This hose fits directly to the turbo on the 1.8T 210 and 225 engines. It is made from high temperature resistant flourosilicone compound and nomex reinforced to withstand the high pressures that may be experienced on tuned engines. This is the perfect replacement for the OEM hose which has a history of premature failure. Available in Ocre colour only.
Please be aware that these hoses were patterned from right hand drive vehicles.Whilst we believe these to be correct for left hand drive vehicles we suggest that you visually check their suitability, as replacement items, with those fitted to your own vehicle, before attempting installation.
Please Note: In line with our policy to constantly review, revise, and improve our product range, the appearance of the product you receive may differ from the one advertised.
This is a stiffer hose then normal and it is a very tight over the corresponding pipe and turbo output.
Considering the built in available factory adjustments possible, the hose dimensions are not 100% accurate.
The ends of the hose are molded in such a way that trimming the length of the hose is not possible.
As a result, the radius bend of the hose is with a crimp in what should have been a smooth radius bend.
This could be corrected in manufacture by providing a deeper socket in the hose on each end of the hose by something on the order of 1/4 to 3/8 inches.
It remains to be seen if this will cause a problem of dependability in use.
This is a highly stressed hose and needs to be mounted perfectly. It is not now and because of these shortcomings cannot be.
It is very apparent that the manufacturer put exceptional effort into it and I do appreciate the effort but it is not a perfect part and needs some perfecting.
The hose is nice and stiff and holds up under pressure. It only comes in one color which is perfect for me it matches all my other Red Forge hoses. I can’t believe how much quicker I spool having all of my stock line replaced. I always order directly from Forge because you have the option of adding the hose clamp kit for each piece.

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.
