The first test is using the intake with the Turbo Inlet Elbow and IS20/38 turbo housing adapter.  The Forge Motorsport intake flowed 396 CFM @ 28″ of H2O.

Removal of the Turbo Inlet Elbow to measure just the intake was the next test.

Notably the Forge “closed” intake flowed more than several “open” intake systems.

Conclusion:

The Forge Motorsport intake performed very well on both of the flow tests.


Prior testing has been done with the Forge Turbo Inlet Pipe using a small adapter and a large adapter.

  1. So would this maybe mean that you don’t need a aftermarket TIP with the forge Intake? It definitely seems like a viable intake to use now.

    1. I would not do that. The stock elbow reduces the airflow a good amount. I think you would be better off with an aftermarket elbow and stock intake.
