Default AMS 1000WHP GT-R build....lots of pics :)

I thought you guys might get a kick out of this. It's not a Subaru but still really cool


Many of you are familiar with our shop and some of the accomplishments that we have been a part of. Our most notable is most likely our Drag EVO VIII that produces over 1142 AWHP on just race gas and no nitrous (see video below). Well not a day goes by that we don't get requests to build a monster to rival that in each of the markets we deal in. The fact of the matter is that building a car like that is not just expensive but very time consuming. We would much rather work with a customer and partner up to build such a car so that not only are we doing something previously not done but putting a BIG SMILE on a customers face in the process. Thankfully we have a customer now willing to push the envelope


This lucky customer and AMS have been in talks for a couple months now on working together on the mother of all GT-R builds. Well after a meeting at SEMA this is now a reality. The goal is nothing less than 1000whp and hopefully quite a bit more. using the resources of our 20,000 square foot facility and our 30 staff members we are going to put the screws to Chuck's GT-R over the winter and produce a car worthy to stand toe to toe to just about any GT-R out there.

The preliminary plans are to use our engineering resources to build a custom Twin turbo kit carrying two of our larger Garret Framed Turbo's like the 750R, 850R or 950R. This is a very time consuming and detailed process but in the end we will have not only created a solid turbo kit for Chuck's car but as a result a solid twin turbo kit to sell to the GT-R market.

The motor will be addressed too getting the full treatment including sleeving and improving / replacing the entire rotating assembly. We have years of experience building engines. Our motors not only hold great amounts of power but more importantly LAST!! Our Time attack racing EVO VIII Engine so far has held up to over 4 years of full time Track abuse. Our EVO X sleeved motor so far has not only gone a whole season on the same engine but won the Redline time attack Modified AWD Championship!

Evo Sleeved block file photos




The big questing you all may be asking of course is transmission....what are we going to do?. Well thanks to the efforts of sponsors and companies we have worked with for years we are WELL underway in sorting out a solid transmission and clutch solution. They are still in the R&D process but this facilities capabilities are nothing short of astonishing and their budget will assist them in not only getting it done but getting it done RIGHT!

The best part of this build is that we will be documenting the process every step of the way. This is not only to keep you up to date on this great build but to show some behind the scenes footage of how AMS works and how capable we are of working on and producing parts for your car. So stay tuned to this thread and get ready for one hell of show

We just got our of an hour long meeting I like to call "The AWESOME meeting" lol
We have our plan of attack and team of guys that are going to attack Frank (white AMS GT-R) and Chucks car.

We have 30 guys here at AMS and I think a team of no less than 10 are going at these two cars.

I am beyond excited

In addition to the black 1000whp car we are building we are also strengthening the trans as well as improving the 700whp AMS GT-r owned by Frank and Mike

Franks trans is OUT and getting ready for shipment. Time to start digging into the fuel system and dropping the motor in Chucks car

This needs to be my next car. Will you keep updating this thread with videos?

Have you guys done any monster porsche 911 TT builds that approache this power level with success?

Chuck your car is now a hovercraft! lol

Ivan has been busy. Your motor is out on the bench. your rear end is out along with the transmission off to the trans shop for work. The cage was cut out of it to build and install a 8.50 cage and possibly chute. Lots of work going on over here....lots of work

The motor will now go back in the car without the oem turbos and will be passed over to our fab guys to begin turbo kit R&D

While chucks car is under the knife Justin has been hard at work prototyping IC piping and intake piping on Frank and Mikes car. The end product will have a black crinkle coat finish. very stealth.

Some more updates!

At AMS we pride ourselves on making the highest quality and most powerful parts on the market. This does not come easy but thanks to our highly qualified team and state of the art equipment we can make that a reality for any customer. One of the tools we use to achieve this goal is our portable CMM arm (coordinate measurement machine).

Our Romer portable CMM allows us to digitally plot any given area we are working with. By taking the arm and touching key points on the motor and the chassis we can digitally recreate the entire GT-R drivetrain in our CAD software. Why is this important? This allows us to make and design the best part possible using the given space constraints. The end result is a product that fits like stock, lasts the life of the car and produces the most power capable in that given area. Remember all that math in school that you thought you would never use in real life? Well we do

In chuck's case we are using this technology to create quite simply the best turbo kit available for the GT-R!

Here are some pictures of one of our engineers Drew Johnson plotting the GT-R engine bay on Chucks soon to be AMS powered 1000plus WHP GT-R!













Stay tuned for more updates!

Now that we have our digitized data from our portable CMM arm the engineers can begin designing the turbo kit. This is always my favorite part of a project as you can really see our engineers shine in their abilities.

Here are some preliminary CAD images of the digitized GT-R engine bay and the 750R Turbo's placed in their possible areas.

REALLY Cool stuff!!

Because we are not building a hand welded header and casting the pieces instead the hard engineering behind it has been focused in our CAD software. Drew has been spending countless hours trying to design the most optimum kit given our space constraints. So far his work has been nothing short of spectacular!

As you can see the header and wastegate placement are allowing us to get away with designs that would be extremely difficult to obtain with a hand fabricated piece. That coupled with the fact that it will be casted will ensure a power potent and reliable kit for years to come.

Here are some more CAD images courtesy of our engineer Drew Johnson








More updates soon to follow

Drew finished up the design of the header setup. The end result is pretty remarkable.

Completely equal length
Port matched
Smooth transitions
Ability to access the header to head bolts easily
Cast 304 Stainless steel
This design will also allow GT-R owners to retain their steering rack heat shield

ENJOY!

Well headers one and two are done being designed. The next step is for Drew to print them in our 3D printer. What is a 3D printer you ask? Well it pretty much does exactly what is sounds like. This machine we have will now take our CAD design and print a plastic composite sample.

With this sample we will now be able to test fit it on the car. If the sample fits like we think it will then its off to get quick casted. Quick casting is a VERY expensive process but it gives us a hard piece to not only install but test. This will be the set of headers that get installed on chucks car. If they fit and work well we will being with production casting

here is a sample of some previous 3D printed parts :

Subaru Intake manifolds plenums







EVO F1-I Intake manifold

Here we fiberglass wrapped the 3D print for an on car test:



Internal shots




And the final product

I have seen a lot of turbo kits in my day but I think this one is officially the coolest kit ever! These heat shields look like something out of Transformers or TRON!

Below are some more updated pictures of the turbo kit with the prototype heat shields. The production shields will not have rivets and will be welded up. This is just a sample.
Also notice the very strong but OEM like integrated turbo support bracket.

Keep in mind the turbo is just a mock up turbo so you will not see any wheels in it

I love this kit!

Yes, I will continue to update this thread with all forms of progress, vids, pics, dyno numbers etc

We have two shop porsche's here, A 996 and 997 Twin turbo. Both are getting the AMS treatment right now. Our Yellow 996 on just our stock housing bolt on turbo upgrades is making in excess of 700 whp and 600 ft lbs of torque....its AWESOME! The 997 turbo is getting small bolt on upgrades now as we continue to test the limits of the stock parts.

How do you think installation will be of the turbos while the engine is still in the car? Difficult?

The stock turbo's are almost impossible to get out without removing the engine. AMS like most shops require it. This kit will also require that
