Carbon Fibre Intake Kit for Volkswagen 2.0 TSI
After well over a year in its R&D department finalising the design, fit and finish, Forge Motorsport is 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 created a pretty decent OEM intake on these cars, Forge’s R&D team have been able to force feed even more cold air into the company’s new 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 ‘dry’, meaning unlaquered, precisely as per the carbon fibre most usually seen in motorsport applications. This requires a higher quality fibre with no defects, and a higher attention to detail when the intake is manufactured. This results in a true premium product 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 Forge’s product testers have reported a more responsive throttle too. The filter element itself is provided by BTCC and WRC specialist Pipercross, and is fully serviceable or replaceable if necessary. During 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. An additional inlet hose upgrade is also available to make fitting even easier.
