Want to gain horsepower with only about five minutes work?
Here is an economical replacement with a clamp for the JCW Cold Air Intake.
Fits the following MINIs WITH the JCW Cold Air Intake:
2002-2006 R53 MINI Cooper S Hatchback
2005-2008 R52 MINI Cooper S Convertible
NOTE: Check to make sure your JCW intake has the 'cylindrical filter' and not the flat panel filter. This is not a 'conversion' kit.
If you have the optional John Cooper Works air intake then you've got some work to do. When John Cooper Works created their Mini Cooper S airbox they neglected to use a high flow performance air filter. Unfortunately, their JCW Mini Cooper S air box still uses a paper filter element, which is very restrictive, significantly limiting airflow. This replacement high flow velocity stack filter is a direct fit and installs in 5 minutes.
This Mini Cooper S High Flow Air filter gives you both increased airflow and reusability at a very low price. Considering that their restrictive/ non-reusable John Cooper Works replacement paper filter costs $190 to replace, can you afford not to make the switch? The high flow Filter can be cleaned so that it may be used for a very long time if properly maintained.
Lifetime manufacturers warranty.
Apply a light coat of K&N filter oil before installation. Oil not included.
Filter length is 7.75", Big end diameter is 5", small end diameter is 4", Inlet hole diameter is approx. 3.25"
