Going forwards, I will now assume you are potentially in the market for me to whet your whistle! I have put together our most most popular air induction kits the R50, R52, R53, R56 and F56 below - but you know where we are to find out about any other Mini model you may have!


These induction kits replace the standard air intake system, swapping it with a setup designed to maximize airflow into the engine, paving the way for that exhilarating burst of speed and efficiency.

R52/R53 Mini Cooper S - Airtec Induction Kit

The AIRTEC kit is a great example of an enclosed induction kit. Being enclosed, you limit the amount of heatsoak being drawn into the engine, as the colder the air going in, the more power you can get out of the car. Plus, it does look great with a large foam AIRTEC branded filter and viewing glass.
