AMS Alpha GT-Rs In Record Breaking Territory Again: 9.1 @ 163 mph and More

October 22, 2010

Forget everything you read about Nissan GT-R quarter mile records because AMS just went and rewrote the book. They not only just smashed their own quarter mile ET record but they blew up the current Mph record as well.

With time to tweak the car since the first 9.33 second outing back in early October the guys took the car back to the track and managed a best time of 9.192 at 163.12 mph. Over two tenths quicker and a full 10 mph faster down the strip than their previous Alpha-10 best time. A serious improvement and seriously closer to 8 seconds.

Not content with just setting the outright quarter mile records all in one day they also went on to break the pump gas R35 quarter mile record in the Alpha-9 package GT-R. The Alpha-9 GT-R is the Nissan GT-R to dip into the 9’s on pump gas with a 9.95 ET @ 141.01 mph.

One of the best things about the AMS’s Alpha GT-Rs isn’t related to how damn fast they are but how streetable they remain with all that grunt under the hood. After running 9’s in the Alpha-9 the guys will begin an epic cross USA roadtrip beginning in Chicago, driving through Colorado and Nevada and ending up in SoCal. Over 2,000 miles of cross country driving with a full writeup expected. Check the video below for a taste of the Alpha-10’s daily drivability…

AMS Nissan GT-R Alpha 10 Package

Acceleration that leaves you breathless. Speed like nothing you have experienced. A power package that will leave any Super Car in its wake.

Over Twice The Horsepower Of A Stock GT-R Yet Mild Mannered For Daily Driving

The AMS Alpha 10 package for the Nissan GT-R combines the stock like driveablity of the Nissan GT-R with 1100+ horsepower. Typically power like this comes at the cost of reliability and comfort. That is not the case with the Alpha 10 as every aspect of this package was fine tuned to allow for a true Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Your GT-R will go from mild mannered and streetable one moment to white knuckled power the next.

Quality, Integrity, RESULTS

At AMS we back-up our packages with real-world results. In preliminary testing we shattered the World Record for Quickest and Fastest GT-R running a 9.3 @ 153mph in the quarter mile with a full weight street car. 0 to 150 MPH was reached in just under a quarter of a mile! Now that is performance that speaks volumes…

OEM Reliability Combined With Record Breaking Power

At the heart of the Alpha 10 package is the AMS Turbo System capable of over 1100 HP. In conjunction with the turbo system, all of the supporting Alpha Series components work in harmony to produce safe, reliable and consistent results. With this tried and true combination, we have successfully achieved unparalleled drivability, response and horsepower for your GT-R!

The Alpha 10 GTR Is Built Right The First Time

The stock VR38 engine is fortified with the best forged components available, balanced and blueprinted here at AMS. The transmission is prepared by Sheptrans.com with the latest Dodson and PPG components to offer piece of mind while packing more than twice the horsepower of a stock GT-R.

AMS Engineering Provides Perfect Stock Driveability That No One Else Can Offer

We are happy to report that the Alpha 10 packages perform flawlessly in all transmission settings and have ZERO drivability compromises. No limp modes or rough driveability problems that plague other high horsepower GT-R’s. Our perfectly re-scaled custom AMS MAF Sensors allow us to run a properly designed intake setup with no restriction to HP and also allow us to make the car drive like stock.
