1300whp AMS ALPHA 12 Speedometer Video

Recently we took our AMS ALPHA 12 equipped GT-R to the drag strip for some performance testing. The goal was to put the car through a series of abuse drag runs in order to solidify the engineering put behind it. Durring that testing we broke the record for HP, ET, MPH and 60-130 for a […]

AMS Alpha 12 R35 GT-R: World Record 9.05@166.66mph *Video*

Recently we took our updated ALPHA 12 to the track to do some more testing. As of recent, the limits of the factory block had been reached and our engineers went to work to devise a new way of reinforcing the engine. To prove our new method, we knew we had to put the updated ALPHA 12 package through a series of Grueling tests. The car was placed on the dyno for over three hours in 100 plus degree heat where it produced over 1300whp at 35 psi of boost.

Upon completion of dyno testing we took the car to our local drag strip where the weather was not much more favorable. Scorching sun, 90 degree track temps, a density altitude of 2745 and high humidity proved to produce very slick conditions. Still we agreed that the package had to be placed through the most brutal of conditions to ensure the integrity of the new ALPHA 12 package. Read More

9.0@166mph, 3.46 60-130 and 1318whp! ALPHA 12 goes testing, It was a good day for the ALPHA 12.


As many of you know we have been working the VR38 motor program with the recent issues of the Nissan block cracking under extreme HP / Cylinder pressures . Our engineers and technicians have been hard at work and developed a new way to reinforce the block. We wanted to test this new theory and really put the car through its paces. The only way we know how to do that is to abuse it on the dyno and the track!

Last night we strapped the revised ALPHA 12 package to the dyno. The test vehicle was our own 2009 Nissan GT-R. Chris began tuning and the numbers just kept getting higher and higher. The final result was a Whopping 1318WHP at only 35 psi of boost! Read More
