    Forge TDI Hose Kits

    Has any one tried these Forge TDI hose kits?
    Forge Motorsport | Alloy Fabrication

    Im having problems with the original hoses keeping their seal, even after replacing hoses and seals so i wondered if anyone had tried these or had an opinion on them?

    Thanks

    been trying to order some for my 140 see my thread Boost issues TDi 140 BKD
    there is a 5 week wait on blue and black hoses they only have red, which should arrive monday, once i get confirmation of it... they seem to be very slow on the comms at the mo, which means its too late for me to fit this weekend

    Cant see what difference it's going to make by just changing the hoses you still have to use the Audi seals .
    Quote ,
    "Please note that the rubber seal needs to be transfered and re-used from the original fitment couplers to the new alloy couplers."
    So the way they seal onto the cooler is exactly the same.
    Unless I'm missing something !!

    well, the metal couplings are 'meant' to be designed better. I have heard many good things about people using them.
    oh an just got an email back from forge saying that its now too late, so will contact me on monday about the hoses, so wont even get them on monday!
    So far im really not impressed with forge service wise. Plus that its cheaper from gnj but they dont even answer phones or emails! dpm answered immediately but had no stock so would have to come from forge again. Its like some of these companies dont want my money!
