AMS Street Class EVO X : Cam Testing and 700whp!

Just today we had a chance to test some new AMS spec camshafts in our street class EVO X. The car was baselined with kelford ‘B’ cams on the same tune that the car ran out at Buttonwillow and set the street class record with, narrowly beating our Shop GTR, both being piloted by AMS’s president Martin Musial.

The design goal for these cams was to make more power, while still being able to retain adequate drivability on the stock ECU. Major Modifications to the car are as follows:

AMS 2.3L motor with 10:1 compression ratio
AMS Prototype CNC head package w/ 1mm over valves
AMS Spec Camshafts
AMS FMIC, LICP, UICP
AMS 900x turbo kit @ 33 psi
AMS Single exit 3″ exhaust
AMS Custom paralell fuel pump system
AMS Fuel rail
ID 2000cc injectors @ 72% IDC
ECU controlled boost, single bottom port WG solenoid

Here you can see the results from our cam testing. These cams are available now. There are no losses on the bottom end, and it makes about 25more hp up top with 1 lb LESS BOOST! These cams are good for an easy 30-35whp over the already awesome B cams. Read More

AMS Alpha 10 and 12 Final Kit Assembly Pictures

We have been shipping some of our Alpha 10 and 12 kits this week and in order to write up detailed instructions we installed a kit on one of the VR38 Core long blocks we have here. Its pretty impressive looking all assembled and bolted to the motor so I wanted to share some pictures of it.

Hadeed Motors/Rocket Science Racing Alpha 12 build

A couple of months back we were contacted by one of our dealers on the island of Antigua. He had a close friend and customer of his that had been campaigning a bolt on GT-R out in the carribean that was doing very well. He was hungry for more. Habib from Rocket Science Racing and Mr Hadeed of Hadeed Motors (GT-R Owner) had been following our Alpha 10 progress with great interest. They also had been following Chuck’s GT-R build and the World challenge build. After much deliberation they decided to send their beloved GT-R project up to AMS.

With a go big or go home mentality Habib and Mr Hadeed decided to cut straight to the chase and chose our Alpha 12 GT-R package with 4.0 Race engine and complete Alpha 12 spec transmission. No stone was to be left unturned on this project. A very comprehensive cage was to be installed along with any component that would aid in reliability and safety.

Racing on the tracks in Antigua is a bit hairy to say the least. Here in the states we are blessed with many well prepped tracks and long shut downs…..NOT IN ANTIGUA! As Habib explained the shut down at the local track is not only short but has a kink half way down the track. For this reason and NHRA rules we had no choice but to install a removable parachute.

The project is making great leaps but we still have some room to go. The cage and chassis work are completely done, the turbo kit is just about done and the motor is going through final assembly.

This is an exciting project as not only is it one of the first ALPHA 12 GT-R’s we have been asked to build but the fact that its getting shipped to an island most consider to be a tropical paradise

Goes to show you that the love for the R35 is EVERYWHERE

ON with some pictures of the build

Off the trailer and ready for WORK!
