Alpha DCT Clutch Upgrade For Huracán LP610-4 and Audi R8

For over a year, we have been working on a clutch upgrade for the new Lamborghini Doppia Frizione (LDF) 7-speed dual clutch transmission (DCT) found in the 2015 Huracán LP610-4 and Audi R8.  These upgrades for the DCT gearbox are necessary to support the power output of our twin turbo systems for these two vehicles.

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.

ALPHA OMEGA: The World’s Quickest & Fastest R35 GT-R

With the Texas Speed Syndicate King of the Streets victory in the books, it was time once again to focus on the drag strip for our shop R35 GT-R ALPHA OMEGA. OMEGA bas been doing its part to really test our Alpha VR38 Billet Block Program. Typically, at these high power levels, anyone in the game knows that the engine is like a grenade with the pin pulled out.  We realized a while back we were surpassing the limits of the factory VR38 engine block.  The block was flexing, causing bearing and head gasket failures.  With our new billet block, we’ve remedied this by creating a solid foundation.

Materialmord Alpha 16 GT-R: Fastest trap speed at German 1/2 Mile Roll Race Event

On its first competition using race fuel, Materialmord’s freshly built Alpha 16 GT-R trapped an incredible 336kph (209mph) at the RACE 1000 roll race event, making it the fastest vehicle of the day!  Held near the outskirts of Berlin Germany, the RACE 1000 is a 1/2 mile roll event with many of Europe’s fastest cars in attendance. The side-by-side race had competitors engage at 100kph (62mph) and included both trap speeds and elapsed times.

Paul, owner of Materialmord, was able to cover the 1/2 mile on that same pass in 11.02 seconds – all on a relatively low 2.4 bar boost setting using our original dual fuel pump design! He explained,  “I think my GT-R is f&%@ ‘ing fast even with this low boost power on C16!”

What’s truly impressive about this GT-R is how Paul drove it round trip to and from the event for a total of 950km (520 miles)!  A true street car, the Materialmord Alpha 16 will be running even faster at the next event since he already has our newly released Omega Dual Brushless Fuel Pump System on the way! German GT-R owners, you can expect more to come from AMS/Alpha Master Dealer, Materialmord Shop as they continue to build more powerful Alpha GT-R Packages!

ALPHA PERFORMANCE AUDI C7 S6/S7 TURBO COOLER SYSTEM NOW AVAILABLE!!!

A year ago, we began studying the 4.0L TFSI twin turbo Audi C7 S6/S7 and our engineers found that neither vehicle model could sustain maximum acceleration and power output throughout extended operation or warm weather conditions due to the inadequate stock heat exchanger system. Engine performance would fall off dramatically the longer they were driven.

Alpha Performance Audi S6 Boost Cooler

To correct this problem, the Alpha Performance Audi C7 S6/S7 Turbo Cooler System consistently lowers intake temperatures, eliminating the heat soak that robs your Audi S6/S7 of horsepower. It features a premium quality, triple pass heat exchanger, an extra large coolant reservoir, and a brushless coolant pump to maximize flow rate throughout the system. The result is a cooler intake charge that improves acceleration, power and consistency while allowing your Audi S6 or S7 to operate safely no matter how hot the climate or how long you drive for!
