NM Engineering Intake System - Carbon Fiber Hardpipe | MINI Cooper S | N18 Engine

NM Engineering introduces the Carbon Fiber Hi-Flow intake system for the turbocharged MINI Cooper S and JCW with the N18 motor. Unlike some competitors the NM performance intake features an integrated and much larger Carbon Fiber turbo inlet tube (hardpipe). The stainless steel brackets, hardware and silicone couplings were all designed, engineered and manufactured to fit and perform. The 'Open-Air-Box' system gives you an abundance of unrestricted 360° air source compared to the OEM's sealed air box with flat filter and tube fed air source. During R&D, NM installed temperature probes around the engine compartment and the gauge showed the inside temperature matched the ambient after vehicle sped past 20 mph. Logging the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor also showed that open-air-box intake generated a higher volume (gr/sec) of air going through the sensor. So when NM had to choose between (a) cooler air at all speeds with limited air source, vs. (b) cooler air at 20~ mph. with unlimited air source, the choice was pretty obvious. The blue or black hardpipe kits feature CNC mandrel bent aluminum pipe and finished with durable textured powder coat. Our Carbon Fiber hardpipe features 100% carbon fiber composite material to be lightweight and for great appearance. Utilizing vacuum bag manufacturing methods produces a part that has consistent wall thickness, while avoiding excessive resin build-up. Also included is a pre-oiled and cleanable NM filter. C.A.R.B. Exempt: D-236-15


Due to an ECU Change, NM Engineering has 2 different brackets that hold the fresh air inlet pipe. Bracket choice will depend on MINI production date. Check your production date on the sticker in your door jam.
