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 this muffler and increase performance.
*Better Hose* 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.
*Free Flow* 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.
*Power* With the features listed above you get much better boost response and more horsepower!
