Cold Air Intake K&n & Modified Cowling - R52/53 Cooper S
Part No: NMK9053

MINI (2002-Current)
Now is your chance to improve your gas mileage and horsepower at the same time. When a new K&N air filter is used to replace an old dirty stock filter it is possible to see as much as a 10% improvement in gas millage.
Also included is the ABS "Big Air Cowling Partition". This allows a much improved flow of ambient (cold) air into our largest-on-the-market Cold Air Intake systems. It is the same piece that divides the rear of your MINI Cooper S' air box from the cowling area in front of the windshield, except this unit has a large "big air" opening between the two.
The ULTRIK K&N equipped Cold Air Intake System results in cooler and more efficient air delivery to the Cooper 'S' supercharger.

Fits 2002-2006 R53 MINI Cooper S Hardtops and 2005-2008 R52 MINI Cooper S Convertibles.

The filter element in this is a re-usable K&N element known for its excellent filtration, high flow characteristics, long life & outstanding manufacturer's warranty (ten year, one million mile).

The dyno-engineered ULTRIK Cold Air Intake system improves airflow, performance and filtration. Dyno results shows a less restrictive intake delivering cool air means more power from your engine. The ULTRIK cold air box design is backed by the best product warranty in the business. It is your assurance that every performance mile is warranted against damage caused by a failure of an ULTRIK brand component. No one else offers a warranty like this for your performance modifications. We believe it is indicative of our superior product design and reliability. Demand ULTRIK brand for all your performance modifications.

Improved airflow into the supercharger = more horsepower = better performance! The ULTRIK Cooper 'S' Cold Air Intake System improves on existing designs for greater efficiency.

The stainless steel airbox uses a wider design with chamfered base to enable better airflow across the entire filter while providing adequate clearance from other engine compartment devices. The high pressure area at the base of the windshield directs outside air into the airbox through the existing bulkhead opening.

The shape of the airbox frame in conjunction with its bulb type rubber seal provides a positive seal against the underside of the bonnet, eliminating the need for an obtrusive top.

The ULTRIK cold airbox has a removable plate which allows the use of the NMS4006 ULTRIK Titanium front strut brace.

Works well on earlier JCW cars without the the JCW cold air intake system. Not compatible with Automatic transmission Cooper S.

The Cold Air Intake upgrade is one of the most common and simplest performance upgrades you can do to your Mini Cooper and Cooper S. Whether it is a simple filter replacement or a complete Intake Kit, these products are 'bolt-on' solutions with no permanent modifications to the Mini and completely reversible to stock form. Intake upgrades are all about improving the flow of filtered air into the engine. More air means stronger and more efficient combustion and the net result is more power! Intake upgrades are typically more noticeable in the upper rpm range where the stock restrictive intake causes power to fall off. Intake upgrades will typically move the power band closer to redline.
