More Noise, More Air, More Power

One of the best ways to get some more power out of your F56 MINI's engine is to increase the volume of cold air available to it. The Craven Speed Cold Air Intake allows massive amounts of cold air to get to our K&N lifelong filter.

You don't need a mechanic, ANYONE can install The CAI

The F56 CAI installs in just a few minutes, with tools you've probably got lying around.

Important Stuff

  • The F56 CAI is designed to fit Third Generation MINIs (F54, F55, F56, F57)
  • The CAI includes all needed hardware and a lifetime K&N Filter
  • The CAI is machined from billet aluminum instead of plastic like the stock airbox

CravenSpeed R53 Cold Air Intake Adapter 01:24

This vid shows the installation procedure of the intake adapter, serving as a 'live' test for durability and practicality. As demonstrated, the new adapter machined from 6061 to include a ribbed connection that is _easily_ fit with the stock or aftermarket intake hose (in this case a Samco Sport hose). Sandwich the body of the intake between the filter housing and the flange on the adapter to create a strong and air-tight connection. Then glide the intake hose over the adapter. Voila!

  1. Cold Air Intake for Gen 3 MINI's

    Excellent Experience Overall 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Mar 2017

    I was a little bummed when my original intake's manufacturer had to delay production, but with just a few emails, I got a partial refund, and got this bad boy instead. Installation took less than 10 minutes, and the effects are noticeable right away. Massive increase in induction noise, power is more accessable, along with the smug grin it put on my face. I would give it 6 stars of I could.

  2. Cold Air Intake for Gen 3 MINI's

    Easiest EVER 5 Star Review

    By far the easiest CAI ever created. It took me longer to get it out of the box then install it in the car. Yet another Craven Speed homerun.
