Description

Product Description

After over a year in our R&D department finalising the design, fit, and finish, Forge are proud to present a carbon fibre intake for the 1.8 and 2.0 TSI EA888 engines. It combines a highly unique, desirable and attractive look with an ability to offer real-world horsepower increases. Although the VW/Audi group got their intake pretty good, we were able to force feed even more cold air into our intake by running it the full width of the slam panel, and exploiting the cold air ducts that VW/Audi put in from the factory, but don’t use.

The genuine carbon fibre is finished in high gloss; this results in a true premium product for your car which far exceeds other intakes at the same price point, and embarrasses those priced even higher. It offers greater sound from the engine, particularly when on boost, and our product testers have reported a more responsive throttle too. The filter element itself is provided by Pipercross, and is fully serviceable or replaceable if necessary. In our testing, it was the only filter type that was able to offer adequate filtration to the engine, whilst still being capable of flowing enough air to offer an increase in horsepower and torque.

The kit comes complete with everything you need for installation, which can be carried out in around 30 minutes, including a set of full colour instructions.

 

We have now developed an inlet hose to support vehicles that use a MAF sensor, make sure to select the approriate inlet hose options when purchasing. The MAF inlet hoses are shown below. The image on the left is what your stock engine bay should look like if you have a MAF sensor inlet, if you have the circled part on your vehicle then you will need to purchase the MAF hoses option on the inlet hose dropdown. Any queries on this be sure to contact us to confirm.

⭐ This is a great intake, perfect for my Audi TT. Great sound and performances. Perfect service ⭐

⭐ Excellent intake kit, installed on my mk7 R the other day and build quality is good fits perfect and makes such a difference in sound, can hear the turbo spool a lot more ⭐

Some VW Golf Mk7’s have a secondary air intake pipe connected to the side of the stock airbox. If you have an aftermarket intake kit that does not cater for this, then simply fit our secondary air flow kit to the end of the pipe to allow the air to be filtered. The secondary air intake pipe can be seen in the below image. 

 

*Please note - the Pipercross filter is excluded from the Forge lifetime warranty - This will not fit Audi S3 facelift 2017 onwards*

Designed for performance and reliability, our intercooler fits in the stock location meaning cooling is radically improved over OEM. Our test Golf Mk7 GTI achieved gains of up to 16bhp more* without any other modifications whilst also demonstrating a consistent 25-30°C temperature drop* over stock on the dyno, with all runs performed on the same day with only a 2°C variation in ambient temperature over the runs (in fact it was 2°C hotter when we tested the Forge core). You can also see the temperature drop comparison of the stock and Forge cores in the graph below. e.

One of the easiest upgrades you can make to your vehicle is the utilisation of the Forge panel filter. The filter is made using a high-quality, high-flow, synthetic nanofiber filtration media which is then pleated to maximise the effective surface area which in turn increases air flow. This was tested up against many other medias to where we found the synthetic nanofiber filtration media outperformed all others. 

Another brilliantly simple and cost effective upgrade for this application is our turbo blanket. Designed by the Forge development team on the Forge VW Golf MK1 race car in the harshest of environments and exceeding all expectations, the Forge turbo blanket is designed to assist in the protection and prolonging the life of the engine components.

Another performance enhancing and cost effective upgrade is our high flow inlet hose. The high flow intake hose eliminates the highly restrictive plastic 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.

Warranty

Warranty Infomation

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.

For further information, please call our customer service team on +44(0)1452 380999 or email info@forgemotorsport.co.uk.

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.
