aFe has released their Stage-2 air intake system for the 2011-2013 MINI Cooper S with the L4-1.6L turbo engine. This Stage-2 intake system produces up to 18HP and 20lbs. x ft. of torque over stock, while outflowing the factory intake by 49%. Included in this system is a washable/reusable "oiled" conical air filter that uses five layers of progressive weave media for maximum air flow. This intake system uses a 16 gauge steel heat shield that is positioned under the factory hood scoop to supply the air filter with cool, dense air for maximum performance.
360 Degree Air Filter:
A huge inverted cone 360 degree round air filter is used for maximum air flow and filtration (98.6% efficient). The PRO 5R performance air filter features 5-layers of progressively finer mesh cotton gauze media and is constructed with 100% polyurethane for long life and multiple cleaning cycles.
Top Mounted Heat Shield Design: aFe developed this heat shield to attach onto the top of the lower half of the factory air box to provide a hassle-free installation utilizing factory mounting locations.
Bump Lock Filter Mounting Design:
The air filter uses a unique bump lock flange design that allows the air filter to securely mount to the heat shield with no hardware.
The intake tube was engineered to fit the MAF sensor perfectly, without the use of a coupler. This eliminates hardware which allows for a simple, quick installation.
