Improved air flow into the supercharger = more horsepower = better performance! The Mini Mania Cooper 'S' Cold Air Intake System improves on existing designs for greater efficiency.
The stainless steel air intake box uses a wider design with chamfered base to enable better air flow across the entire air filter while providing adequate clearance from other engine compartment devices. The high pressure area at the base of the windshield directs outside air into the airbox through the existing bulkhead opening.
The shape of the air intake system frame in conjunction with its bulb type rubber seal provides a positive seal against the underside of the bonnet, eliminating the need for an obtrusive top.
Works well on earlier JCW cars without the the JCW cold air intake system.
