K&N intake systems replace your vehicle's restrictive factory air filter and air intake housing. K&N intakes are designed to dramatically reduce intake restriction resulting in additional power and torque. All of them come with a Million Mile Limited Warranty and are guaranteed to increase horsepower. Published estimated gains of 4.10 HP @ 5997 RPM.

See dyno sheet.

Check local regulations for other model years.

K&N Engineering, Inc., requires cleaning the intake system’s air filter element every 100,000 miles. When used in dusty or off-road environments, our filters will require cleaning more often. We recommend that you visually inspect your filter once every 25,000 miles to determine if the screen is still visible. When the screen is no longer visible some place on the filter element, it is time to clean it.

For care and maintenance of the filter in this kit, see K&N Filter Care Kit.

K&N Press Release:

RIVERSIDE, CA - No other car has captured the automotive world's attention like the new Mini Cooper S. BMW has retained the essence of the original Mini and combined it with the latest safety and performance technology. The tightly packaged engine compartment of the supercharged, four-cylinder 1.6L engine presented a challenge for K&N designers, but they came through with a Typhoon® Short Ram intake system that virtually eliminates inlet restrictions, ensuring an abundant supply of cool air to the supercharger. Dyno tests have shown up to an 8hp increase at the drive wheels on some test vehicles, a healthy 7% increase in power with no other changes.

K&N's Short Ram Typhoon® intake system (Part # 69-2021) replaces the Mini's OE air filter and intake system. The combination of a K&N RX filter element, a high-flow XStream™-style air flow cap and a mandrel-bent 6061 intake tube designed for smooth laminar flow provides impressive airflow capability. The RX filter is a dual velocity-stack design and features oil-impregnated, cotton-gauze/screen construction. It can be cleaned and re-oiled with a K&N recharger kit. Other K&N exclusive features include 4-ply DuPont® Nomex® reinforced silicone high-temperature hoses to resist heat and maintain flexibility. Custom stainless-steel barrel clamps are used for outstanding durability, corrosion-resistance and clamping force.

All K&N Typhoon® intake systems are designed to be compatible with current engine-management and emissions systems.RIVERSIDE, CA - No other car has captured the automotive world's attention like the new Mini Cooper S.

Intake Kits and Components for Gen1 Minis R50 R52 R53
Created: September 05, 2017
The Cold Air Intake upgrade is one of the most common and simplest performance upgrades you can do to your Mini Cooper and Cooper S. Whether it is a simple filter replacement or a complete Intake Kit, these products are 'bolt-on' solutions with no permanent modifications to the Mini and completely reversible to stock form. Intake upgrades are all about improving the flow of filtered air into the engine. More air means stronger and more efficient combustion and the net result is more power! Intake upgrades are typically more noticeable in the upper rpm range where the stock restrictive intake causes power to fall off. Intake upgrades will typically move the power band closer to redline.
