Racing expertise for more fun in everyday driving. The Mini Mania Stage 2 Kit for the MINI Cooper S includes components whose development is derived directly from expertise gained from motor racing. This most powerful version of the new Mini Mania kits thus carries on a tradition which dates back 32 years of racing success of the Classic and BMW MINI. The resulting package fires the MINI Cooper S to new performance peaks and even greater driving fun!
The Mini Mania system installs at the flange, eliminating the need for any 'cutting'. However it removes the secondary resonator.
The NM Engineering Fi-Flow Induction Kit
Hi-Flow intake system for the turbocharged R55/56/57 model MINI Cooper S. Unlike some competitors, this Premium intake features an integrated larger turbo inlet tube. CNC mandrel bent aluminum pipe, stainless brackets and silicone couplings that are all designed, engineered and manufactured to fit and perform.
Mini Mania Exhaust
Made from 2 1/2" T-304 stainless steel with dual 3" chrome tips. Eliminates downstream catalytic converter and includes a free flow muffler for reduced back pressure over stock design resulting in a gain of 10 - 12 hp. This system produces a deeper tone with only a slight increase in volume.
NO cutting required - the Mini Mania system installs at the flange, just ahead of the downstream cat. Since the O2 sensors are upstream, this will not trigger the Check Engine Light. Check your local regulations regarding the removal of the downstream cat.
The following excerpt is from Jay Kavanaugh, a turbosystems engineer at Garrett.
"As for 2.5" vs. 3.0", the "best" turboback exhaust depends on the amount of flow, or horsepower. At 250 hp, 2.5" is fine. Going to 3" at this power level won't get you much, if anything, other than a louder exhaust note. 300 hp and you're definitely suboptimal with 2.5". For 400-450 hp, even 3" is on the small side.”
