M7 Speed introduces their new Cold Side Lower Intercooler Elbow for all Generation 2 MINI Coopers equipped with a 1.6 liter turbocharged engine. This new OE replacement elbow is made from the same high quality four-ply fabric reinforced 100% silicone material as our other very popular silicone hose products. While the shape and size match the factory piece the M7 elbow differs in one big way. Since the M7 part is made on mandrel tooling the bend is much smoother and larger than the convoluted molded rubber OE part. .
This is a direct factory OE replacement part with no modifications required for installation. It replaces the OE rubber elbow that fails over time because of age, reaction with oils, high boost applications and environmental damage or punctures from underbody run-ins with road hazards. Perfect for high performance MINIs who are running increased boost. Designed to withstand up to 58 PSI [4.0 BAR] of charge air pressure. The kit comes complete with one silicone elbow and two high quality lined stainless steel clamps. The elbow is easy to install by any moderately skilled DIY car enthusiast using basic hand tools.
