    The M7 MINI Cooper S Cold Air Intake works by sealing a dual stage foam filter inside of a fully enclosed custom manufactured metal housing. The steel box closes off any path for engine heat from getting to the filter, and provides the highest resistance to heat transfer when compared to other intakes on the market.

    Our dual stage high flow foam filter can be cleaned and re-oiled providing a lifetime of service on your MINI. The over-sized filter gives plenty of filtering capacity without sacrificing airflow on the supercharged Cooper S. The filter attaches to stock intake piping via a velocity stack at the wall of the M7 CAI with a 3" diameter on the filter side to a 2.75" diameter on the engine side. The velocity stack will smoothen out the large amount of air entering the intake tract, improving air flow which results in a more efficient intake system.

    The M7 intake provides the enclosed filter with pressurized, cold air from the cowl area beneath the windshield without requiring you to cut any of your factory parts. This allows your car to be returned completely to stock if needed. With simple hand tools, the intake can quickly be installed on your car allowing you more time to enjoy the ride!

    INCLUDES: Matte black powder coated Cold Air Intake box, installation hardware and a pre-oiled filter.

    Received promptly with good follow up. Followed the detailed instructions and although it took some time, it was relatively straightforward and all the parts fit correctly. Main issue was closing the trunk lid with my tools inside after disconnecting the battery. Had to squeeze into the back seat area and find the release. Performance improved with faster throttle response and wonderful whining noise of the supercharger opening up. Review by Paul (Posted on 9/15/2019)

    Much better than the stock air flow system, makes the supercharger so much louder and Improved gas mileage, not a lot of noticeable power gains but that's to be expected from an intake Review by Ian (Posted on 8/28/2017)

    I recently picked up an ’06 R53 MCS and immediately began the process of sorting through all of the mechanicals. After repairing the common issues, it was time to begin the fun part of adding some HP to unleash the little beast. There are a lot of CAI options out there, but options are even less if you are looking for a quality-made CARB-certified box that improves on the original design of the factory unit. I found this to be a big plus especially since I live in California.
    The installation is basically straight forward and the “Exact-Fit” as stated by M7 makes it that much easier. The 2.75” diameter connection on the engine side allowed the factory rubber boot to fit properly, no stretching, and without issues, Nice! As a plus, I was able to reuse my factory BMW clamps for that clean look. M7, however, does supply all of the necessary hardware including the screw clamps for the boot as well as the larger intake tube for the high flow foam filter.
    Summary: Nice fit, quality made box, high-grade foam filter exceeded my expectations, looks great, and performs/sounds even better. Mash the throttle and the SC R53 becomes a big whiner thanks to M7!
