The Forge Motorsport high flow turbo elbow for the RHD and LHD RS3 8V Facelift and TTRS 8S eliminates the highly restrictive Aluminium inlet pipe, and replaces it with our smooth bore multi-ply silicone hose which increases air flow, improving efficiency and performance. With 60% more volume than the stock elbow and paired with our high flow inlet pipe FMINLH8, this equates to increases of up to 20bhp along with power and torque being increased through the entire rev range which is a remarkable gain for an easy to fit bolt on modification.
The high flow turbo elbow and inlet pipe has been specifically designed for stage 1 tuning and around 600 bhp. The stock elbow and inlet pipe simply can’t flow enough air to the turbo inlet, resulting in power limitations as customers hunt for further BHP and torque.
Don’t be fooled by over enthusiastic aftermarket air filter power claims as the weakest link in the DAZAs intake system is the intake pipe and turbo elbow, a high flow panel filter and our intake configuration will give you all that is required.
The high flow inlet elbow has a special iron oxide lining to prevent fatigue even in the most extreme conditions.
We have also taken into consideration the increasing popularity of hybrid turbo conversions for the incredibly capable DAZA Audi engines by offering 3 different turbo adaptors, a choice can be made between the adaptors in the drop-down menu with the stock, TTE625 or TTE700 coupler options.
A terrific addition to the inlet pipe FMINLH8 is our specially designed heat reflective barrier tape, it reflects up to 80% of all radiant heat, whilst offering weight savings against other heat reflecting materials. The gold reflective heat barrier requires minimal clearance and is an extremely pliable material with a pressure sensitive adhesive backing that is easy to apply and remove. When applied correctly this tape can be used to protect intake components thus lowering IATs resulting in a more efficient and reliable engine cycle. This can also be added to your purchase in the drop-down menu.
PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR FMINLH8 (HIGHFLOW 3.5” INLET PIPE) WILL NEED TO BE USED WITH THE TURBO ELBOW AND WE CAN NOT GUARANTEE IT WILL FIT ANOTHER MANUFACTURERS INTAKE SYSTEM.
The Forge silicone hoses in this kit have been designed to include an expensive inner liner of modified silicone known as Fluorosilicone.
This means the hoses are suitable to be used with either modern long-life coolants, Organic Acid Technology coolants (O.A.T.) or air containing oil mist.
The construction of the hoses has been engineered to exceed that of the OEM fitments, and will enhance any engine bay both technically and aesthetically
The use of a Fluorosilicone liner ensures that Forge silicone hoses are the clear market leader.
