So, I was told that Forge would be designing/releasing their own TIH for the New Beetle “APH” engine. Supposedly a Samco TIH for the Audi TT 180hp will fit but I don’t want to rely on that. This is good news as the APH doesn’t get enough love from aftermarket manufacturers.
Something hit me yesterday to post a question on the ‘tex asking about this rumor running on the net. I also IM’d Mike over at Forge. This was his response.
It is true that we are no longer supplying Samco hose products.
They have not been able to consistantly maintain the supply of product to us and we have chosen to source the product from another manufacturer that will not incur 8-12 week lead times.
We have just released our own version of the Induction Hose for AWP, AWW, and AWD engine codes, and the other hoses should soon follow.
I cannot yet provide an exact lead time, but a month shouldn’t be too far off that mark.
Here is a video of the TIH on an Audi collapsing under boost.
