Mishimoto has developed a performance aluminum radiator available for the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe. This is the ideal upgrade to your stock Genesis Coupe radiator, having a turbo set up produces a great amount of heat, by replacing your current Hyundai Genesis radiator with a top of the line Mishimoto performance aluminum radiator you will […]

“Beat the GT-R around Streets in the blue Evo. I still want to take my kids to bassoon practice with it, though. And you know how I hate getting my hands dirty. I’m an ‘arrive-and-drive’ kind of guy. Get it right or pack your stuff, Pal.”
The AMS 4B11 Torque/Honing Plate is an essential tool when machining your engine block. The 4B11 block is a lightweight aluminum casting. Since the overall mass of the block has been reduced, the controlled stresses of the cylinder head bolted to the block have become an important factor in the block’s integrity. To ensure integrity, we must recreate that stress by using a deck plate when boring and honing to eliminate distortion of the cylinder bore.
Recently we’ve begun working on a very unique and involved project here at AMS Performance, a 1,000 HP Nissan GT-R! Here is a quick video introduction to the project: Click HERE for more information about the build including technical info and photos.

Here are some preliminary CAD images of the digitized GT-R engine bay and the 750R Turbo’s placed in their possible areas.
REALLY Cool stuff!!
Some more updates!
At AMS we pride ourselves on making the highest quality and most powerful parts on the market. This does not come easy but thanks to our highly qualified team and state of the art equipment we can make that a reality for any customer. One of the tools we use to achieve this goal is our portable CMM arm (coordinate measurement machine).
Our Romer portable CMM allows us to digitally plot any given area we are working with. By taking the arm and touching key points on the motor and the chassis we can digitally recreate the entire GT-R drivetrain in our CAD software. Why is this important? This allows us to make and design the best part possible using the given space constraints. The end result is a product that fits like stock, lasts the life of the car and produces the most power capable in that given area. Remember all that math in school that you thought you would never use in real life? Well we do
In chuck’s case we are using this technology to create quite simply the best turbo kit available for the GT-R!
Here are some pictures of one of our engineers Drew Johnson plotting the GT-R engine bay on Chucks soon to be AMS powered 1000plus WHP GT-R!
Well we are making some good ground over here on Tim’s car. The motor is out and the deatschwerks injectors are installed. The stock turbos are getting swapped as I type with with the upgraded AMS units. The Intercoolers have been removed and replaced with the much larger AMS unit. The stock fuel tank is out and being updated with a very cool dual pump upgrade that installs just like factory. I doubt the dealer will be able to tell we put upgraded pumps in! The big plus is this is that instead of using industry standard walbro pumps we are using a unique pump that looks like stock, flow more fuel and does not have that dreaded walbro fuel pump whine at all.
Also Tim opted to do a little preventative maintenance on his GT-R so we removed his stock transmission and sent it off to Mr John Shepherd for some much needed upgrades. Lots of work going on over here at AMS
Here are some pictures of the progress:
