The ALTA Cold Air Intake system pulls cold air from the ram-air duct in the grille in addition to pulling it through the vent below the windshield. The air-box seals to the hood and prevents under hood heat from entering the intake airstream. This keeps the filter surrounded by a fresh air bath. Thus reducing inlet air temperatures creating a cooler, denser air charge raising HP, and torque. The ALTA Cold Air Box is formed from laser cut aluminum sheet metal then CNC bent to perfection. Then finished in a rich black texture powercoating for long term protection and an O.E.M. look. The ALTA airbox seals to the underside of the hood preventing under hood heat from entering the intake airstream.

With an ALTA intake system your car will make a throaty, deep tone on throttle that is undeniably modified. You will be able to hear your supercharger whining. Even the stock one. The high flow foam filter reduces intake restriction and increases the surface area from which the engine can ingest clean air. Unlike cotton and gauze type filters, foam filters allow for multi-layer filtration. The ALTA Performance foam based filter will trap dirt within the filter at many different levels. This allows for better particulate restriction and will not reduce HP as the filter gets dirty.

ALTA is the only producer of a Cold Air intake system for the MINI R53 that truly provides a steady supply of cool fresh air! Thanks to a uniquely designed air-box, and smooth black silicone inlet hose, the ALTA Cold Air Intake has proven a 10-12 WHP gain many many times over.
