Product Description

With the success of FMINDK30 we took the opportunity to revisit the UP GTI and looked to see if we could improve on the 1.0 TSI air flow to the turbo charger. On investigation we could see that the OEM turbo adaptor was very restrictive and was an area in need for improvement. Therefore, our highly skilled development team got to work designing a solution to maximize the capacity by using our CAD system and physical prototypes.

The OEM plastic turbo inlet includes a restrictive ribbed and hollow noise chamber that is designed to disturb the air flow and reduce induction noise, this OEM part has a detrimental effect to the engines performance especially when tuned. For the best possible gains, we removed the chamber allowing us to increase the volume and air flow significantly. Our hose design also has an internal stepped area where it is positioned and joined to the turbo housing, this is to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible from the inlet tract to the turbo.

Several different designs and material choices were tested until we arrived with the product you see here. The construction of FMTIA3 is manufactured from reinforced multi ply silicone which is more durable than the OEM plastic pipe and it will also not suffer from heat soak like other similar products available. With its enlarged capacity and less restrictive surface area it routes air directly into your turbo charger and allows a greater volume of air to be compressed, this can have a positive effect on accelerating your vehicle after long deceleration or in between gear changes due to more air being kept within the inlet tract to the turbo charger.

One significant feature of FMTIA3 is its compatibility with vehicles equipped with and without the PCV system integrated into the existing turbo intake, the early engines do not have the breather system in place from the fuel tank to the elbow. We supply the necessary hardware to blank of the elbow spouts if its required to fit the turbo inlet adaptor to the earlier engine revision

The one way valve and coupler adaptor are also supplied so the elbow can be installed to the newer revised engine. The FMTIA3 is also compatible with the factory air box, however for the best performance results we recommend using our intake systems for your particular chassis application.


This is a product which is essential when tuning the 1.0 TSI engine, if its either stage one or stage two tuning we have seen consistent gains from 3-5 bhp depending on the vehicles state of tune.

This is a straightforward yet very effective power increasing modification that can be fitted with basic tools and has a typical installation time of around 60 minutes. As with all Forge products it includes a full set of comprehensive installation instructions to make fitting as straightforward as possible.

  • The Forge silicone hoses in this kit have been designed to include an expensive inner liner of modified silicone known as Fluorosilicone.
  • This means the hoses are suitable to be used with either modern long-life coolants, Organic Acid Technology coolants (O.A.T.) or air containing oil mist.
  • The construction of the hoses has been engineered to exceed that of the OEM fitments, and will enhance any engine bay both technically and aesthetically
  • Increased capacity 
  • No engine check lights (EML)
  • Increased air flow
  • Lifetime warranty*

Product itself is really good, but instructions incredibly poor. I assume they're generic across the VAG range but it was wrong for the Fabia 1.0 TSI.

Be careful if you have an Audi A1, the original turbo elbow does not come out! You have to break it.

I bought it for a 1.0 TSI CHZJ. It's pretty easy to install and also gives a nice 'breathing' sound.

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.

Any advice for installation on LHD cars? Because the brake master cylinder is very close to the original turbo adapter bolts and it is quite difficult to access.

hello , im sorry we have no fitting instructions for the LHD model , i would recommend following our instructions on line for the RHD version to see if you can remove the part in question before purchasing the turbo elbow itself.
