We just picked up the shirts today, so they should begin shipping out as of tomorrow.
Keep the orders coming in!
We are pleased to announce the first t-shirt to be released as part of our "Forge Couture" lineup of merchandise.
"Forge Motorsport Encourages FSI Cam Follower Awareness"
As many of your are already aware, whether your 2.0T FSI engine equipped vehicle is bone stock or heavily modified, the cam follower that drives your high pressure fuel pump is at risk of failure, and needs to be checked regularly for premature wear, otherwise serious and costly internal engine damage can result. We have experienced such failures of this part ourselves, which gave us the motivation to help create awareness about this issue. With this t-shirt, you too can help spread the word about this issue that can affect anyone with a VAG 2.0T FSI powered car.
The shirts are only $15
Shipping is additional and will be via the US Postal Service. Expect $3-5 additional.
These shirts are currently still being printed, so this is a PRE-ORDER only at this time. We are expecting them to be completed and in-hand by the end of this week to begin shipping sometime next week.
The first 5 pre-orders will also receive a special free gift with their shirt.
This order link is for North American customers only. European customers, please order from Forge UK when the item is added to the merchandise section of the Forge UK website.
From left to right, a new cam follower, a moderately worn follower, and one that has completely failed. Don't forget to check your followers folks, and pick up one of our shirts to help spread the word amongst your friends.
Supporter of the "awareness" cause, and DIY video creator extraordinaire, Mike Savko of Savko Custom Performance put together a video highlighting the process of inspecting and/or replacing your high pressure fuel pump cam follower. Easily one of the most thorough how-to's you will find.
