The AEM intake is at the forefront of Gen 2 MINI induction kits. Whereas the standard airbox uses a feed from aside the headlight, the AEM utilises the bonnet scoop as well as the OEM feed. Typically your MINI will come with a plastic grill which blocks the majority of the air going into the engine bay.
A cold air feed is attached to the underside of your bonnet and then feeds the enclosed box at the back of the engine bay.
If you are unsure on wether or not your car is fitted with a MAF sensor, please contact us.
