*Please be aware that if your vehicle has the below MAF sensor on the inlet then this intake will not fit your vehicle, we currently do not offer an alternative for MAF vehicles*
Forge are proud to present the latest high performance intake for the popular 1.5 TSI Evo engine found in a large selection of vehicles from the VW, Audi, Skoda, and Seat range.
This kit features a Forge Ram Air high flow, pleated, synthetic nanofiber filtration filter, that has been manufactured for optimum size and fit to the available space giving superior flow and filtration with enhanced breathing for the 1.5 turbo charged engine. It also features a larger surface area than the stock filter and many competitors’ alternatives.
The intake diameters on these air intakes have been carefully tuned to provide exactly the correct quantity of air ensuring solid consistent power gains throughout the rev range without any loss of low-end torque. The pipework is specifically designed to feed the turbo without interruption. The benefit of this is a gain of induction acoustics under acceleration, which improves the driving experience and adds a bit more drama to the TSI EVO engine.

As with all our intakes we design, high air flow is considered absolutely paramount, thus, we endeavoured to incorporate a large bore silicone high flow pipe with turbo inlet adaptor included. This helps to aid the engines performance and air flow in several ways. Designed in a similar way to a conventional velocity stack, it routes the air more directly into your turbo charger and allows more air than the stock inlet tract to be compressed due to its larger capacity. This can have a positive effect on accelerating your vehicle after long deceleration or between gear changes as more air is being kept within the intake system.
The Forge developed inlet tract has more than a 50% increase in volume with the area at the mouth of the turbo increased to 46%. This, combined with no internal baffles or noise restrictors gives a helping hand to the vehicles acoustic notes and throttle response.
With the use of Solidworks®, our CAD engineers have designed the heat shroud to fit round all the contours of the engine bay. This shroud combined with our specially formulated thermal coatings protects the intake from radiant heat while also guiding the cold air from the OE cold air ducting to the filter and housing.
All of the billet components supplied have been made from 6082 Alloy and then anodised to ensure the alloy has no fatigue and stays without corrosion for years to come.
This kit completed with stainless steel high quality hose clamps has the usual unrivaled performance you would expect from Forge Motorsport.
Each Forge Motorsport intake hose is available in your choice of 3 colours to match the tastes and desired colour themes that you are looking for. Please select your colour choice when ordering.
During testing we have achieved gains of up to 11bhp and 13lb/ft throughout the rev range from 2900 RPM. When installed in conjunction with an engine remap and free flowing exhaust the figure can be far greater as the OEM intake system is restricted on high performance engines. The FMINDK30 combined with either our atmospheric dump valve kit FMDV22 or our recirculating valve kit FMDV30 certainly transforms the whole driving experience and engine note of your 1.5 TSI EVO engine. As ever, this product comes with the Forge Motorsport lifetime warranty on all the hardware supplied, giving you the enthusiasts, the best product for your pride and joy.
- 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 OVER TIGHTEN
When fitting the filter to its counterpart please ensure you do not over tighten the hose clamp connecting them. Doing so could result in the part being crushed, leading to fitment and/or performance issues. The recommended torque setting for this hose clamp is 2-2.4Nm
