Thanks Sticky - I hope to test them out very thoroughly this Spring and Summer!

Got it...I'm not sure what they can do...they do work on many other manufacturers than just Nissan of course...Has anyone added 35R's to a BMW? What turbo size do you use Sticky?
Alpha 12's are...

You actually can. The Alpha 12 package is simply the turbos and piping - somewhere in the 14-15K range?
12-16-2014, 07:02 PM
This looks familiar lol...
To be accurate for everyone - this graph is in crank HP not whp.
EDIT: on the street - no discounts - the full A16 would be about 120K+ anything additional you might...

That would depend on your relationship with your Vendor (mine happens to be my friend as well as Master Tech).
Its really up to them.

Lol - I didn't even see this thread...so there you go another Alpha 16 turbo'd car at about 1400 ahwp - I'm not sure what the PSI was for this run (most are around 40-42 PSI for the "average" upper...

Lol - I agree. Although I live in Toronto - there aren't too many dyno's with more capability than 1500 awhp. Plus its also trusting the dyno and shop that owns it. I am okay with the numbers - we...

Its a good question...I think its fair to say what the dyno type is (its limits) is a big part. The dyno we are on is a 1500 awhp max dyno - and it is struggling to hit that number. ETS and AMS - I...

So far - no. With three guys sitting in the trunk to tires added on top of it - it spins very hard - in the exact same spot every time. Shredding my tires in the process (R888's). I was told DR's are...
12-16-2014, 04:10 PM
Thanks Sticky - yes, it has done well. The 1383 awhp picture shows how significant the spin is - and when I drew a simply smooth curve from where the dip starts to where it would hit without that dip...

Here's an update...with at least 6-9 PSI left on the table - and although the season is over - it seems Apex Motoring has built me a solid car.
You will be able to see the wheel spin on the...

Something people may not know is that VIR was completely repaved before this years Lightening Lap. As nice as it is to see the GTR do well - I have to be unbiased and state that a repaved track can...

That is unlikely. The good thing about doing this sort of work is - if done properly - you can upgrade to an A14, 16 or even 20. The Sonny Bryant 4.1 has done quite well when FULLY built.

Here's a new AMS Alpha 12 ET record...

Alpha 12 world record ET run...
08-19-2014, 11:26 PM
It is...and the DSM cars were pretty insane as well - there was one chassis !G car that ran a 7 second pass at 180 MPH - and many were in the 8's.
The GTR's are getting bigger there every year....
08-19-2014, 11:09 PM
An all AMS final - with a super boosted Alpha 12 and Alpha 16...it's a GREAT race!
08-19-2014, 11:08 PM
Semi-final - and ETS who has the more powerful car is set to win against the AMS Alpha 16 owned and driven by Gidi...

Onto the quarters and ETS shows it has the car to beat;

Gidi's AMS Alpha 16 turns it up to qualify second with a blistering 8.2 at 179 MPH;
