Forge Motorsport Carbon Fiber Intake Kit - VW Mk7, Mk7.5, Mk8, Audi 8V/Y S3
With the release of the VW Golf MK8 R, the development team at Forge Motorsport knew that there would be a great opportunity to help the EA888 engine breathe easier and make more power. Forge Motorsport were lucky to get one of the first MK8R’s to enter the UK and used this opportunity to put months of development and testing into this new induction kit. The Forge Motorsport MK8R has been put through countless hours of track day work and hill climbs, alongside the usual daily and spirited driving. This kit has been designed from the ground up, using 3D Scanning, FEA Simulation data in SolidWorks CAD, 3D printed development, and numerous dyno sessions to truly unlock the power.
- Average gains of 5.5bhp
- Gains of 16bhp when coupled with FMTIA6 for GTI and FMTIA9 for Golf R
- Prepreg 2x2 twill formed carbon fibre
- Dyno proven
- Great induction noise
- More responsive throttle
- Lifetime Warranty
Simulation testing played a large part in the design process to help maximise the airflow. This included a tear drop cavity around the bonnet release mechanism to ensure that the airflow stays fast and laminar on its way to the filter element. The 3D printed prototypes helped with comparing simulation testing to real world driving conditions. This is a valuable comparison that is used in the top tiers of motorsport, now being brought to your vehicle.
During the final prototypes testing Forge found that the induction kit with stock turbo inlet produced gains on average of 5.5bhp. However, when paired with the an aftermarket turbo inlet adaptor, the stock EA888 engine saw significant gains, bumping up to 16bhp. Its worth remembering that this is with a stock ECU and no tune, so you would expect to see mapped cars returning even greater yields of power.
This induction kit runs the full width of the slam panel, incorporating an elegant lip which neatly slides under the slam panel to ensure that all the cold air flows through without influence from the engines heat. During testing we found this to make a significant decrease to airflow and inlet air temperatures (IAT’s).
It’s worth noting that this induction kit offers a massive amount of air to the EA888 engine, which is a must for anyone looking to push the performance of their car when tuning to stage 1, stage 2, and beyond. Not only do you get the bhp performance benefits, but INDK40 also offers a greater sound from the engine; particularly when on boost, and Forge's product testers have reported a more responsive throttle too.
This intake is part of Forge's acclaimed Hi Flow range and will ensure that your vehicle is getting critical cold air. Not only is the Forge part a better option for performance, but the carbon fibre really helps to give the engine bay some character. The high-quality carbon fibre is prepreg 2x2 twill formed in an autoclave from billet tooling and finished with an anti UV gloss gel coat. The Forge Motorsport lifetime warranty on all hardware products shows the trust we have in the quality of their products while they are being enjoyed on your pride and joy.
The kit comes complete with everything you need for installation, which can be carried out in around 1 hour, including a set of full colour instructions. For such an easy to fit product it truly does create some remarkable gains.
