Mini Cooper S R53 JCW – Airbox Intake Modification

I wanted to replace the stock air pipe, as it contains a resonator which keeps it silent. It’s also not optimised, leaving room for improvement.

Used 2 aluminium joiners/couplers and flexible piping. Very happy with this cost effective result! Also, I love the supercharger whine 🙂

I also ordered a K&N RU-3190 filter, I didn’t know the previous owner fitted a Pipercross PX1875. In the end I sold the K&N as the fitment wasn’t good.
