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.

The Ultimate Hose Clamp

Tired of your intercooler hoses blowing off on the street or track? Hate the look of unsightly T-Bolt or Worm Drive clamps? Doing a custom pipe setup and don’t want to deal with rubber or silicone interconnects? Have we got a solution for you!

Vibrant has introduced their new VanJen clamp system. Constructed entirely from T6061 aluminum, and featuring a unique Quick Release clamping mechanism, the Vibrant VanJen Clamp provides a leak-free, modular connection that is ideal for pressurized air applications. Capable of withstanding up to 110 psi. operating pressure and temperatures up to 400 deg. F, the VanJen Clamp System is ideal for turbo intake plumbing.

The VanJen Clamp System consists of 2 weld fittings (with O-Rings), one union sleeve, a safety pin and a spring loaded clamp assembly designed specifically for automotive use. Once the fittings are welded to the tubing, the union sleeve houses the fittings and is held in place by the clamp assembly. Once assembled, the VanJen Clamp System provides a flexible connection that can withstand vibration, movements along its axis, lateral misalignment and angular deflection (up to 12 deg.).

These are offered in sizes ranging from 2.5 inch outer diameter to 4 inch outer diameter, in 1/2 inch increments. These are the ultimate solution for intercooler pipes, supercharger pipes, and intakes, where you want a simple, clean, totally sealed union between 2 pipes without having to worry about silicone interconnets or unsightly worm drive clamps.

Fittings, Union Sleeves and Clamps can also be purchased as separate components – contact us for details.
