Dinan Intake F54 F55 F56 F57 F60 MINI  
Dinan Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake for 2015+ F54 F55 F56 F57 F60 MINI Cooper and Cooper S. This Dinan intake replaces the top half of the stock MINI airbox with a carbon fiber box and high flow cylinder shape air filter. This allows the stock air inlet from the grill to stay in place and keep max air coming to the filter. Then there is a hole on the other side of the box to allow more air to come from the headlight area.
Through a bevy of flow bench testing it was quickly determined that the biggest hindrance to improved flow on the stock intake was the factory snorkel. Unfortunately, the snorkel also was the piece that would cause the largest increase in cost to a potential kit. As a result it was quickly abandoned as a potential area of improvement. Instead, attention was turned to finding a way to introduce a secondary inlet for additional air flow. With limited room to work with, traditional secondary ducting was not possible. This in turn led to multiple experiments being conducted on the effectiveness of a possible open air inlet on the upper lid. With different shapes, locations, and sizes of openings being tested, the goal was to ensure that the added secondary inlet did not cause any unwarranted side effects such as an increase in air temps in the system. This is commonplace with open air intake systems where lots of overheated engine bay air is utilized in the intake tract. The results of these Dinan tests showed that a 12 sq./in. opening for additional air on the opposite side of the upper lid from the engine provided a perfect balance of additional volume to assist the factory snorkel all the while not causing an increase in turbo inlet temperatures. This was the case regardless of testing conditions (single/multiple gear pulls, constant speed, 0-100mph runs, etc.).

With more air being pulled into the system, throttle response is improved and additional power is realized in the form of Dinan claims max gains of +5 HP / +5 ft-lbs of torque. The secondary air inlet also allows the intake system to be more audible so the turbo spool and BOV can be appreciated. A stark difference from Dinan's traditional fully sealed systems where induction noise is not nearly as recognizable. Not to be outdone by the increased power and sound, the system is made of immaculate carbon fiber so it looks the role as well. The end result of an optimized lid, an improved filter and thorough testing, yields an incredibly efficient and cost effective solution that you will be hard pressed to beat.

Benefits of the Dinan Carbon Fiber High Flow Air Intake for the MINI F54 Clubman S/JCW F55/F56/F57 Cooper S/JCW F60 Countryman S/JCW and BMW F48 X1 F39 X2 (B46/B48 engines):
