I am proud to finally release our ALPHA Race intercooler

Race-Proven results for your GT-R

We designed the Alpha GT-R Race Intercooler to be the best-performing, most efficient GT-R intercooler on the market! It certainly had to be in order to meet the requirements of our stable of world record setting 8 second Alpha GT-Rs! If you own a GT-R producing in excess of 900 horsepower or drive in a hot weather climate, the Alpha GT-R Race Intercooler is your best option for producing power safely and efficiently.

Engineered to be the best

At AMS we employ a team of mechanical engineers who have a passion for perfection in form and function. They set out to design an entire package with two goals in mind; maximum power delivery and response with perfect fitment. Every aspect of the project was scrutinized and then optimized to yield the best results.

Single piece fits neatly in front of the core support

All intercooler cores are not created equal

To effectively reduce charged air temperatures, we employed a vertical airflow design for maximum cooling effect with a massive 22"x14"x4.5" bar-and-plate core offering 92.5% more air volume than a stock pair of GT-R intercoolers! The core also offers up to twice the fin density of most intercoolers currently on the market. This allows for more contact with cool, dense air and does so with virtually no boost pressure drop (less than 1 psi) to proliferate the most ground pounding power output you can get for your GT-R!

Computer aided design yields maximum results

Our engineering team designed the Alpha GT-R Intercooler end tanks with extremely smooth features and geometry for the best flow resulting in maximum horsepower.  Designed using Solidworks 3D CAD software, these end tanks have improved flow over boxy sheet metal end tanks found on other intercoolers. These large end tanks feature 3-inch CNC billet inlet and outlet ports to provide a smooth, tapered transition from intake to intercooler. Our team went even further by computer designing precisely molded, custom silicone couplers to provide perfect fitment and optimized geometry for improved airflow volume and velocity- providing unmatched power and response.

The difference is in the details

This intercooler kit takes full advantage of the GT-R's available frontal area while improving functionality of the stock intercooler shroud. For even better channeling of air, a supplied bridge plate and shroud plates create a tight seal surrounding the core. This seal ensures that cool air entering the shroud is funneled through the core. The plates stop air from escaping through the sides, above and below the intercooler maximizing the efficiency and effectiveness of the intercooler core. These are features often overlooked by the competition. All of this in a package that does NOT require cutting of the factory crash beam or bumper cover.

Let the competition know you mean business!

When you buy an Alpha Race Intercooler, not only will you get the benefits of unmatched performance and the most well engineered product in its class, we also incorporate the prestigious AMS logo that peeks out from the front of your supercar.  Be warned though, it might scare your competition away!

The AMS logo increases the thermal resistance of your intercooler, decreasing its heat transfer ability by .1% :p. No but seriously I want to work for AMS :(

Sick. Wish I had the turbos to justify the upgrade from the standard AMS IC.

Will there be any logs presented with hard data ? Seems hard to have a mid mount trans/oilcooler with this IC ....
http://www.6speedonl...oolers-wow.html I think earl in this thread showed most of the companies what the buyer/end user would like to see before they make a decision ...some data :-).
