Alpha 9 Performance Package Upgrade Installation!

Check out one of our most recent performance upgrades available for your R35 GT-R!

Hello everyone! We wanted to share with you one of our recent builds we have completed. Recently, we had a customer purchase a used GT-R from us. He hasn’t even driven the car and wants to add more power! We suggested that he add the AMS Alpha9 Performance Package to his newly purchased GT-R. Without hesitation, he agreed and we began the tear down process. The customer will be bringing the GT-R back to us within a few months to perform more upgrades to maximize the potential this Alpha 9 Package has. Below we have listed the benefits and potential (with supporting mods) this package could achieve.

  • Better performance than any supercar available
  • Capable of Over 205mph in the standing mile
  • Reliable 500+ horsepower increase over stock
  • OEM-like fit and finish
  • 115% gain in horsepower with stock-like drivability
  • 9 second quarter mile achievable on pump gas

 

Modifications for this build include:

When the introduction of any new sports car on the market, we always see an influx of them over the first few months.

Our New Car Prep package, since no car is perfect from the factory. All of them wanted some level of Xpel Ultimate Paint Protection Film applied. Most of them got the entire front end covered, while a few got just the front bumper and rocker panels covered. No matter [...]

xpel, optimum, coatings, alpharetta, atlanta, paint protection film, clear braCustomer reached out to us to have his brand new Tesla protected to the extreme. He did not want to skip on anything. He wanted to make sure that all painted surfaces were completely covered and protected against rock chips in any direction. Prior to the Xpel Ultimate film going on, we did our New Car Prep package. This involved us doing a complete decontamination of the paint, followed up by polishing the paint to make sure the surface is in perfect condition prior to the Xpel film going down. This will result in a better prepped surface and the Xpel film looking better, as the gloss from the paint will help the Xpel film look even glossier. Once the Xpel Ultimate film was applied, we topped the [...]
