    • AMS Performance wrapping up Audi R8 V10 Alpha Twin Turbo kit aiming for 900 horsepower

      We are glad to see AMS paying more and more attention to the German performance car market. They currently are working on their twin turbo kit for the Audi R8 V10. This is currently a stock internal kit tuned on the stock ECU. Power is said to be around the 900 horsepower mark and although there is a video of the car on the dyno below no graphs were posted supporting this number. It is definitely attainable and we do not doubt AMS in hitting it.

      This would make a new entry into the market for V10 Twin Turbo kits for the Audi R8 that currently has Underground Racing and Heffner in the mix. If AMS is able to do for the R8 market what they did for the GTR... well, it will definitely up the ante. We look forward to seeing this completed.

        I remember reading something about it about 2 months ago with no real details on another forum. But I saw these videos in my YouTube feed and did some google'ing and this is what I came up with.

        It's the exact same motor. I personally want a TT T8 V10... that or a supercharged SLS. Well, it's fun to day dream eh?

        I know they are the same motor. Just stating that the number of twin turbo R8's i've seen is quite small compared to TT Gallardo's. a TT R8 V10 would be so sexy...

        The number is smaller as the Gallardo has been out longer with the V10 and the Audi ECU was different or encrypted differently. It took them longer to crack for whatever reason.
