From the web:
"Great consideration was put into the design of this K&N Typhoon Kit. Exclusive features include a stepped intake tube to eliminate the need for special adapters while improving air delivery. The location of the step was carefully tuned to provide greater increases in power. Additionally, a special angled silicone adapter was created to maintain the factory location of the stock crankcase vent hose. This Kit incorporates a highly unique heat shield that bolts to the bottom half of the factory air box. This retains the original cold air induction keeping inlet air temperature within factory specifications. The result of this hard work and dedication is an extra 11 horsepower at the wheels for the 2007 to 2008 Mini Cooper S.
K&N’s Research and Development Department tested a 2008 Mini Cooper S 1.6L I4 on our in-house dynamometer. Results showed an astonishing peak horsepower gain of 11.17 horsepower @ 4700 RPM! This Kit provides increased performance and an attractive black powder coated aluminum intake tube."
BREAK OUT OF THE FACTORY AIR BOX
This 57i Intake Kit is specifically designed for your MINI will free your MINI from the size restriction that comes with the factory air box. This kit is designed to provide power throughout the RPM range by taking advantage of the added airflow provided by an oversized air filter released from the restrictive factory air box.
This kit bring engine airflow out of the factory box by providing a large size open-air conical High-Flow Air Filter. The extra surface area of these open-air air filters provide even more airflow at lower restriction than a K&N O/E replacement filter which is always limited to the size of the factory air box. The larger air filter also captures and holds more dirt increasing its service life before a cleaning is required (up to 100,000 miles). The filter is then attached indirectly through a tube assembly running from the filter to the engine. All adaptors are made from high quality materials such as steel, aluminum, silicon or reinforced nylon and ensure long life. Not CARB approved.
Manufacturer's Warranty applies.
K&N Engineering, Inc., requires cleaning the intake system’s air filter element every 100,000 miles. When used in dusty or off-road environments, our filters will require cleaning more often. We recommend that you visually inspect your filter once every 25,000 miles to determine if the screen is still visible. When the screen is no longer visible some place on the filter element, it is time to clean it.
For care and maintenance of the filter in this kit, see K&N Filter Care Kit.
