Many would say the Mini Cooper is the original hot hatchback. It combines sporty performance and handling with excellent fuel economy in a compact package. With Mini being under BMW ownership for the last decade or so, the refined British character that makes the Mini so appealing has been matched with precision German engineering to make it a top choice in the hot hatchback segment almost every year. The base model Mini Cooper comes equipped with a 1.6 liter motor that produces 121 break horsepower and 114 pound-feet of torque which gives the lightweight Mini lively performance and acceleration. By adding a K&N 69-2024TTK Typhoon performance air intake system, 2012 and 2013 Mini Cooper 1.6 liter non-turbo owners can have a guaranteed increase in horsepower and performance for an even more lively driving experience.

The 69-2024TTK air intake system is designed to be a simple bolt-on performance upgrade. It’s easy to install, maintains all necessary factory connections, and does not require any additional modifications be made to the vehicle in order to provide an increase in horsepower. The 69-2024TTK system utilizes a free-flowing aluminum intake tube to help minimize restriction in the air intake pathway. The intake tube is powder coated in a flat black finish which provides a sleek look under the hood.

The RC-5144 conical air filter on the end of the system utilizes K&N’s oiled cotton gauze air filter medium to provide excellent filtration efficiency and high flow rates. It is shrouded by a heat shield to help protect incoming air from heat in the engine bay. The filter is washable and reusable and can go for up to 100,000 miles between cleanings, depending on driving conditions. When it comes time to wash the filter, simply wash and re-oil it using one of K&N’s Recharger filter service kits and follow the simple cleaning procedure.

Excellent engineering and sleek looks aren’t the end of the story for the 69-2024TTK intake system. On the dyno, the system produced an estimated 2.9 horsepower at 5504rpm and 2.5 pound-feet of torque at 3530 rpm over the stock air intake system. The 69-2024TTK will also produce a better engine sound than the factory air intake to complement the increased horsepower. As with all of K&N’s Typhoon performance air intake systems, the 69-2024TTK is backed by K&N’s famous Million Mile Limited Warranty.

Whether your 2012 or 2013 Mini Cooper 1.6 liter non-turbo is a faithful commuting vehicle or a sprightly weekend cruiser, the 69-2024TTK Typhoon performance air intake system is a perfect and simple performance upgrade to accent its tasteful and well-crafted character.

The 69-2024TTK air intake system will fit the following Mini Cooper models:
2013 Mini Cooper 1.6L
2012 Mini Cooper 1.6L
