Product Description

This does not fit the 306bhp model

This free flowing single piece CNC mandrel bent pipe is a direct replacement for the OEM plastic intake pipe and restrictive resonator. These parts have been developed at our UK HQ in Gloucester. This high flow intake pipe can be used with the OEM air box or alternatively with the full Forge intake system (FMINDF56). The intake pipe features CNC machined outlets therefore, any OEM plug-in parts (i.e. blow by heater and vacuum take off) are a no-hassle direct fit.

Designed as a direct replacement for the brittle OEM plastic boost pipes used on the Mini F56 JCW models. Manufactured in Aluminium tube with CNC machined couplers and smoothed formed mandrel bent aluminium single piece pipe work with hand TIG welded couplers providing an unrestricted internal flow. High quality silicone hoses are also included.

To ensure an OEM quality fit, both hard pipes have been carefully contoured to fit in the restricted space between the engine and chassis. No further modifications are necessary to the bodywork or pipework.

  • Larger diameter giving increased flow compared to OEM
  • All parts supplied to replace the entire OEM boost pipe system
  • Reduced number of joins over OEM
  • CNC machined couplers
  • Mandrel bent single piece aluminium pipework
  • Minimal airflow disruption
  • Black powder coated finish
  • All fitting hardware supplied
  • The Forge silicone hoses in this kit have been designed to include an expensive inner liner of modified silicone known as Fluorosilicone
  • This means the hoses are suitable to be used with  either modern long-life coolants, Organic Acid Technology coolants (O.A.T.) or air containing oil mist
  • The construction of the hoses has been engineered to exceed that of the OEM fitments, and will enhance any engine bay both technically and aesthetically
  • The use of a Fluorosilicone liner ensures that Forge silicone hoses are the clear market leader
  • Lifetime warranty*

"I am amazed at how many places Mini has tried to restrict the airflow in the F56 (and I’m sure previous) design. I can count at least three places to impede airflow on the stock F56; up pipe, downpipe, mid-pipe, and exhaust. Add one more place to the list, the stock intake pipe, yep, another resonator. The huge bulge on the stock pipe is yet another place to impede air flow.The Forge hard pipe eliminates the stock resonator blocking air flow and really opens up the turbo"

Fits perfectly sounds great

I've just had this installed on my 1.5T Manual paired with the uprated intercooler, stock airbox with the BMC F1 filter.

Can confirm more pffff and shhhhh noises when you pull hard, especially audible near low walls like on the toll gate, just ludicrous sound, you can feel more air going through eh eh.

Must say if you have an Auto, i don't think you can enjoy the sounds that much.

Also, i can hear the sound when you change gears with windows closed, before you couldn't hear much.

Sound aside, in terms of performance seems a bit more mean kick in 1st and 2nd but i just got the intercooler installed at the same time so hard to tell what did what now.

Love the aesthetics of the pipe, super well made and even my mechanic was super impressed when i got him the kit!

Amazing product, easy to fit if you know what you are doing, gives great blow off sound and induction noise and if you wrap it in gold heat reflective tape it will perform outstandingly in heavy track conditions

Do not use aggressive (acidic) car cleaning products, particularly traffic film remover solutions or shampoos to clean your intercooler, radiator, or oil cooler. The use of these products can damage Forge Motorsport cooling systems and invalidate your warranty. These are often found at car washes. A light, warm, soapy solution (free of harsh acidic cleaning compounds) should be used to clean you cooler and thoroughly rinsed away. We recommend that you should inspect your product on a regular basis for bent and/or crushed fins. Any bent fins should be carefully straightened to allow ambient air to pass through the core face. At the time of installing your Forge radiator, an approved coolant must be used and added to the coolant system. Be sure you never mix coolant and always use distilled water.

This warranty does not apply to any defect in the goods arising from fair wear and tear, wilful damage, accident, negligence by you or any third party, use otherwise than as recommended by the supplier, failure to follow the supplier’s instructions, or any alteration or repair carried out without the supplier’s approval.

Hi there. I am looking at upgrading my air filter in my mini JCW (2019) and was toying with either upgrading just the filter or the intake pipe as well. However, my car is the LCI model and I just wanted to check whether this part will just be a straight replacement in my car? I can see there is a forge intake for pre LCI and LCI models but wanted to check whether this pipe is standard across the board. Many thanks

hello , yes this will fit the LCI
