These pipes replace the plastic pipework from the turbo to intercooler and the plastic pipe between the intercooler and throttle body.
The original pipes are very restrictive - the turbo to intercooler pipe is flattened down each side quite severely for no apparent reason. There is plenty of clearance between the block and the chassis for a larger round pipe. The Forge pipe is as big as you can go without the ECU reporting an error. The stock intercooler to throttle body pipe is also restrictive, being ovalised along its length, and manufactured from two pieces glued together making the inside of the pipe non-uniform.
Turbo to intercooler pipe from below showing restriction:
Both the Forge pipes are manufactured from mandrel bent, highly polished aluminium tube and come with all fixings necessary. The intercooler to throttle body pipe can be complimented with our FMKTSCI throttle body hose.
Fits the CCTA and CAWB 2.0 litre petrol turbo engine as fitted to the latest VAG cars.

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.
