2009 Mini Cooper S 0-100 with Alta intake & Hot side boost tube upgrade
a 0-100 run and a few other regular driving shots to demonstrate the sound of an Alta CAI from inside the car. I ran with the windows up - otherwise the mic pics up too much wind noise.

Magnaflow custom exhaust Mini Cooper S R53 sound
Just wanted to share this with all the mini enthusiasts out there.
This is a Mini Cooper s (R53) with CAI and custom Magnaflow Exhaust, I bought the muffler number 11366 because it is the shortest one (11", against 14" of most of the other magnaflows) and will fit the space where the OEM "ball" was. The piping job was done in a local shop and I also bought the tips there.
I wanted to put a performance Exhaust on the mini without spending the $800-$1000 dollars necessary for the common "cat-back" Exhausts on the market, so I decided to buy the muffler and have a muffler shop make the custom tubing.
The whole thing cost me around $270 dollars, and I´m satisfied with the result, it is quiet at idle and the noise levels are comfortable inside the cabin if you drive normally. I didn´t want one of those really loud/fart Exhausts but something that will sound good and racing-like when you step on the gas.
The CAI is a GREEN filter with a heat shield I made.
UPDATE(Dec. 2009): installed 15% pulley and ALTA Intercooler diverter, definitely feels different and the SC sounds louder.
I will be posting a video soon.
Alta MINI Cooper Hot Side Turbo Boost Tube / Muffler Delete Pipe / Test Pipe Install
MINI Cooper Hot Side Boost Tube
This is a quick easy, reasonably cheap upgrade that could be done with only a flat head screw driver. Making your daily driver more fun with better fuel economy and faster 0 to 60. The MPG gains won't be huge, but if your car breathes better it goes faster and gets more miles to the gallon.
About the Product:
In many cases MINI takes steps to help hide the true soul of a turbo. The Boost tubing is no exception. MINI engineers attempted to remove some turbo and Boost noise by placing of all things a muffler in the Boost tubing. In the same fashion as an Exhaust muffler is restrictive to performance, so is this! ALTA product designers created a simple, attractive way to remove the this muffler and increase performance.
The ALTA turbo Hot Side Boost Tube replaces the restrictive plastic and rubber OEM piece with a 5-ply silicone, fiber reinforced tube. With a mirror smooth interior surface, larger diameter and tapered transitions, you get a dramatic decrease in restriction and turbulence.
By removing the muffler you get a nice mellow tone to the turbo and a leap forward in power. The silicone hose is restriction free with its smooth surfaces and larger internal volume.
With the features listed above you get much better Boost response and more horsepower! According to Alta's Dyno Charts you get 10 WHP and10 Ft-Lbs Torque.

Audi R8 vs Mini Cooper S
The Audi R8 facing a Mini Cooper S. This was just a fun race, not a real streetrace, because the Mini would then have no chance of winning. The video was captured with a Samsung E-250 mobile phone. You can look at the date of upload that this was quite a while ago. I now have a full HD videocamera. Check out my channel if you like, and maybe you'll susbscribe?
