The Forge Motorsport high flow turbo elbow for the RS3 8V Facelift and TTRS 8S eliminates the highly restrictive Aluminium inlet pipe, and replaces it with their 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 their 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 their 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.
