I would say NO . you will just be taking in hot air through this filter and that will just reduce you bhp .
I would look for a sealed air intake system like the Dave F .

A deflaped JCW with an ITG filter does the trick too. Nice sucking noise at low revs. thumbs up

Avoid buying open air filters because you will get heat soak


Have one with a box/cover

What Joss has done is perfect if you want to keep the stock look

Plus its cheaper to do a deflap and add a different panel filter

The 1st Gen MINIs had a flap in the airbox to increase airflow when you put your foot down

The Deflap is involves moving the spring/hinge so it stay open all the time

Simple mod

Its only on the JCW Airbox. It has an exra intake hole at the back which draws air from the grill under the windscreen. that hole is where the flap is.

The M7 is fully open to that grill area and draws huge gulps of air from there but the Dictators over at MT will tell you the only way is Dave F. But I don't see it myself! A well installed M7 has to be as good! I'd like to find a road driver good enough to use that extra 0.5bhp! Lol

De flapped jcw box was the way I was going to go but the jcw air boxes can be hard to get so went for the Dave f instead .
