As the original developers, engineers and enthusiasts who brought the VAG induction hose line to the market almost 3 years ago, Forge Motorsport is pleased to announce our latest development for the Seat Ibiza 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.
In tests we have carried out we have seen significant improvements in mid range torque by ensuring that the internal surface of the hose is completely smooth and unobstructed. 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.
This hose is suitable for the Mk2 (6K2) Ibiza with AQX and AYP engine codes only. It is possible to identify the code of the engine fitted within your vehicle by removing the plastic engine cover (rotate the plastic bolts securing the cover through 90 degrees) The engine code (three letters) should then become visible on the left hand side or rear of the engine (depending on application) as you are stood at the front of the vehicle. 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.
