Please Note: This kit does not fit the 2018 model Mini F56 Cooper, Cooper S & JCW.
Forge Motorsport have been at the forefront of Mini tuning since 2006, and proud sponsor of the Mini Challenge (www.minichallenge.co.uk) in the UK which sees our performance parts fitted to both the R56 and F56 generations of Mini, across the entire grid.
The Forge Motorsport intake for the latest generation of Mini (chassis F54, F55 and F56) has been developed specifically for the 2.0 petrol engine found in the Cooper S and Cooper JCW, though it will also fit the Cooper 1.5 petrol, as BMW use the same airbox from the factory.
The intake itself features a bespoke aluminium heat shield which doubles as a scoop to direct air from the cold air inlet on the slam panel, and it picks up on the stock mounting locations with rubber grommets to reduce vibration and noise.
Take a look at our video to see the dyno test results and an impressive 10 BHP gain.
The pipe to the filter is hand fabricated and features a precision machined MAF boss so that the cars original MAF can simply be bolted on to the new intake.

The filter is manufactured to Forge’s specifications by Pipercross (www.pipercross.net)
- Washable and reusable design.
- Layered multi-density foam technology.
- Designed and manufactured in Great Britain.
- Improvement in engine power and torque with superior engine protection from dirt and dust ingress.
- Designed to flow stronger for longer.
Finally the intake scoop and hard pipe are finished in hard-wearing crackle black powder coat to give an OEM style finish.
In terms of performance, we have recorded increases of 10bhp with no other changes to the car, as can be seen on the attached video.
Fitting is very straightforward, requires no cutting or modification to the vehicle so it can easily be removed if needs be, and can be completed in 20-30 minutes.
*Please note - the Pipercross filter is excluded from the Forge lifetime warranty*

First of all, communication with Forge was very good. Then, the instructions left are very clear and by taking your time, the installation is easy, a real pleasure to assemble yourself. Finally, the quality of the parts is up to Forge's reputation: impeccable! I really like the look that the air intake gives to the engine block. My engine breathes much better than before. To be very frank, the "woosh" is barely audible, but real people know that this is not the reason for installing an air intake. I note that the engine pickups are more smoother. I advise you to combine the air intake with the Hardpipe, both for performance and visual appearance.

Do not use aggressive (acidic) car cleaning products, particularly traffic film remover solutions or shampoos to clean your intercooler, radiator or oil cooler. The use of these products can damage Forge Motorsport cooling systems and invalidate your warranty. These are often found at car washes. A light, warm, soapy solution (free of harsh acidic cleaning compounds) should be used to clean you cooler and thoroughly rinsed away. We recommend that you should inspect your product on a regular basis for bent and/or crushed fins. Any bent fins should be carefully straightened to allow ambient air to pass through the core face. At the time of installing your Forge radiator, an approved coolant must be used and added to the coolant system. Be sure you never mix coolant and always use distilled water.
