AMS Alpha Race Intercooler R35 GTR

8 Aug

New from AMS is their Alpha intercooler for the Nissan R35 GTR. Designed 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.

The 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!

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.

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.

Just like all Alpha GT-R components, there is absolutely no doubt about durability, reliability and fitment of this package! Our Alpha GT-R Race Intercooler mounts firmly to the core support with gusseted aluminum brackets. All 4-ply silicone couplers provide superior strength and fasten securely using Murray Turbo Seal Clamps.The intercooler itself is pressure tested to 50psi and checked for leaks in order to pass inspection. All of this is done to ensure your Alpha GT-R Race Intercooler lasts the lifetime of your GT-R!

Available for purchase with or without stenciled logo.

Priced at $3995. For the first 5 orders we are offering free ground shipping in the 48 states. Contact z1sales@z1auto.com to order.

World’s Most Complete Evo Timing Belt Kit

15 Nov

As we all know the timing belt is a critical piece of equipment on your Evo. As these cars age and accumulate miles, the belt stretches and performance and reliability can be compromised. Mitsubishi suggests replacing the belt every 60,000 miles under normal use, and if your car is raced, even shorter intervals are suggested. For this reason, we have put together a comprehensive timing belt replacement kit that includes everything needed for a full, complete timing belt replacement job. Alot of times, people take shortcuts on this and only replace the belt itself. Then a few thousand miles down the road, they find some of the other components wearing, or leaking, or making noises that were not there before and are forced to do the whole job over again. Do it right the first time and don’t be caught short. If you’re bringing these parts to your mechanic, he will thank you for giving him all the complete parts needed. If you’re having friends help you with the install over a weekend, when it’s 11PM on a Saturday and there are no parts stores open to replace that noisy idler pulley, you’ll be thankful you got them all as part of the kit.

Our kit contains the following:

Timing belt, balance shaft belt, balance shaft tensioner, timing belt tensioner, AMS timing belt tool, serpentine belt (please choose with or without air conditioning below), accessory belt idler pulley, water pump, water pump gasket, thermostat, thermostat gasket. All parts carry a 1 year no hassle warranty (excludes shipping)

Need to customize it with a performance timing/balance shaft belt? No problem – we offer Gates, Greddy and HKS. Need to eliminate the balance shaft belt? No problem, we offer a kit for that too!

Prices start at $490 shipped. Contact us at z1sales@z1auto.com to order yours

Evo 8-9 Clearance Items

12 Feb

Tomei Oil Thermostat Killer (fits Evo 7-9)
One of the seldom-weak points of 4G63 is rising of oil temperature. It is seen more often in circuit driving. Evo uses thermo switch that will work when the temperature gets around 85 degrees C. Yet when the oil temp is low, it will restrict oil flow to the oil cooler and raise the temperature of oil consequently. TOMEI oil thermo killer lets oil to flow into the oil cooler constantly regardless of its temperature. Still, it is easy to put it back to stock thermo switch in winter to prevent over cool. Regularly $95 shipped, blowing em out at $69 shipped

The AMS lower intecooler pipe is for intercoolers with stock style outlets on the intercooler (Turbo XS, AMS, ARC, etc.), and is fully mandrel bent, in stainless steel and comes with all required hardware.

AMS Carbon/Kevlar For Your GTR

26 May

AMS has done it again, this time with 2 awesome parts for the R35 GTR.

Their Carbon Kevlar roof is 9 lbs lighter than stock. Lowering the car’s center of gravity this much pays big time dividends! But it does so with class, and still accepts the factory headliner.

The Carbon Kevlar trunk continues the trend by shedding 14 lbs vs the factory trunk setup. Fit and finish is spot on, as you would expect.

Both components are offered in your choice of matte or glossy finish.

Not only one of the cleanest Evo’s out there (bar none), but it’s damn quick too. Evo 9 MR, AMS 50 Trim, etc etc etc. The go to back up the show. Naj is a good friend, long time customer, and even worked for us for awhile doing sales stuff. All around good guy, and he obviously has the gift of what it takes to put together that is clean and aggressive all at once. Props my man, it looks insane!

Hot off the presses!!! 

The AMS Subaru Rotated Mount V-band Turbo Kit is the new benchmark in Subaru performance.  Designed to meet the demanding needs of road race, drag race and street cars alike, we have successfully achieved unparalleled drivability, response, and horsepower.  Our unique design has been tested and refined for over 1 year to provide reliability, OEM like fitment and options never available in a Subaru turbo kit before.

The AMS kit brings some new ideas to the table…

V-band housings:
Each AMS Subaru Turbo Kit incorporates the latest V-band exhaust housings with options for .63, .82 or 1.06 a/r.  The Tial V-band housings not only provide the most horsepower and save weight but they eliminate the need for gaskets and are easier to install.  No more annoying exhaust leaks and no gaskets to replace!

Top Mount & Front Mount Applications:
Another innovative feature of our kit is the option of a 4ply silicone turbo outlet pipe for either a front mount or top mount intercooler.  These custom molded pieces fit better than the OEM pieces and are included at no additional charge! 

Intake Pipe Solutions:
While a unique 3” cold air intake pipe is standard we also provide an option for pull-through or push-through MAF applications.

Factory ECU & MAF Solution:
We provide the option of an industry first 4 ply silcone BOV recirculation tube for cars maintaining the factory ECU and MAF.

Each AMS Subaru Rotated Mount V-band Turbo Kit is hand built here at AMS with a meticulous attention to detail. We know what it’s like to install a turbo kit so we provide all the necessary hardware and detailed instructions for a hassle-free installation. 

With power output ranging from 350 – 650 horsepower we have just about every Subaru owner covered. On just our GT30R kit with a top mount intercooler, fuel and exhaust upgrades we were able to put down 485 whp and over 500 ft. lbs. torque! This same simple combination netted an 11.3 quarter mile time in a full weight 2007 STI on stock tires!!! Imagine what a GT35R can do!

I reminisce for a spell, or shall I say think back…

26 Aug

Just came upon some pictures of back when our good friend Tommy’s EVO was still streetable.

This car has always been heavily modded but now with the help of AMS its just {insert synonym for insane here}…

The Real Dark Knight

19 Aug

Why… so… serious?

Seriously, because this EVO X goes hardddddd. Black on Black (if someone even dares uses the phrase “murdered out” I will kick them in the balls) the total opposite of something Rick Ross would drive but who cares?

Another vehicle courtesy of one of our customers and really good friends, Paul. This is Paul’s second black on black Evo build. This car is barely a month old and its already got a set of Eibach springs, AME FS01s,  an AMS Intake, Black AMS Intercooler Pipe. an HKS EVC VI Limited Boost Controller, an HKS Exhaust and  to quote Adam “a bunch of Kansai and Ralliart goodies on the way!”  Dammmmmnnn Homie! Not bad… Feed the addiction Paul, feed it!

Just like Batman always shows up again on the big screen you can bet money that you will see this car up here on our blog with updates in no time. (Oh and BTW Paul we are shipping out your new HKS midpipe out to you today.) 🙂
