Air Intake for MINI Cooper

What’s the big deal about a ‘cold air intake system’ for the MINI Cooper S? Most MINI Cooper S owners are interested in further improving performance on this already sporty high performance car. A properly designed cold air intake system is a great start at doing just that. So why ‘cold air’? Internal combustion engines require air and fuel to burn. The more efficient this process is, the more horsepower can be developed. An average engine can use more than 15,000 gallons of air for every gallon of fuel. The supercharged MINI Cooper S will typically need 20% more air than a normally aspirated engine! Cold air is much denser then warm air. Cooler, or cold air holds more oxygen per cubic foot. More oxygen in the intake “charge” yields more power developed in each combustion cycle. Thus, you’re getting more horsepower with the same or better fuel economy. The MINI Cooper S gets its intake air through two paths. A duct from the grille area provides direct airflow to the lower portion of the stock air box. In addition, air flows into the rear of the air box from air flow through the drivers side (left side) cowl vent. Common practice is to enlarge this inlet area to allow more pressurized air flow to the filter enclosure. This only solves part of the restriction problem however.
