JJ's 914whp ALPHA 9 GT-R, the most powerful ALPHA 9 to date!
A long time ago NAGTROC member RENNtech (JJ) approached us with a dyno appointment. Sadly the day of his appointment we lost power and failed to contact JJ in time to let him know not to make the long drive out here. Obviously upset JJ left AMS with a bad taste in his mouth.
Fast forward about a year later and JJ was looking to make some waves with his 2012 GT-R. He was looking for a very streetable but powerful package. JJ actually contacted NAGTROC's very own VegasGTR (Sam.) Sam helped convince JJ to give us another chance and to work with me on a build being that he was a part time Chicagoland resident. We were grateful for the opportunity to make up for our failed previous efforts.
Well this story has a happy ending!
I worked with JJ on taking his currently modified GT-R and converting it over to our newly revised ALPHA 9 package. In addition to our basic package we upgraded JJ to our full 3.8L Long block with ALPHA cams, ALPHA Race FMIC, Akrapovic exhaust and a tried and true ShepTrans stage 2.5 trans upgrade.
To say the result was successful would be an understatement.
On pump gas Chris was able to extract 820whp and 711ft lbs of torque
On race gas Chris pulled out a mind bending 915whp and 826 ft lbs of torque!
The race gas numbers are officially the highest we have ever made on our ALPHA 9 package
JJ, we know that you had a lot of choices when it came to upgrading your GT-R and we are honored you chose us. We hope the car turns out to be everything you had hoped it would be and wish you years of problem free, safe and fun operation.
Have a fun drive down to the sunshine state
Special thanks to VegasGTR as well! Sam you have always been a stand up supporter of AMS and as always we appreciate your passion in this hobby. I hope you find your way into another GT-R VERY soon!
