Sergey’s Porsche 997.1 Twin Turbo at the Unlim 500+

On Sept 14/15 Alpha Performance customer Sergey Ignatko competed in the Moscow Unlim 500+ with his Porsche 997.1TT. Sergey recently installed our 997 Porsche Intercooler kit which gave him a nice increase in horsepower from the lower intake temps! He set a new Unlim 500+ pump fuel ET record with a 24.8 on Day 1 then drained the tank and switched to race fuel. He made two more passes ending up with a best time of 24.0. Sergey was planning on installing the drag radials and raising the boost on day two but unfortunately the weather was not cooperating and he was unable to make a pass. Check out his full story below! Please forgive his English, it’s not his first language.

AMS Twin Turbo R8 Spyder – Cross Country Road Trip

I had some extended free time lately so one day, on a whim, I decided to take my AMS powered twin-turbo R8 on a cross country road trip. I drove roughly 6k miles in total over a span of two weeks. I’ve include a map of the basic route that I took below. While the original plan was to also spend a week driving through California, but time did not permit I now envy those of you who live out west, particularly Colorado/Utah where I witnessed some of the best driving roads and scenery I have ever seen.

311RS #01: On Track and In Depth

#On Track and In Depth

Last week we took 311RS #01 to Monticello Motor Club for it’s maiden voyage on track. This was our first track time in a production unit, big day for 311RS! We’ve been tweaking, dialing, and fine tuning the setup for these cars since late 2011. After a 60,000 mile development period with our #00 prototype to satisfy our requirements, we’ve gone ahead and built a production unit to further prove the concept. #01 features most of the final production details and it has a good amount of the options we offer, making it a nice showcase for our program as we push towards full 11 unit production this October.
