Forge Motorsport offer Front Mount Intercoolers (FMIC) which because of their location at the front of the car allow greater charge air cooling. Also available is side mount intercoolers which although located in the same position as your standard intercooler on the 1.8T engines, these are larger and again capture more air.
For the new 2.0 L FSIT engines there is one sure way to improve on the charge air cooling by using the Forge “TWINtercooler” this ground breaking innovation features a unique twin-core design which has added greater efficiency throughout the entire RPM band beyond that of a single core setup. Forge have achieved this by using the latest core technology with high flow end tank designs to achieve a huge reduction in inlet temperatures.
Forge spent many months testing various designs and the Twintercooler design emerged as the clear winner. This is a bolt-on kit that retains the use of the OEM intercooler to produce both horsepower AND torque, but more importantly, a HUGE reduction in inlet temperatures and increased flow efficiency.
A reduction in temps of up to a peak of 20 degrees Fahrenheit from 102 to 82 at 6600 RPM!

Made from billet aluminium, this recirculating diverter valve dumps the charge-air back into the air intake system keeping external noise to a minimum. This increases both quicker throttle response and higher clamping load to maintain boost pressure more reliably.
Unlike mechanically derived products this kit has been created to symbiotically utilise the vehicle manufacturers latest innovations in order to allow the installation of an atmospheric dump valve to the VAG diesel engine. Information harnessed direct from your engine management system is interpreted by the supplied Electronic Valve control Unit (VCU) in order to optimise the activation of the twin piston valve. For ease of installation we have also created vehicle specific fitting kits that utilise silicone boost hoses, which can withstand the greater temperatures and pressures associated with performance engines, along with an additional wiring harness, fixing brackets, vacuum line solenoid valve and fitting instructions.

Made from billet aluminium, this recirculating diverter valve dumps the charge-air back into the air intake system keeping external noise to a minimum. This increases both quicker throttle response and higher clamping load to maintain boost pressure more reliably. Unlike diaphragm diverter valves, this uses counter balanced springs and a single piston to prevent the valve from leaking air into the intake system at idle. This prevents our diverter valves suffering any of the failures associated with single piston and diaphragm type diverter valves
The Splitter is a truly remarkable valve that gives a combination of blow off and recirculation valve operation all at the same time and has been specifically designed for the many VAG 1.8T applications. This means you get all the noise of the blow off valve whilst retaining the compatibility with the recirculation requirements of the engine management system. As a bonus we also offer the ability to convert the valve to recirculation only mode for those times when stealth running is required.
This valve uses a Copper and Zinc alloy piston which utilises new sealing technology along with a variable spring preload incorporating a ratchet type top adjuster that will allow for the positive and precise adjustment to match the valve to your engine. This is achieved by using a unique single, conical, progressive rate spring that can allow for the retention of boost pressure over a wide adjustment range. This unique spring design also allows for unrestricted piston travel and flow volume regardless of the amount of pre-load adjustment added to the spring. Other manufacturers valves using cylindrical springs with adjustable pre-load often experience restricted piston travel and a reduction in flow volume.

The 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%. The 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. Each 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. Dyno testing has been performed, by independent reviewer and Forge dealer NGP Racing on their in-house DynoJet dynamometer. Testing was performed on a 2003 Jetta 1.8T with an AWP engine code. The vehicle modifcations include Cold Air Intake, 2.5″ Turbo-Back Exhaust, Forge 004 Blow-off Valve, N75J Valve. For the benefit of those without engine software modifications testing was conducted with stock ECU software. Dyno runs 1 and 3 compare a baseline (OEM hose) to the addition of the Forge induction hose using the stock ECU as programming.
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 importantly, performance.
After encountering the collapse of the OEM intake air hose on the Audi S3 (210 & 225) and TT 225 engines (this typically occurs around 5000rpm) that had been re-chipped, our development team set about the manufacture of a hose with re-inforced walls to remedy the problem. The replacement silicone hose was also aerodynamically improved internally to maximise power by removing the existing restrictions.

This hose fits directly to the turbo on the 1.8T 210 and 225 engines. It is made from high temperature resistant flourosilicone compound and nomex reinforced to withstand the high pressures that may be experienced on tuned engines. This is the perfect replacement for the OEM hose which has a history of premature failure.
