AMS Performance Alpha 10 Nissan GT-R Sets New World Record

October 8th, 2010 No comments

After months of development and rigorous testing on the dyno and street, the AMS Performance Alpha 10 Nissan GT-R, owned by AMS customer Tim Sanders, made its first track debut a little over a week ago at Great Lakes Dragway in Union Grove, WI. Tim flew in from his hometown in Florida along with friend, Chuck Hannold, of NAGTROC.ORG with the full intention of seeing his Alpha 10 smash the previous GT-R quarter mile record of 9.62 @ 150mph and that it did!

The honors of piloting the Alpha 10 GT-R were given to one of the leading builders of R35 GT-R transmissions, John Shepherd of sheptrans.com, who made three passes down the track. The first pass was a ½ pass to make sure the launch was good and that track conditions were ok. Wheel hop in the colder weather was a problem but John was optimistic about its potential times that night. The record was set on the second pass with a 9.52 @ 150mph, and after only a few minutes of celebration and deliberation by Sanders, Shepherd and the AMS team, the decision was made to run the GT-R one more time for an even better time. The third and last pass shaved almost two-tenths of a second off the last pass bringing the new world record down to 9.33 @ 153mph!

AMS has composed a video of the record breaking event along with another video of owner Tim Sanders and Chuck Hannold driving his Alpha 10 GT-R on the street the morning after. This is what any customer GT-R customer can expect from AMS Performance and the Alpha 10 GT-R Package!

The Alpha 10 is part of the Alpha-Series line of premium performance upgrade packages manufactured by AMS Performance of West Chicago, IL and is the second most powerful upgrade for the Nissan R35 GT-R manufactured by AMS (next to the Alpha 12 currently under testing). The Alpha 10 utilizes the AMS Nissan GT-R Turbo Kit to produce an astounding 1100bh p.

For those interested, the Alpha 10 Package will soon be available for sale to the public. Features of the Alpha 10 include OEM fitment, reliability and quality, stock-like spool, responsiveness and driveability – all with enough power to make the R35 GT-R the ultimate full-weight street car.

The AMS Alpha 10 package for the Nissan GT-R combines the stock like drivablity of the Nissan GT-R with 1100+ horsepower. Typically power like this comes at the cost of reliability and comfort. That is not the case with the Alpha 10 as every aspect of this package was fine tuned to allow for a true Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Your GT-R will go from mild mannered and streetable one moment to white knuckled power the next.

At AMS we back-up our packages with real-world results.

Now that is performance that speaks volumes…

OEM Reliability Combined With Record Breaking Power

At the heart of the Alpha 10 package is the AMS Turbo System capable of over 1100 HP. In conjunction with the turbo system, all of the supporting Alpha Series components work in harmony to produce safe, reliable and consistent results. With this tried and true combination, we have successfully achieved unparalleled drivability, response and horsepower for your GT-R!

The stock VR38 engine is fortified with the best forged components available, balanced and blueprinted here at AMS. The transmission is prepared by Sheptrans.com with the latest Dodson and PPG components to offer piece of mind while packing more than twice the horsepower of a stock GT-R.

AMS Tuning Provides Perfect Stock Drivability That No One Else Can Offer

We are happy to report that the Alpha 10 packages perform flawlessly in all transmission settings and have ZERO drivability compromises. No limp modes or rough driveability problems that plague other high horsepower GT-R’s. Our perfectly re-scaled custom AMS MAF Sensors allow us to run a properly designed intake setup with no restriction to HP and also allow us to make the car drive like stock.

Record Setting Power for Your Street Car

This is the same kit used to power the record setting R35 GT-R ¼ mile pass of 9.33 @ 153.24 MPH!! Now you can be the fastest car on the street or the track with the AMS Alpha 10 Package! Not even a Superbike or the Bugatti Veyron can come close to the performance of an Alpha 10 GT-R!!

AMS Terra 2011 Honda CR-Z Body Kit

September 22nd, 2010 4 comments

It looks like the Honda CR-Z is getting it’s fair share of modifications pretty quick. Japanese tuner AMS has launched what they call the Honda CR-Z Terra upgrade program which is mainly styling upgrades.

The AMS Honda CR-Z Body Kit comes with a new front spoiler, side skirts, rear spoiler with diffuser, roof spoiler, rear wing and a new front grill. What a mouth full!

One interesting thing that sets this CRZ body kit apart is that it comes with a new exhaust has that has center tail pipes integrated into the rear bumper diffuser. Check out the picture:

The other features of this CRZ body kit is that it increases the width of the car 15mm in the front and 70mm in the back.

AMS has it’s CRZ sit on 19×8 inch Rays wheels and Toyo MP 2 Sport 215x35E19 tires.

I suspect the CRZ is going to get a lot of body kit and suspension parts available before performance for a while.
