AEM Air Intake Induction System - N14 MINI Cooper S & JCW (Gen 2)
This kit has been designed specifically for the N14-engined R56 MINI to deliver cool air to the K&N air filter supplied, unlike any other R56 intake kit the AEM comes with an air duct, which mounts, to the bonnet making the bonnet scoop functional after removing the plastic grill.
AEM are one of the world's leading performance air intake manufacturers. Founded in the USA over 20 years ago, AEM were one of the first manufacturers who designed performance aftermarket induction systems with specific tube lengths and diameters to take advantage of pressure waves in the inlet tract, and to begin producing induction kits to maximise the cold air entering the combustion chamber to maximise power increases. This quality and perfected design is certainly visible in their MINI intake kit.
The quality of the AEM intake kit is fantastic and that together with the superb power gains is what makes AEM a great induction choice for the serious MINI tuner, the K&N air filter included traps dust and debris through an extremely durable synthetic media, the filter incorporates a metal screen on the outside that enhances airflow and aids in keeping the pleating in the proper position.
In-house dyno testing on a 2012 JCW showed a 21.4bhp gain. Please see the dyno graph in the images.
- Standard JCW airbox with OEM filter - 204bhp
- Standard JCW airbox with ITG filter - 208.4bhp (4.4bhp gained)
- AEM Intake - 225.4bhp (21.4bhp gained)

The AEM kit will give your MINI a slightly louder growl from the engine, accompanied by an improved throttle response.

If you want to fit a strut brace with this induction kit the only strut brace that will fit is the AEM strut brace. This is specifically designed to fit around the induction kit.
If you have a Cooper S you will need a MAF sensor. If you have JCW this will already come fitted with a MAF Sensor.
How do I know if my Mini has a Maf adapter?
All JCW's come with a maf adapter as standard. However the Cooper S does not come with a maf adapter. So if you have a Cooper S you will need a maf adapter.
