*Please note – This will not fit Audi S3 facelift 2017 onwards*
After over a year in our R&D department finalising the design, fit, and finish, Forge are proud to present a carbon fibre intake for the latest 1.8 and 2.0 TSI EA888 engines. It combines a highly unique, desirable and attractive look with an ability to offer real-world horsepower increases. Although the VW/Audi group got their intake pretty good, we were able to force feed even more cold air into our intake by running it the full width of the slam panel, and exploiting the cold air ducts that VW/Audi put in from the factory, but don’t use.
The genuine carbon fibre is finished in high gloss; this results in a true premium product for your car which far exceeds other intakes at the same price point, and embarrasses those priced even higher.
It offers greater sound from the engine, particularly when on boost, and our product testers have reported a more responsive throttle too. The filter element itself is provided by Pipercross, and is fully serviceable or replaceable if necessary. In our testing, it was the only filter type that was able to offer adequate filtration to the engine, whilst still being capable of flowing enough air to offer an increase in horsepower and torque.
The kit comes complete with everything you need for installation, which can be carried out in around 30 minutes, including a set of full colour instructions.
We have now developed an inlet hose to support vehicles that use a MAF sensor, make sure to select the approriate inlet hose options when purchasing, the MAF inlet hoses are shown below. The image on the left is what your stock engine bay should look like if you have a MAF sensor inlet, if you have the circled part on your vehicle then you will need to purchase the MAF hoses option on the inlet hose dropdown. Any queries on this be sure to contact us to confirm.
â This is a great intake, perfect for my Audi TT. Great sound and performances. Perfect service â
â Excellent intake kit, installed on my mk7 R the other day and build quality is good fits perfect and makes such a difference in sound, can hear the turbo spool a lot more â
Some VW Golf Mk7’s have a secondary air intake pipe connected to the side of the stock airbox. If you have an aftermarket intake kit that does not cater for this, then simply fit our secondary air flow kit to the end of the pipe to allow the air to be filtered. The secondary air intake pipe can be seen in the below image.
PLEASE NOTE: WE ADVISE FITTING THIS PRODUCT WITH THE INLET HOSE TO HELP EASE OF FITMENT. PLEASE SELECT FROM THE DROP DOWN MENU.*Please note – the Pipercross filter is excluded from the Forge lifetime warranty*
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
