TwinPower 2014-2015 Mini Cooper, Cooper S, and BMW Active Tourer Gets Boost with K&N Air Filter

Reusable Air FilterThe Mini has a long and influential production history dating back to 1959. John Cooper, owner of the Cooper Car Company and builder of race cars, saw the potential to create a performance car out of the Mini and after appealing to British Motor Corporation (BMC) management the Mini Cooper and Mini Cooper S were born in 1961. These days the Mini marque is owned by German auto manufacturer BMW and the Mini Cooper shares a platform with the BMW Active Tourer series.

As part of a global movement to reduce environmental impact the third generation F56 Mini Cooper, Mini Cooper S, and the BMW Active Tourer series have adopted twin scroll turbocharged, direct injection engines for a combination of power and fuel efficiency. The standard engine for the Mini Cooper Hardtop is a 1.5-liter three-cylinder TwinPower engine which makes considerably more horsepower and torque than the outgoing second generation 2013 R56 Mini Cooper Hardtop. The 2014 Mini Cooper Hardtop, equipped with a smaller engine, is said to accelerate from 0-60 mph 2.3 seconds faster than the 2013 model. It goes without saying that the 2.0-liter TwinPower turbo engine used in the Mini Cooper S makes more power, and accelerates even quicker than the base model.

ChartOwners of 2014 and 2015 Mini Cooper 1.5L, and 2.0-liter Mini Cooper S models can now equip these surprisingly powerful TwinPower engines with a replacement air filter, K&N 33-3025. This reusable air filter is designed to fit into the stock air filter box of 2014-2015 Mini Cooper 1.5L, Mini Cooper S 2.0L, and BMW Active Tourer models without any need for modifications. K&N replacement air filters are made with specially woven cotton gauze. Cotton, by nature, is more breathable than paper, a K&N replacement air filter can flow more air than a typical paper automotive air filter. More air and less restriction for such a highly tuned engine can result in a boost in performance and better acceleration.

Perhaps more exciting than an increase in performance from installing a K&N replacement air filter is the fact that they are also a washable and reusable air filter. The ability to wash and reuse a K&N air filter means that it will pay for itself over time. The K&N washable air filter 33-3025 for 2014-2015 Mini Cooper 1.5L, Mini Cooper S 2.0L, and BMW Active Tourer models with a 1.5L, 2.0L turbo, or 2.0L diesel engine can be washed and made like new using one of the K&N Recharger air filter service kits.

It would be false to assume that an increase in airflow with a K&N high-flow air filter comes at the expense of filtration efficiency and engine protection. K&N engineers place filtration efficiency and dirt retention as a priority when developing a replacement air filter. K&N performs filtration efficiency testing following the internationally recognized ISO 5011 protocol with ISO coarse test dust to ensure that our air filters will provide high airflow without sacrificing engine protection. When tested according to the ISO 5011 protocol, K&N replacement air filter 33-3025 was shown to have a 98.35% overall efficiency rating.

The replacement K&N reusable air filter for 2014-2015 Mini Cooper 1.5L, Mini Cooper S 2.0L, and BMW Active Tourer models with a 1.5L, 2.0L turbo, or 2.0L diesel engine is manufactured in the United States and backed by the K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty.
