      Word is that Forge is making their own TIP for the APH engine and that it will be out in about a month?

      Is there any truth to that?

      Thanks in advance.

      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.

      thats what i have heard from other members. I could use one for my APH too. Bump to get the info out there.

      Make APH hoses now

      Seriously, if you make them, I'll place an order.

      I hate to burst your bubble, but these hoses will not be available for a few weeks.

      It takes time to do the necessary CAD-cam drawings, tooling development, prototyping, and test-fitment. If changes need to be made, more time is required.

      Once fitment is confirmed, then production will commence.

      It's not as simple as you might think.

      What about a boost hose kit for the AWP that includes a TB hose?

    8. 08-06-2005 09:09 PM #8
      if you need a testing MONKEY I'll will be glad to offer my APH engine for it to be tested with the hose!!

      Gee, I was only kidding. It seems that there is a lack of interest in the APH engine, so the more parts the better. Take your time. I'd like the part to be designed well.

      Heck, I was the guy that asked you about APH hoses at Waterfest. I bought a black billet antenna from you. All this over a couple of emoticons

      It's not about a lack of interest in the APH engine, nor a relaxed attitude towrds producing the parts.

      My only point was that these are not the types of parts that can be made quickly. They are quite expensive and time consuming to make.

      We are working on it, however.

      At this time, this is still not something that is available yet.

      We are working on it as quickly as is possible!

      It's coming along!

      I think I will have a prototype for test fitment within the next couple weeks.

      Same thing for the TT225 hoses.

      It's been slow going starting from scratch on these, but it's gradually getting better.

      I'll try to keep you updated as much as possible.

      By the way, all colors, blue, black, and red, will be readily available once fitment is confirmed and production commences.

      Estimated at $190 including stainless steel worm-drive hose clamps!

      would anyone know if this would help with adding low end torque, before the turbo kicks in?

      Typically, this type of product only improves higher RPM response and power. There is really no additional low-end power added.

      I have a shipment arriving Tuesday.

      I think at least 1 unit is in there for test fitting.

      We'll see what happens!
