This invitation only event brought out the big name performance shops armed with the fastest street cars in the world all converging to one small airport in north Texas to do battle, the stage was set for another epic TI showdown.Read More
On the heels of our win at the Texas Speed Syndicate (TSS) Texas Invitational (TI) event, we decided to make the most of our 1,000+ mile trip to Texas. The tracks in Chicago had already starting degrading with the cooler weather. The opportunity to run at a well prepped track in Texas might be the last chance we would get to turn Omega loose. After a quick phone call to TSS president Amar Sood we had our chance. Amar made arrangements with Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown Texas on Monday October 6th.Read More
Brian S., Owner of the “Syonara” Top Speed Motorsport built Alpha 12 had an incredible weekend at the Wannagofast Georgia Half Mile Shootout. After countless 199.XX MPH passes Brian was able to lay down a new personal best of 202.33MPH! A huge congratulations to Brian from all of us here at AMS/Alpha Performance!!!Read More
In preparation for next month’s Texas Speed Syndicate Invitational (TI), we brought Omega out to Great Lakes Dragaway for some testing. ET’s continue to drop with the best being a 7.83@187mph. To give you an idea of the power at hand, Omega managed an incredible GT-R record-breaking 190mph trap speed on the last pass! You asked for video so here it is! Expect more to come. We are not finished yet!Read More
We have been relatively quiet with our development car ALPHA OMEGA as of late. This hasn’t been from a lack of activity just a lot of behind the scenes work. We have always known that based on the consistent record MPH Omega has put down that she has been at the top of the ladder in terms of horsepower. The trick is getting that HP to the ground and keeping the engine and driveline happy. Few know the struggles present when making in excess of 2000HP.Read More
A Solution For Your GT-R’s Achilles Heel
Keeping your fuel cool is important. If you run your GT-R in warm climates, run track events or own a GT-R with power upgrades, the Alpha Performance R35 GT-R Fuel Cooler is a must-have safety feature that will significantly reduce the chance of damaging your fuel pumps or worse – your engine!
It uses your AC system to cool the fuel temperature. It’s simple to install and use – recirculating fuel from the fuel tank to the cooler and back again so that your fuel supply remains cool. Outside of a quality tune, it’s quite possibly one of the best engine safety component you can install to keep your modified or non-modified GT-R running safely throughout some of the hottest weather conditions.Read More
We already know that a more exhilarating level of power and torque can be safely extracted from the exhaust and tuning upgrades found in our Alpha 7 package for the 2011+ CLS63 and 2012+ E63 AMG. The implementation of a much larger, more balanced and less restrictive intake system will only serve to further improve the performance of an upgraded 5.5L Biturbo ( M157 ) equipped Mercedes.
The Alpha Performance Mercedes 5.5L Biturbo Carbon Fiber Intake System was engineered to serve that purpose. We redesigned the entire intake system – not just the air filters or the filter box tops. It will be considerably larger than anything now available and will provide your AMG improved air flow dynamics for greater efficiency. What does this mean?
In our design, the cross-sectional area of the air box filter was increased by 41%. Cross-sectional area of the inlet was increased by 20%, while the outlet was increased by 25%. Each of the three sections were proportionally scaled to these sizes in order to reduce bottle-necking within the system. Unlike other intake systems or air filter upgrades, we designed it to complement stock power to over 1000 horsepower with greater efficiency than just increasing the size of the stock dimensions alone.Read More
