ALTA Performance, has once again set the bar very high for the competition! The ALTA Turbo MINI Cold Air Intake not only adds a proven 10WHP and 10ft-lbs of torque to your 2007+ MINI Cooper Turbo S and JCW, but it also unlocks the sound from your turbo! The ALTA Five-Ply Silicone Elbow included with the intake is rated for 200psi, and 400 degrees. Like other ALTA products this part is over-built to ensure a lifetime of trouble free use. This is one of the key features to this intake as the bend provides the proper MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor reading and ensures no Check Engine Lights.
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 turbo spooling and hear your blow off valve every time it opens. Even the stock one. The ALTA Turbo MINI Air Box was designed with light weight aluminum. This provides a stiff, strong, and corrosion proof shroud for the ALTA high flow foam filter and a connection point for the fresh air tube. With a black wrinkle finish powder coat is applied to keep things looking clean and finished for that show appearance under the hood.
Included with all ALTA intakes is a high flow foam filter. ALTA Performance filters feature a unique two piece design allowing the user to remove the foam filter element for easy cleaning. Easily run the element under a faucet for cleaning and ring out by hand. Simply slip the foam sleeve back over the filter frame and you re ready to go. This ALTA intake is designed to remove the OEM hood scoop plug/screen. During initial testing it was found that removing this provides consistent ambient temps to the filter. While it s not a traditional "Cold Air Intake" where the filter is located in a fender well, the ALTA Cold Air Intake is just as good as it still gets a constant flow of ambient cold air. This is just one of the reasons why this intake has dyno proven HP!

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.
