
use. This is one of the key features to our intake as the bend provides
the proper MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor reading and ensures no Check
SOUND: With an ALTA intake system your car will make a throaty, deep
tone on throttle that is undeniably modified. You will be able to hear
your turbo spooling and hear your blow off valve every time it opens.
Even the stock one.
ALUMINUM INTAKE BOX: The ALTA Turbo MINI Air Box was designed with
light weight aluminum. This provides a stiff, strong, and corrosion
proof shroud for the ALTA high flow foam filter and a connection point
for the fresh air tube. With a black wrinkle finish powder coat is
applied to keep things looking clean and finished for that show
appearance under the hood.
HIGH FLOW FOAM FILTER: Included with all ALTA intakes is our high
flow foam filter. ALTA Performance filters feature a unique two piece
design allowing the user to remove the foam filter element for easy
cleaning. Easily run the element under a faucet for cleaning and ring
out by hand. Simply slip the foam sleeve back over the filter frame and
your ready to go. Many ask us why not a "K&N Style" filter? The
quick answer is foam flows much better when dirty. The long answer can
be found HERE
COLD AIR INTAKE: Our intake is designed to remove the OEM hood scoop
plug/screen. During initial testing we found removing this provides
consistent ambient temps to the filter. While it's not a traditional
"Cold Air Intake" where the filter is located in a fender well, the ALTA
Cold Air Intake is just as good as it still gets a constant flow of
ambient cold air. This is just one of the reasons why or intake has dyno
proven HP! NOTE: On early production cars the screen is decorative only
and is sealed off completely. You must remove it for best performance.
On later models the scoop screen is mostly open and can be left in
NO CHECK ENGINE LIGHTS: When dealing with MAF (Mass Air Flow)
sensors, small changes in the intake system can create turbulence. While
this may seem insignificant, it can make huge changes to how the car
runs. Because we are familiar with this problem, great care was taken to
eliminate any turbulence issues that might throw a CEL, or make the car
run too lean or rich. What does that mean to you? An increase in
performance, proper fuel economy and protection for your engine. ALTA is
the only manufacture that takes this concern so seriously and our
customers reap the benefits!
