After over a year in our R&D department finalising the design, fit and finish, Forge Motorsport are proud to present a carbon fibre intake for the latest 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 ‘dry’, meaning unlaquered, just like the carbon fibre you see in motorsport applications. This requires a higher quality fibre with no defects, and a higher attention to detail when the intake is manufactured. 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.
Please Note: In line with our policy to constantly review ,revise and improve our product range, the product you receive may differ from the one advertised.
I just installed this intake and I have to say I was impressed with both the fitment and the instructions. Everything went smoothly and it looks great. I also like the subtle increase in sound under acceleration.
