Alpha customer, Gary Dhillon, recently broke into the 8’s with his Alpha 12 GT-R.

Although he notes that he may lose this title to a more powerful Canuck Alpha 16 shortly, Gary has more upgrades in the works to up the ante and something to say about his yellow wrapped, daily driver GT-R built by Apex Motoring and tuned by Magnus Motorsports.

Nissan R35 GT-R & NISMO Chief Product Specialist Hiroshi Tamura visits AMS!

Earlier last week, we were contacted by a friend of the shop, Mr. Brian Wise with an amazing opportunity. Thanks to a long layover, his friend, NISMO’s very own Chief Product Specialist Mr. Hiroshi Tamura would be in the Chicago area. Mr. Tamura is a legend in the GT-R Community. Having been the driving force behind the R34 and the current mind behind the NISMO GT-R and All NISMO models, he carries a resume that would thoroughly impress any Nissan fan. A tuner at heart, Mr. Tamura actually owns an R32 Skyline making 600hp. He appreciates what companies like AMS do and respects the skillset needed to do so.
