Hey everybody! Living the MINI life once again. Picked up a 2012 Cooper S. Looks like there's no noisemaker thingy for the N18 engine. How can I get some sweet turbo soundz? Intake? Intercooler resonator delete? Both?

N18 doesn't have a noise maker so no worry there.

If you want the Whoosh sound an intake is the most cost effective way to get that sound. check it out.

An intercooler won't change the intake sound, but I do notice after installing them that the exh tone gets a very slight change.

Intercooler resonator delete, DOS intake, and an atmospheric BOV is what I did. Just recently added a Borla Sport exhaust and straight-piped the resonator. I think it sounds great! There is even a bit of turbo noise out of the exhaust when I am on it hard. Which is almost always.
