This is a direct replacement for the aftermarket dealer supplied MINI Cooper JCW intake system. By using the same technology and manufacturing process used for their Cold Air Intake systems ALTA can offer you a superior filter for your JCW! ALTA makes the best filtration technology available to you at a far more affordable price point vs the OEM replacement.
ALTA Performance filters feature a unique two piece design allowing the user to remove the foam filter element for easy cleaning. Easily run the element under a faucet for cleaning and ring out by hand. Simply slip the foam sleeve back over the filter frame and your ready to go.
ALTA foam filters are made of reticulated polyurethane foam which offers a minimal air restriction. The filter element is sprayed with a special oil that adheres to the foam making the poly matrix sticky to retain dirt. Foam filters do not block dirt, they grab it, suffering only minimal drops in air flow as they filter dirt, maintaining air flow levels when other filters would clog
Remove months of oil and grime by simply spraying on this easy to use cleaner. Just let it sit on the filter element for a few moments and simply rise in the sink. Once your filter is dry, just spray on a fresh coat of oil and you are ready to go.
