This product is ideally fitted in conjunction with the product FMDV1 (1.2/1.4 TSI Dump valve and fitting kit). If purchased as a stand-alone product the turbo inlet hose will push up against the adjacent OE charge pipe, and a trim to the turbo inlet leg of the FMINDK14 induction hose may be required to avoid creasing.

This is the second product to be released in our new ‘Hi-Flow’ range. With this unique sleek design, you can expect to see a carbon fibre housing that flows beautifully along the engine bay, giving you more horse power and torque, and hopefully an appreciation for the care and time that has gone into the production. It includes a billet machined coupler made to exact tolerances at our machine shop in Gloucester, UK, ensuring a perfect fit.
The hose is available in red, blue or black and is supplied with all necessary hose clamps.
Following the success of our carbon fibre intake for the Mk7 Golf we knew that we wanted to continue with our ‘Hi-Flow’ range and bring out an affordable option to the 1.2/1.4 TSI market.
We conducted intense market research, speaking to tuners and owners of the vehicles we wanted the intake to fit. We concluded that rather than creating an entire carbon fibre intake system, the best product to create would be a carbon fibre scoop and airbox lid that fits with original airbox.
With this idea in mind we started the design. Using industrial foam and aluminium the concept design was created. With these components, we could identify the best way to fit the scoop, join it to the air box and mount it to the vehicle.
Once the first concept was completed our engineers used the latest technology to create a 3D rendering of how we wanted the intake to look. Throughout the drawing process we ran simulated air flow tests, this way we could ensure that we would create a product with the most efficient flow possible. The carbon fibre prototype was made and fitted to the vehicle. The design is one of the most aesthetically pleasing and practical on the market
To ensure we deliver the best quality product we could and following the extensive design and development of this intake, we enlisted the services of one the world’s leading Carbon fibre manufacturers, who’s products range from F1 aero, carbon fibre car bodies and aircraft wings! Tooling was then CNC machined from billet aluminium to ensure the finished product was flawless. This enables us to create a perfect airbox using the autoclave technique during the manufacturing process of the 2x2 twill carbon fibre.
Rather than using a vacuum (also known as liquid infusion) to draw the resin through the mould then pulling the raw carbon fibre cloth to the mould shape, a technique known as Autoclave is used in the manufacturing of this beautifully designed product. This involves the use of up to 10 bar of pressure that is blown into a 100% billet mould to force it out. This high amount of pressure ensures the material is fully in contact with the surface of the mould. Therefore, making sure the weave is tight, solid and strong; this process also ensures there are no imperfections in the product. The mould is then heated to cure the resin which in turn gives a tensile strength up to eight times stronger than mild steel but at a fraction of the weight. Having spent so much time on the carbon and silicone development we then turned to the equally important aspect of filtration.
Going with the Flow
With the lid and scoop design completed we moved on to the hose and filter. There is no point creating such an efficient system for it then to be restricted by the OEM hose and filter. Therefore, for the filter we engaged our partners and experts in Filtration Control, Pipercross!
With over 25 years’ experience in both the domestic and motorsport market they recommended a multi-layer foam construction filter, these filters work perfectly in our ‘Hi-Flow’ range. The large filter provided, flows 30% more air than stock and fits snuggly within the housing. This combination is second to none.
The Forge Motorsport high flow intake hose that is mated to the carbon airbox eliminates the highly restrictive plastic and noise restricting inlet pipe, and replaces it with our smooth bore multi-ply silicone hose which increases air flow, improving efficiency and performance. This equates to increases of up to 10hp which is a remarkable gain for an easy to fit bolt on modification. The Forge silicone hose in this kit has been designed to include an expensive inner liner of modified silicone known as Fluorosilicone.

Fits very well, take note if you do not have the dump valve to suit the Seat Leon 1.4 Sc as the plastic on the stock piece does seem to dig in to the hose as they have stated. Overall amazing product, looks amazing, sounds amazing and gives a great overall feel to the car.
Excellent bit of kit, looks, sounds and extra performance. Definitely 5**
Great sound and look! Really a big upgrade for the esthetics
It fits perfectly. The quality of the materials is 5 stars.The engine now produces superb sporting sound. Engine performance has definitely improved. It's definitely another car.
Just perfect. I've now this amazing engine sound. A bit tricky to remove the stock plastic air box due to a screw behind the turbo.

DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN
When fitting the filter to its counterpart please ensure you do not over tighten the hose clamp connecting them. Doing so could result in the part being crushed, leading to fitment and/or performance issues. The recommended torque setting for this hose clamp is 2-2.4Nm
The majority of Forge Motorsport products come with a limited lifetime warranty (brakes pads excluded). All warranty claims must be accompanied by the original proof of purchase to enable us to help you. Failure to supply this proof will result in your claim or enquiry being denied.

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.
