AEM, a pioneer in the development of performance intake systems and air filter products, has released a completely new configuration of cold air intake designed to increase the performance of 2011- 2013 Mini Cooper S models with 1.6 liter engines. Available as a do-it-yourself install and upgrade, the 21-721C cold air intake is a new twist on functional and stylish intake engineering.

AEM's 21-721C cold air intake utilizes the fake OEM hood scoop as well as the OEM fresh air duct to bring in cooler outside air for more power. AEM's design includes a low restriction AEM Dryflow Air Filter. A Filter Minder guage is also included to indicate when it's time to clean your reusable synthetic Dryflow air filter.

"Excellent air inlet temperature management ensures consistent and reliable power," says product engineer John Concialdi. "In the 21-721C the fake OEM hood scoop is converted into a real performance feature that ducts ambient air directly to the intake air box. A high temperature silicone foam gasket seals the scoop duct to the air box preventing hot engine compartment air from entering the intake and the OEM lower air duct is also retained for maximum flow to the intake system."

AEM made sure the system would last the life of the car. A high quality, high-temperature material was chosen for the hood scoop and a heat shield placed between the turbocharger and the intake is included for additional heat protection. The 21-721C intake features AEM's washable and reusable Dryflow air filter that requires no oiling and will continue to protect your Mini Cooper S for its life. The entire air intake comes with AEM's limited lifetime warranty.

AEM testing on the the 21-721C cold air intake shows an estimated gain of 6HP @ 5650RPM and an estimated increased in torque of 9ft-lbs @ 2710RPM. The 21-721C cold air intake system is a perfect upgrade for any Mini enthusiast looking to add more power and better performance to their little European street rod.

(Horsepower gains based on similar vehicle dynamometer test. Results will vary.)
