The MINI Cooper S engine utilizes a turbocharger to pressurize the intake tract to force feed the engine air to produce power. As such, a weak point has been identified that impairs the efficiency of this system.
The Hi-Flow Charge Pipe Upgrade replaces the factory necked-down hose between the intercooler and throttle body (cold-side) just before the intake manifold. The Hi-Flow Charge Pipe Upgrade includes a new CNC mandrel bent pipe and silicone couplers that will not expand under boost. The system eliminates OEM sound chamber which, in result, helps to increase turbo response as well as mid-range and top-end power.
Fits the following Cooper S models:
2007-2013 R56 MINI Cooper S Hardtop
2008-2014 R55 MINI Cooper S Clubman
2009-2015 R57 MINI Cooper S Convertible
2012-2015 R58 MINI Cooper S Coupe
2012-2015 R59 MINI Cooper S Roadster
2011-2016 R60 MINI Cooper S Countryman
2013-2016 R61 MINI Cooper S Paceman
Note: You will notice in the second photo that a 'spigot' has been eliminated. This spigot was a connection to a sound chamber/generator which was used to quiet the intake 'sounds'. This was eliminated to improve performance.
