This induction kit has been developed to fit Mini (Generation 3) vehicles fitted with a Bosch intake sensor part Number: 0 281 006 597. Before purchasing this item please use the photo guide on this page to correctly identify the intake sensor fitted to your vehicle.
Forge Motorsport have been at the forefront of Mini tuning since 2006, and proud sponsor of the Mini Challenge in the UK which sees our performance parts fitted to both the R56 and F56 generations of Mini, across the entire grid.
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.
Compliment your Forge Motorsport induction kit with the mandrel bent high flow turbo intake pipe FMHFIP1 which eliminates flow restrictions associated with the OEM plastic pipe and resonator.
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.
- 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.
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.

I actually ordered the wrong kit originally so I would suggest double-checking your MAF before ordering. Anyway, the kit came in great shape and installed easily. I'm using it in conjunction with the hard-pipe replacement. The intake sound is nice and the engine pulls much better than before. It's very noticeable at higher speeds and passing as air flows through the duct much better at speed. The kit comes with cleaning directions for 3 different types of filters and doesn't specify which cleaning interval is correct for the attached filter. 20k is what Brandon suggested (It is not the race filter). All and all I would say my experience has been good with all the back and forth. The product is heavy-duty, built extremely well, and performs as expected. I look forward to my future purchases with Forge.

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.
