This induction kit is for the Mk5 Golf R32. The filter is a PiperCross high flow Foam cone filter housed in a carbon fiber composite enclosed canister that connects directly to the an intake pickup at the front of the vehicle with an application specific inlet scoop. (Replacement filters can be found here).
Everything is connected via high quality silicone couplers. The system creates a true ram air effect, and will only see airflow from outside the vehicle with absolutely no hot air from within the engine that could reduce power. We have dyno tested this kit, and have seen gains as high as 10 peak wheel horsepower improvement over the stock airbox and filter on Stage 2 tuned vehicles. Whilst Power gains may vary depending on your modifications and level of tune, this kit will offer a significant improvement over the original air box*
*Please note some models have a noise resonator connected to the air intake pipe that will have to be disconnected and left unused when installing the Forge Motorsport induction kit. This will however not detract from the performance of the induction kit
*Please note – the Pipercross filter is excluded from the Forge lifetime warranty*
Please watch our video on how to fit an air filter without damaging it.
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
