Forge Motorsports Intake (With Scoops)

I have been waiting for Eventuri to restock their intakes and it's taking quite some time but then I ran across this intake for $800 and picked it up. Thought maybe anyone else on the fence or interested in a full carbon intake w/scoops might be happy they saw this.

Same. Honestly their carbon forming process is also much better (and stronger). This was a crazy good pickup. Thank you, Google.

Wow, thanks for the heads up on this!!!

I went ahead and pulled the trigger on this deal too, $800 is a steal for this intake set. Can't wait to install it and give my thoughts...

Got a tracking notification earlier, lo and behold the intake arrived earlier than scheduled! Was able to snap some pictures to share with you guys. The packaging was ridiculously good with all kinds of wrapped foam inserts to protect the separate components. The quality of the CF looks incredible, all the parts appear to be very well put together. The rubber lining the bottom of one of the heat shields is peeling away from the CF, about a 1/4 inch or so,, if even that. Also, the hole for one of the MAF sensors has one or two rough edges inside. These are in no way deal breakers for me but wanted to be transparent as I share my experience. They even include a small packet of Meguiar's ultimate wax and a microfiber with their logo on it, a nice little touch. I immediately took out the parts and applied the wax to all of the CF parts. I can't wait to get these on the car! Should be on sometime this week. Enough with my babbling, enjoy the pics!

I don't think we are allowed to directly link. Just Google Forge carbon fiber f80 intake, should be the first result. Forge Motorsport, which lands you on their US site with the sale price

This is a really solid looking intake for $800. It comes with an all carbon fiber construction, intake ducts, and it's all sealed off to prevent heat soak. This beats a lot of other intakes just on price alone.

Interested to see how this sounds. For $800 that looks like a hell of a deal.....super tempting.

Any chance you could take a quick measurement of the inlet diameter itself and/or the filter inlet neck? The system looks solid, but I'm not a big fan of foam filters so it would be great to know what alternatives exist in that regard.

Just food for thought as you sparked my curiosity and killed my productivity at work LOL.

I've never ran foam filters before but it looks like they flow better and take longer to clog up compared to gauze filters.

Sorry, forgot that the parts are wrapped again to drop off at my shop. Perhaps you could email them? Judging by how quickly I received the part, their customer service seems to be on point.

ARGGG damn you guys... i just placed my order. I didn't even want a darn intake for this car but this deal is too good to pass up.

Also apparently this intake will no longer be produced and Forge US is having a clearance of the remaining stock which is now below 25% since people have been buying them all weekend. Just talked to Forge USA.

Congrats! With the money you saved by swiping your GFs BM3, you almost break even lol. Yeah I figured they were discontinuing them, no other reason they would be offering them at such a price. Its a shame cause this appears to be a solid high quality item.
