As the original developers, engineers and enthusiasts who brought the VAG induction hose line to the market, Forge Motorsport is pleased to announce a completely retooled, redesigned, and reengineered range of induction hoses for all VAG 1.8T applications. We have spent the last year co-developing a range of vehicle specific hoses with silicone manufacturer SiliconHoses.com, guaranteed to rival the best offerings from any other manufacturer on the market today; in terms of quality, price, and most importantly, performance.
This hose is also an induction hose for 1.8T Golf's, Jetta's, GTI's, New Beetle Turbo S's, Skoda Octavia and Seat Leon (not Leon Cupra R). This however fits all of the following engine codes on the above mentioned vehicles: - APH - AJQ - AGU - ATC Engine Code. It is possible to identify the code of the engine fitted within your vehicle by removing the plastic engine cover by rotating the plastic bolts securing the cover by 90 degrees. The engine code (made up of three letters) should then become visible on the left hand side or rear of the engine (depending on your application) as you are stood at the front of the vehicle. If you require help in finding your engine code, please contact us.
These hoses have been designed and manufactured with the utmost care given to quality and performance. The silicone compound used in the construction of the hoses is of the highest sheer strength available and is hand-laid with a polyester reinforcement fabric. The layering of the hoses is far more uniform and consistent than of that from any other manufacturer which improves the overall structural integrity of the hoses up to 50%. The internal surface of the hose is completely smooth and unobstructed and the internal volume of this hose has been increased to provide the highest level of airflow at all points within the power band. We have also taken extra care to ensure consistency between each hose produced, and that each hose includes all of the necessary ports and provisions required for each engine code and application as have often been missing on hoses from other manufacturers.
Dyno testing has been performed, by independent reviewer and Forge dealer NGP Racing on their in-house DynoJet dynamometer. Testing was performed on a 2003 Jetta 1.8T with an AWP engine code. The vehicle modifications include: - EVO Cold Air Intake. - TT 2.5" Turbo-Back Exhaust. - Forge 004 Blow-off Valve. - N75J Valve. - APR 93 Octane Chip. For the benefit of those without engine software modifications, testing was conducted with stock ECU software and also APR's 93 octane software. Dyno runs 1 and 3 compare a baseline (OEM hose) to the addition of the Forge induction hose using the stock ECU as programming. Dyno runs 2 and 4 compare a baseline (OEM hose) to the addition of the Forge induction hose using the APR 93 Octane programming. The results show a 5.82 WHP increase using the stock programming and a 12.26 WHP increase using the APR 93 Octane programming with an SAE correction factor.
Each Forge Motorsport Induction Hose is available in your choice of 3 colours to match the tastes and desired colour themes that you are looking for. Please select, from the options list above, your colour choice when ordering. 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.
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
The use of a Fluorosilicone liner ensures that Forge silicone hoses are the clear market leader.

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.
