Return to Norwalk, Race for the Championship

OVER ONE MILLION VIEWS The last image that anyone has of Gidi from last year’s 2015 Buschur Shootout is when, at the 1/8 mile pole, blue smoke started pouring out from his quick blue Nissan GT-R. The issue, an oil line. It had burst spilling the slippery black substance in front of the racer’s tires. What […]

Chucks 1000hp Nissan GT-R Build Update # 18 Turbo Kit

The AMS GT-R SR series Turbo kit is really starting to take shape now. With custom silicone now here and attached the kit is almost ready for testing.

In the pictures below you will see much of what won’t be visable in the car. This setup is what will go on Tim sanders GT-R. Chucks will be a little larger.

Also the Compressor outlet pipe for Chuck and Tim’s car will be hand welded as is seen in the pics but the production kits will have a casted aluminum piece in its place with a smoother transition and more OEM like fit and finish.

With all of this done the next step is to finish the oil and water lines and drop the engine back in the car. From there we can finish the downpipes and finally get Tim’s car on the dyno!

I can’t wait to hear what these turbo’s are going to sound like with that intake pipe on there smile.gif

Chucks 1000hp Nissan GT-R Build Update # 17 Parachute Mount

We get asked all the time about Chucks car. I think it might even be surpassing that Blue demon evo we built in popularity

On with some more updates:

NHRA regulations require a parachute on a car trapping more than 150mph in the quarter mile. Considering Frank and Mikes GT-R cut a 146.9mph on its maiden 9 sec pass we knew Chucks was going to need a parachute.

Justin stepped up the plate and built onto the existing cage with one hell of a parachute mount. The best part is the mount can be removed and the license plate installed in about 5 minutes and nobody is the wiser.

Imagine setting up a street race with a GT-R and all of a sudden he whips out a parachute to attach to the car….hahahaha

The first samples are done and came out great! It will offer SOLID heat protection and with the close quarters in the GT-R engine bay its a MUST!

Here are some updated pictures

Chucks 1000hp Nissan GT-R Build Update # 15 – Turbo kit development

While we continue to work on the the engine for chuck we are prototyping the kit on another GT-R here at the shop, Mr Tim sanders. Tim’s car is getting a smaller version of Chucks setup for a little more all around power.

For mock-up purposes we temporarily installed the beginnings of the kit on Tim’s built motor. From Here we can begin to work up the oil and water lines needed along with test fitting heat shields, Turbo support brackets, intake pipes and IC piping. Please note the turbo’s shown do not reflect the actual units being used but rather a test set we have installed to get proper dimensions from.

Things are really starting to move along now. There is certainly light at the end of the tunnel. More to follow very soon!
