As the original developers, engineers and enthusiasts who brought the VAG
induction hose line to the market almost 3 years ago, Forge Motorsport is
pleased to announce a completely retooled, redesigned, and reengineered range of
induction hoses for all VAG 1.8T applications.
We have spent the last year
co-developing a range of vehicle specific hoses with silicone manufacturer
SiliconHoses.com guaranteed to rival the best offerings from any other
manufacturer on the market today in terms of quality, price, and most
The first hose released from this new range is the induction
hose for 1.8T Golf's, Jetta's, GTI's, New Beetle Turbo S's and Seat Leon (not
Leon Cupra R) This hose fits all of the following engine codes on the above
- AWW - AWD - AWP - AUM - APP - AWU - AUQ
codes require a small blanking plug for a port on the hose not used on this
engine code. This plug is included at no additional charge.
It is possible to identify the code of the engine fitted
within your vehicle by removing the plastic engine cover (rotate the plastic
bolts securing the cover through 90 degrees) The engine code (three letters)
should then become visible on the left hand side or rear of the engine
(depending on application) as you are stood at the front of the vehicle.
These hoses have been designed and
manufactured with the utmost care given to quality and performance.
silicone compound used in the construction of the hoses is of the highest sheer
strength available and is hand-laid with a polyester reinforcement fabric. The
layering of the hoses is far more uniform and consistent than of that from any
other manufacturer which improves the overall structural integrity of the hoses
up to 50%.
internal surface of the hose is completely smooth and unobstructed and the
internal volume of this hose has been increased to provide the highest level of
airflow at all points within the power band.
We have also taken extra care
to ensure consistency between each hose produced and that each hose includes all
of the necessary ports and provisions required for each engine code and
application as have often times been missing on hoses from other manufacturers.
Forge Motorsport Induction Hose is available in your choice of 3 colours to
match the tastes and desired colour themes that you are looking for. (Please
select from the options list below your colour choice when ordering.)
Dyno testing has been
performed, by independent reviewer on their in-house
Testing was performed on a 2003 Jetta 1.8T with an
AWP engine code.
The vehicle modifcations include:
- EVO Cold Air
- TT 2.5" Turbo-Back Exhaust.
- Forge 004 Blow-off Valve.
- APR 93 Octane Chip.
For the benefit of those without engine
software modifications testing was conducted with stock ECU software and also
APR's 93 octane software.
Dyno runs 1 and 3 compare a baseline
(OEM hose) to the addition of the Forge induction hose using the stock ECU as
runs 2 and 4 compare a baseline (OEM hose) to the addition of the Forge
induction hose using the APR 93 Octane programming.
results show a 5.82 whp increase using the stock programming and a 12.26 whp
increase using the APR 93 Octane programming with an SAE correction factor.
When ordering please select colour of hose and engine code of
vehicle. Failure to do so may result in the wrong hose variant being supplied.
