K&N Typhoon® Air Intake Systems Available for 2002-2006 Mini Cooper S
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.
K&N's Typhoon® intake systems are show-quality and are available in a two-coat red, blue and silver powdercoat, as well as, in polished aluminum.
All K&N Typhoon® intake systems are designed to be compatible with current engine-management and emissions systems.
