AMS has been working hard over the past few months developing products for the new Nissan GT-R. We were fortunate enough to have one of our close friends the Lipani's (Frank and Mike) let us tear into their Japanese supercar to make it even better…and that we did! With only minimal modifications on 93 octane pump gas and stock run flat tires Mike and AMS GT-R were able to break the pump gas quarter mile record running a 10.69 @ 132!!!. What is most impressive about this time is the short list of modifications used to achieve it. To the naked eye the AMS GT-R looks stock. To those in the know it is cranking out over 600 all wheel horsepower and over 585 ft lbs of torque…all with just the following modifications:

AMS Turbo upgrade
AMS Downpipes
AMS Midpipe and prototype Catback Exhaust
Deatschwerks 800cc injectors
HKS EVC boost controller
AMS/Forged Performance tune using the Cobb Access port.
Willall transmission cooler
STOCK run flat tires

THAT'S IT!

With just those modifications we were able to run consistent 10 second passes on just pump gas in the AMS GT-R…all with only a 1.8 60 foot time on the stock run flat tires!!!!!
Look for the AMS GT-R to try and better its time by throwing on a set of lightweight 18" wheels and some drag radials in the very near future!!



what you guys think???

This kit is awesome because of quite a few things, for one its way better than hennessey's top kit which says they make more hp (but the clutchs slip)
Hennessey Performance Engineering (HPE) - Item Detail Page

so it produces times very simular to the henn kit but the AMS kit is extremely affordable in compairo. not only that but there are less mods producing less hp and still making better performance and can only rise in performance from this point.

ams is also developing more parts and this winter are going into full R&D mode. they have a sweet intercooler design that has endcaps like the stock R35 but with one full core instead of two. looks pretty sweet!
