Forge Hi-Flow Carbon intake for VW AUDI SKODA SEAT 1.4 150BHP FMINDK14
Forge Hi-Flow Carbon intake for VW AUDI SKODA SEAT 1.4 150BHP FMINDK14. Part of the Forge Motorsport Hi-Flow range. Increases air flow and improves efficiency and performance. Up to 10 BHP gain. Strong, tight carbon fibre weave. Made from 100% carbon fibre with no fibre glass added. Formed by Autoclave Pre Preg. High flow cleanable airfilter with no need to ever replace. Carbon intake for the VW Golf MK7 GTE and Seat Leon and other 1.4 TSIs.
This is the second product to be released in our new Hi-Flow range. With this unique sleek design, you can expect to see a carbon fibre housing that flows beautifully along the engine bay, giving you more horse power and torque, and hopefully an appreciation for the care and time that has gone into the production.
It includes a billet machined coupler made to exact tolerances at our machine shop in Gloucester, UK, ensuring a perfect fit. The hose is available in. Or black and is supplied with all necessary hose clamps (please state which colour hoses you require when ordering). Golf Mk7 1.4 150bhp. Touran II 1.4 150bhp. A3 8V 1.4 TSI 2015 Onwards. Leon 1.4TSI 2015 Onwards.
The Design Following the success of our carbon fibre intake for the Mk7 Golf we knew that we wanted to continue with our Hi-Flow range and bring out an affordable option to the 1.4 TSI market. We conducted intense market research, speaking to tuners and owners of the vehicles we wanted the intake to fit. We concluded that rather than creating an entire carbon fibre intake system, the best product to create would be a carbon fibre scoop and airbox lid that fits with original airbox. With this idea in mind we started the design.
Using industrial foam and aluminium the concept design was created. With these components, we could identify the best way to fit the scoop, join it to the air box and mount it to the vehicle. To ensure we deliver the best quality product we could and following the extensive design and development of this intake, we enlisted the services of one the worlds leading Carbon fibre manufacturers, whos products range from F1 aero, carbon fibre car bodies and aircraft wings!
Tooling was then CNC machined from billet aluminium to ensure the finished product was flawless. This enables us to create a perfect airbox using the autoclave technique during the manufacturing process of the 2x2 twill carbon fibre.
Rather than using a vacuum (also known as liquid infusion) to draw the resin through the mould then pulling the raw carbon fibre cloth to the mould shape, a technique known as Autoclave is used in the manufacturing of this beautifully designed product. This involves the use of up to 10 bar of pressure that is blown into a 100% billet mould to force it out. This high amount of pressure ensures the material is fully in contact with the surface of the mould. Therefore, making sure the weave is tight, solid and strong, this process also ensures there are no imperfections in the product. The mould is then heated to cure the resin which in turn gives a tensile strength up to eight times stronger than mild steel but at a fraction of the weight. Having spent so much time on the carbon and silicone development we then turned to the equally important aspect of filtration.
Going with the Flow With the lid and scoop design completed we moved on to the hose and filter. There is no point creating such an efficient system for it then to be restricted by the OEM hose and filter. Therefore, for the filter we engaged our partners and experts in Filtration Control, Pipercross! With over 25 years experience in both the domestic and motorsport market they recommended a multi-layer foam construction filter, these filters work perfectly in our Hi-Flow range. The large filter provided, flows 30% more air than stock and fits snuggly within the housing.
This combination is second to none. The Forge Motorsport high flow intake hose that is mated to the carbon airbox eliminates the highly restrictive plastic and noise restricting inlet pipe, and replaces it with our smooth bore multi-ply silicone hose which increases air flow, improving efficiency and performance. This equates to increases of up to 10hp which is a remarkable gain for an easy to fit bolt on modification.
The Forge silicone hose in this kit has been designed to include an expensive inner liner of modified silicone known as Fluorosilicone.
