AMS Smash The 9 Second Barrier at TX2K10

March 21st, 2010

After beating out all the other competitors in the dyno competition, AMS have driven this SR850 tuned R35 GT-R to a worlds first 9 second ET at Lonestar Motorsports Park on their first run of the day!

They went on to run a string of 9 second passes with the best ET being 9.89 @ 145 even after hitting the rev limiter in second. The best mph of the day was 146.96 mph which you can see in the timeslip in the gallery below.

To get there, the car runs an AMS SR850 upgrade package which includes:

  • AMS upgraded bolt on turbo’s
  • Upgraded actuators
  • AMS 90mm downpipes
  • AMS 90mm Resonated midpipe
  • AMS 90mm exhaust
  • AMS Front mount intercooler
  • AMS 3″ intercooler piping
  • HKS bov’s
  • AMS Large MAF intake pipes
  • AMS fuel System upgrade
  • Cobb AccessPORT
  • AMS Custom Race gas map (unleaded 109 octane Race gas)

With these mods the car is putting 765awhp and 738 lbft of torque to the ground. Impressive stuff and big big numbers from bolt on upgraded turbos. What will we see when AMS’s custom cast manifolds and even bigger turbos get bolted up to Chuck’s car?

Congratulations to Frank who owns the world’s first 9 second GT-R and to AMS who built it!

Cheers to Chuck for the heads up on this. Also note, these pics are from previous runs.
