In many cases MINI takes steps to help hide the true soul of a turbo. The boost tubing is no exception. MINI engineers attempted to remove some turbo and boost noise by placing, of all things, a muffler in the boost tubing. In the same fashion as an exhaust muffler is restrictive to performance, so is this! ALTA product designers created a simple, attractive way to remove this muffler and increase performance.
The ALTA Turbo Hot Side Boost Tube replaces the restrictive plastic and rubber OEM piece with a 5-ply silicone, fiber reinforced tube. With a mirror smooth interior surface, larger diameter and tapered transitions, you get a dramatic decrease in restriction and turbulence. By removing the muffler you get a nice, deep, and mellow tone to the turbo and a leap forward in power. The silicone hose is restriction free with its smooth surfaces and larger internal volume.
With the features listed above you get much better boost response and more horsepower! Check out the DYNO CHARTS tab above to see the 10 WHP and10 Ft-Lbs Torque.

ALTA Performance was founded in 1996 when owner Adam Taft, began to sell important performance parts from his parents’ architectural business in Beaverton, Oregon. Two years later, Adam rented space in a small retail store in an industrial part. It was at this point that ALTA Performance hired employees and began supplying inventory. Under the name ALTA Sports, it became the premier Honda tuning and aftermarket specialist in the Portland, Oregon area.
In 2002, ALTA Performance started offering aftermarket Subaru products because the Honda market became oversaturated. The Subaru products were so popular that the company dropped all its other ones. Jeff Perrin joined the ALTA staff as an installer and tech; at this time, ALTA began manufacturing some Subaru parts under the PERRIN brand name. PERRIN and ALTA parts were selling like hotcakes and the company was forced to move once again to a larger warehouse. ALTA Performance added new vehicle lines to its portfolio like the EVO and Scion.
In 2007, ALTA Performance purchased a 25,000 square-foot facility in Hillsboro, Oregon. With room to grow, the brand could now add more production and office staff. For the first time since ALTA started manufacturing auto parts, it had a real showroom for local customers to visit and an in-house dyno for testing and tuning. Today, ALTA Performance continues to grow and has come a long way since its inception in 1996, where all of its inventory literally fit on a baker’s rack.
