A replacement turbo actuator for vehicles based on the MK6 Golf chassis with the 2.0 TSi engine, fitted with the IHI turbo. However, this unit will NOT work on IHI turbos that have the actuator welded to the turbine housing as well as the rod end permanently riveted to the flapper arm. This unit will only work on turbos that have the actuator bolted to the turbine housing and the removable arm. The OEM turbo/actuator will need to be inspected first to determine if this unit will work.
This product is built with a predetermined actuator spring suitable for at, or slightly above factory boost levels. The actuator can be assembled with a stiffer spring upon request. Please contact us directly concerning this process. Whilst this product is designed and built as a replacement part or with the intention of increasing the boost output of a turbocharged system. We cannot guarantee compatibility with all applications, nor the ability to increase the boost output beyond a level that is within the parameters set by the engine-management-system of the given vehicle at the time of installation, whether that system is factory or aftermarket.
Forge Motorsport nor any of it’s authorised distributors can assume any responsibility for any adverse effects resulting from the installation and tuning of this product onto a vehicle whose engine-management-system, whether factory or aftermarket, is not capable of allowing for the desired level of adjustment. While Forge Motorsport is happy to supply you with an actuator capable of holding boost beyond that of your factory unit we are in no way capable of knowing nor suggesting that your vehicle's engine or related systems are capable of supporting or surviving the stresses of such elevated boost pressure.
After requests for a very durable, fit and forget version of our actuators that would withstand the rigors of marine corrosion or simply would not tarnish, we have now added the option of ordering any of our piston design actuators with stainless steel bodies and external components/fixings. This option does incur a surcharge and will be shown when added to your basket.
In The Box:
1 x FMACVAG08 Actuator
1 x 120mm of 4mm Vacuum Tube
1 x 6mm E Clip
1 x Forge Sticker
This actuator is built with a Green coded spring as standard. If you require the FMPACTUN spring tuning kit seen in the associated products below, you will need to select the Diaphragm Type 2, 049 option.

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.
