Alta AMP-ENG-420 Front Mount Intercooler Mini Cooper R56
A key to making more power on any turbocharged engine is the addition of a high performance air-to-air intercooler. This part in the simplest of terms, cools the air going from the turbo into your engine, much the same as a radiator cools the water inside the engine, by transferring the excess heat way using multiple passages through a core. An ALTA intercooler fits easily to the front of your MINI to maximize cooling.
