Forge Motorsport are excited to launch our RS6 Carbon Fibre Air Box, another superior product to be released in our ‘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.
Once the initial carbon fibre sample was developed, we fitted the intake to the Audi development vehicle for rigorous testing. A few small changes were made to ensure we provide our customers with the best possible fitment and performance.
With the design process complete, we wanted to be sure we delivered the best quality product we could and following the extensive design and development of this intake, we enlisted the services of one the world’s leading carbon fibre manufacturers, whose products range from F1 aero, carbon fibre car bodies, and aircraft wings!
All the Forge Motorsport hoses supplied in this Hi-Flow intake have been designed with 4 layers of ply.
In the development of this intake we also created our own custom moulds for the Forge silicone hoses. This allows for the ease of fitting and transition of flow throughout the air box internal surface.
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 the stock filter and fits snuggly within the housing.
Alternatively, you can select our Forge Motorsport designed pleated filter which is excellent on stage 2 tuned cars, as you can see in the dyno sheet, producing over 600 bhp
A completely standard vehicle was sourced for the final dyno testing.
The Forge High Flow airbox produced an impressive 12bhp and 20ftlb increase!
This can be seen in the dyno graph below where the colour blue represents the RS6 with a standard intake and the red representing the same vehicle with our Forge Motorsport ‘Hi-Flow’ intake.
Stage 2 Cars.
Following our initial testing on a stock car we changed the design of the airbox to accommodate the vehicles with a very high state of tune.
Therefore we offer the choice of a foam filter or pleated filter depending on the stage of tune you have.
We recommend our Forge Motorsport pleated filter for a stage 2 tuned vehicle.
The testing was performed at an independent dyno on a well known Audi performance specialists car and was put back to back against the stock airbox with a performance air filter installed.
The Forge airbox continued to perform second to none and gave very good gains at over 700BHP.
The results speak for themselves with a 12BHP gain and 24lbft of torque throughout the rev range resulting in 727BHP and 679lbft.
