The K&N 69-2021TP Typhoon air intake system is a free-flowing, mandrel-bent aluminum tube air induction system designed to fit some Mini Cooper S and Works models. The restrictive factory air filter and air cleaner assembly are replaced by the K&N Typhoon air intake which is designed to dramatically reduce air flow restriction as it smoothes and straightens air flow. This allows your engine to inhale a larger amount of air than the factory air intake. More air means more usable power and acceleration throughout the engine’s RPM range. The 69-2021TP air intake comes with a black rubber topped K&N high-flow air filter and a heat shield that installs into the previous upper air cleaner space. Air is directed through the intake tube into the engine’s throttle body for a guaranteed power gain. The intake tube has an attractive chrome-like finish that's made to last and it accommodates the factory vent lines. A replacement, matching aluminum air inlet tube is installed into the lower air cleaner to provide better air flow as well. The oversized cone shaped air filter can be used for up to 100,000 miles before servicing is needed depending on driving conditions. This air intake is relatively easy to install usually in 90 minutes or less using existing factory mounting points. The tools needed are a couple of screwdrivers, pliers, ratchet set and some wrenches. Some Typhoon air intakes are not legal for sale or use in California and other states adopting California emission standards while others are CARB exempt and 50 state legal. Check the K&N catalog or website for vehicle applications and specific CARB status for each vehicle and air intake.

I got the K&N for my 2009 Mini Cooper S. Great price from K&N directly and it was shipped and delivered quickly. EASY installation and took all of 5 minutes. I'm a happy camper and good for 50K miles before needing cleaning.

Installation was very easy and only took about 20 minutes. One area needs improvement regarding fit. The metal replacement for the top of the air box should have thicker tabs to fit the back of the lower portion of the air box. Either thicker tabs or slip on spacers would help. My unit had a rattle at idle from the tabs vibrating in the lower air box so I built my own spacers which cured the rattle.
From a performance perspective I couldn't really determine a power increase through seat of the pants evaluation. Fuel mileage has stayed the same as it was. I'm using this unit on a Mini Cooper S Roadster and I consistently get 37 to 40 MPG and I don't baby the car. I also have a Quicksilver exhaust system installed.
The intake sound is very good and the blow off on the turbo is more noticeable than stock.

Overall, I'm satisfied with the purchase.

My first experience with K&N was a filter on my 1990 Porsche Carrera 4. It was new then and I was a chronic participant in both Road-Race-Tracks and Autocross. I installed the K&N Filter on the suggestion of a fellow driver and the results were immediately noticeable. This incredible machine accepted the filter as if it were OEM. I proceeded to the regional championship in autocross for 2 years.

I now own a 2002 Mini Cooper S. This afternoon I installed a K&N Typhoon Air handling system and once again, the difference was immediate and very noticeable.

I am a tried and true K&N user and fan, as proven over the years. It's a bit mind blowing to get this much improvement from a reasonably priced product.

Thanks K&N for making my driving experience better than it already was.
