[email protected], 3.46 60-130 and 1318whp! Video Inside!

As many of you know we have been working the VR38 motor program with the recent issues of the Nissan block cracking under extreme HP / Cylinder pressures . Our engineers and technicians have been hard at work and developed a new way to reinforce the block. We wanted to test this new theory and really put the car through its paces. The only way we know how to do that is to abuse it on the dyno and the track!

Last night we strapped the revised ALPHA 12 package to the dyno. The test vehicle was our own 2009 Nissan GT-R. Chris began tuning and the numbers just kept getting higher and higher. The final result was a Whopping 1318WHP at only 35 psi of boost in VERY hot Dyno room!

The dyno only tells so much though. We wanted to really put the package to the test so we loaded her up in the trailer and took her to the track where Ivan was instructed to put the HP to the test. Over the next 4 hours Ivan put down no less than 10 LOW 9 second passes all above the 160 mph mark. On every pass he reported traction was horrible. Still Ivan hot lapped her one pass after the other... over and over... 9.0, 9.0,9.1,9.0.. You get the idea

The ALPHA 12 was making so much power it would not get 100% traction until 5th gear!!! To make matters worse the weather was horrible... High humidity and a heat index north of 90 degrees created a hot and greasy track. Even with these condition the ALPHA 12 was able to reset the worlds fastest and quickest GT-R with a best time of [email protected]!

If that wasn't enough we checked the V-box time on that record pass and we improved our 60-130 time to 3.46 Seconds!!!!!!

All in all it was a great day. The ALPHA 12 was put through a 12 round prize fight and came out still swinging!

Below is the dyno chart from last nights session. Peak boost was 35 psi as it was run today. The car can run more boost but with traction being an issue we never had a chance to raise it.

I have also attached the time slip from the best pass at the track.

We are hoping to get her back to the track very soon once we can get some more favorable weather conditions. I will keep everyone posted!

That is some extreme engineering...nice job! Can you elaborate on what you did to the block to reinforce it? Or is that hush hush...

That is hush hush at the moment.... truth be told I don't know that it will be released.

As for the tires they are M&H drag radials. 325 in the rear and 275 in the front

Wow. Do you guys accept souls as a type of formal payment?
Oh god THIS x10000000 :+1::+1::+1:

you guys should race switzer....
Good idea. :D

God I wish it was that easy. If the car lost 1500 lbs maybe...lol
Put the car on a DIET? You ALREADY have traction issues in gears most BIG block/RWD cars don't have problems with.


Holy jesus AMS....you all made my day with this thread. What's the going rate for the Alpha 12 package?

I am curious if the temp was better and you had wider meats mid 8 have to be there. Losing 1500 lol is a ton. I bet if you can get more grip lose say 300 lbs and maybe up the power even more at say 38lbs you have a shot. Regardless it's a fire breating tarmac raping animal and you should be proud.

Just for giggles at what whp do you deem the stock block to be a risk.

Glad to hear this made your day!

That kind of a diet would be almost impossible lol.

If we were building a drag only car we would need to put smaller brakes on the car so we can get some slicks under it. At this point i think we have the biggest stickiest tire available. Once we get the car to a well prepped track we will be good.

We really just want to see eights in a street car.
