Forge Motorsport K03 Outlet muffler delete pipe for 1.8 and 2.0 petrol VAG engined cars
Surely one of the most successful turbo designs yet conceived, the K03 can be found on some of the most popular performance cars of the 21st century, with many of VAG’s most iconic machines having had the unit OEM fitted. Forge Motorsport know a staggering amount about tuning forced induction setups and have spent years learning the ins and outs of the K03, and this makes them ideally placed to cater for these cars. The most recent example of Forge’s commitment to K03 tuning is their turbo outlet muffler delete pipe, a product that promises to both enhance turbo sound and improve response.
Forge Motorsport’s turbo outlet muffler delete will fit a whole range of 1.8 and 2.0 VAG EA113 TFSI models, including the Audi A3, Golf GTi, Seat Leon and Skoda Octavia. Extracting further power from these cars has long been a Forge specialty and the turbo outlet muffler delete is a case in point, it’s sleek, single billet design serving to effectively remove the restriction and turbulence created by the OEM component. This has two benefits: an enhanced turbo noise whilst spooling, one that manages to be aggressive without ever being over the top or intrusive, and, more importantly, a significantly sharpened throttle response, again due to the reduction in turbulence.
The muffler delete is so effective due to its design, namely the three distinct points of contact Forge Motorsport opted to fit to it. These effortlessly eliminate any trace of resonation, resulting in an unrestricted flow of air from the turbo and a correspondingly smooth throttle response.
Coming complete with high quality silicone hoses and all clamps required for fitment, Forge’s outlet muffler delete pipe looks set to be a must-have product for owners of VAG cars fitted with 1.8 and 2.0 EA113 TFSI petrol engines, a complete list of which can be found below.
