The ALTA Cold Air Box is formed from laser cut aluminum sheet metal then CNC bent to perfection. Then finished in a rich black texture powdercoating for long term protection and an O.E.M. look. Our air box seals to the underside of the hood preventing under-hood heat from entering the intake air stream.
With an ALTA Intake System, your car will make a throaty, deep tone on throttle that is undeniably modified. You will be able to hear your supercharger whining, both stock and aftermarket.
Our high-flow foam filter reduces intake restriction and increases the surface area from which the engine can ingest clean air. Unlike cotton and gauze type filters, foam filters allow for multi-layer filtration. The ALTA foam based filter will trap dirt within the filter at many different levels. This allows for better particulate restriction and will not reduce HP as the filter gets dirty. » Learn More
ALTA intake filter elements use open cell foam to capture dust and dirt. Washable and reusable, ALTA foam filter elements extend the life of your vehicle. Foam filter elements offer superior performance with minimal airflow restriction and amazing dust holding capacity.
Powdercoated for protection against the elements, the textured finish will look awesome for years to come. The ALTA Cold Air Intake System for R53 6-speed manual is available in black or red texture powdercoating.
ALTA Performance warrants to the original purchaser, all ALTA products to be free from defects in material and workmanship within a sixty (60) months period from the date of purchase. *Some exclusions apply

This test was done by a customer of ours where their car started life as a MCS with a 19% smaller SC pulley, ECU tuning, header and catback exhaust installed. They then installed just the ALTA Air box and filter and these are the results of that. This gains roughly 7HP and 5ft-lbs of TQ. For those looking for more power check out the Cold Air intake System, these are worth 12+WHP.
