    AMS Alpha 12 GT-R 9.0@166mph, 3.46 60-130 and 1318whp! *video added*

    Taken from NAGTROC
    Eric from AMS

    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 in VERY hot Dyno room!

    The dyno only tells so much though. We wanted to really put the package to the test so we loaded her up in the trailer and took her to the track where Ivan was instructed to put the HP to the test. Over the next 4 hours Ivan put down no less than 10 LOW 9 second passes all above the 160 mph mark. On every pass he reported traction was horrible. Still Ivan hot lapped her one pass after the other... over and over... 9.0, 9.0,9.1,9.0.. You get the idea

    The ALPHA 12 was making so much power it would not get 100% traction until 5th gear!!! To make matters worse the weather was horrible... High humidity and a heat index north of 90 degrees created a hot and greasy track. Even with these condition the ALPHA 12 was able to reset the worlds fastest and quickest GT-R with a best time of 9.05@166.66MPH!

    If that wasn't enough we checked the V-box time on that record pass and we improved our 60-130 time to 3.46 Seconds!!!!!!

    All in all it was a great day. The ALPHA 12 was put through a 12 round prize fight and came out still swinging!

    Below is the dyno chart from last nights session. Peak boost was 35 psi as it was run today. The car can run more boost but with traction being an issue we never had a chance to raise it.

    I have also attached the time slip from the best pass at the track.

    We are hoping to get her back to the track very soon once we can get some more favorable weather conditions. I will keep everyone posted!

    -Eric

    that is very very impressive... I wonder what they had to do to get the trans and axles to hold up.

    Has nothing to do with Japanese, but that it is twin turbo.

    Great, 1300 whp for the GTR and with the M3's BMW codes the ECU like it holds nuclear secrets.

    Sticky have you considered a standalone like a Motec? Their are several tuning options for the GTR including a full standalone unit from haltech. If that's what's holding back the M3 it should be relatively simple(although expensive). I think it has more to do with the fact their isn't much of a market for high HP M3's.

    That is part of it but also the fact you lose DCT control and such. I covered this topic a bit with my visit to Apex Speed Technology last week, I'll have the interview up soon.

    How does the haltech retain control of the DCT on the GTR?

    No it has a full standalone unit that replaces the stock ecu. It's been out for a few years. No wiring involved either you simply unplug the stock ecu and use the same harness to plug into the haltech

    Looks like Haltech paid for the development to make it work.

    For the M3, the same could be done. Just who will pay for it?

    Well that's what I mean, if there was a market some company would have produced one already. No need for one person to pay the whole development costs of a standalone as from talking to a project manager at haltech it can be 100k or more to develop it. But these things are sold for like $2,500 each, if there were more people building out M3's such as yours it would be a good investment. There are probably 100's of GTR's as built as yours so companies are willing to take the risk.

    jap cars have always been easier to crack open, theres also a bigger market for modding them so its natural for that car to get the royal treatment. Most guys that buy an M3 dont even know where to put the washer fluid under their hood. So the solution is simple, if demand is low; supply will be low and vice versa.
