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!

Kristin Schultz from Boostin’ Performance is at it again.  She took her BP built & tuned, daily driven Alpha 10 GTR back to Great Lakes Dragaway in Union Grove Wisconsin to improve her already stellar dragstrip results.  Running on E85 fuel she ran 3 passes in the 8.6 range with a best of 8.63@161 MPH, a new personal best!

This GT-R has all of the comforts and amenities found in a stock GT-R (heated seats, radio, heat/AC, etc) and rides smooth as stock, but with a lot more horsepower thanks to the Alpha 10 Turbo Kit and Alpha GT-R Race FMIC.  Congratulations Kristin and the team over at Boostin’ Performance on building one fast and consistent R35 GT-R! We think it is safe to say you’ve earned your Alpha Elite member status a few times over!

NOW AVAILABLE: Alpha Performance GT-R Air/Oil Separator

The Alpha Performance GT-R Air/Oil Separator is designed to remove oil vapor from your VR38’s crankcase before it ends up in your intake tubes and combustion chamber.  Oil vapor blow-by can have a detrimental effect on your engine – reducing power output and even causing harmful detonation by altering your air/fuel ratio.

Remove The Oil Vapor Blow-by, Increase The Power!

Even if your car is stock, you’ll find an oil film in your intake tract due to the inadequate factory PCV system.  As boost increases so do oil vapors.  If you are using ethanol based fuels and/or are using a rebuilt aftermarket engine the problem gets worse. Much worse.  Usually the problem surfaces with oil coming out of your blow off valves making an oily, stinky mess in your engine bay.

Maintenance Free Oil Recovery

To solve the problem of excess oil vapor blow-by, our 3 tier design (air inlet, air outlet, reservoir base) effectively separates the oil discharging it back into your oil pan where it belongs.  Often when installing a typical “oil catch can” the oil just sits in the reservoir until it is manually drained.  By incorporating our oil drain back system (with check valve) you never have to worry about draining your oil catch can.  This lessens your chance of running low on oil or the can overflowing into your engine bay.

Built To Last The Life Of Your GT-R

The CNC billet aluminum body of the Alpha GT-R Air/Oil Separator is black anodized for corrosion resistance and a stealthy look.  We also use high quality seals and AN fittings.  An Alpha logo is machined into the top as a nice finishing touch to your engine bay.

Simple Installation

Because we use all the existing OEM ports, plumbing is made simple.  We include all the brackets, lines and hardware for a turn-key solution.

Do it right the first time, order your Alpha GT-R Air/Oil Separator today!

 

Product Release: Alpha Performance R35 GT-R Big Bore Billet Throttle Bodies

With quite a number of GT-Rs producing more than double the horsepower of a stock GT-R these days, there’s been little attention placed on improvements to the restrictive stock throttle bodies.

Double the horsepower? Triple? Quadruple the horsepower? Most likely, the entire induction system on GT-Rs of these calibers have been enlarged to accommodate the air flow necessary to produce such levels of performance except for the throttle bodies . . . the one gateway that charged air must pass through before entering into the engine has been for the most part, left untouched and lacking in functionality.

Alpha Performance R35 GT-R Big Bore Throttle Bodies were designed to work with our Carbon Fiber GT-R Intake Manifold or any other aftermarket manifold in which the inlets can be machined to match the massive 73.5mm (ID) bore size. They are the largest throttle bodies available in the market. Installing them alleviates the bottleneck created by stock or ported throttle bodies – significantly improving the overall function and efficiency of your entire induction system.

The more horsepower your GT-R engine and turbo system is capable of, the better your Alpha Big Bore Throttle Bodies will perform! With 50% more cross sectional area, and equipped with low profile throttle body shafts, they may be the next or final piece needed to unleash the power of your VR38 engine.  For more information, visit: Alpha Performance R35 GT-R Big Bore Throttle Bodies
