No, especially not if it could yield the same 60ft time

Topspeed is the best! The torque on your car is astonishing for bolt ons

I'm confused as to what you're saying. A stock Jag will not keep up with a stock GTR.

It did not take long for me to get a custom to my last set of modifications (E85 tune, DPs, FMIC, injectors, etc.), so I contacted my buddy Cicio @ TopSpeed and we discussed what to do next in my quest for more power! Once the GT-R makes over 630 ft lbs of torque to wheels the OEM rods will eventually fail, so in order to go any further I will need to build the bottom end of the engine and beef up the transmission. It's a big step and comes with a big price tag, but fortunately I have the skills and the tools to do the job myself. It's a little nerve racking, requires a lot of time, and research... but in the end it will all be worth it.

So....off I go tearing down a brand new 2012 with 3500 miles on it! LOL

I will continue to update this thread as I progress with the build. Enjoy the photos!

That is crazy yanking the engine at 3500 miles. The quest for more speed continues.

Wow! What a job. I can't wait to see the results. You are certainly going with the best parts. AMS is amazing and I have heard very good things about Sheptrans. Is this going to be a full alpha10 package?

Mike - i see you decided to go AMS 10 also! haha... i knew quite a few guys that have their cars there right now.

Just out of curiosity... why did you decide on the AMS10 > the AMS12? I know the 12 is a little bit more of a true race engine but i believe it could be tuned down for streetable purposes correct?

Alpha 10 is a good low 9 second car! Are you going to run e85 on the alpha 10?

It cost a lot more since it comes with a larger bore block 3.8>4.0, CNC heads, and a slightly larger turbo. Yes, it's just as streetable.

Yes. I want be able to make use of all the power since my fuel system will be a limitation. E85 requires about 30% more fuel over say 93 or MS109. I will have a high boost tune for MS109.

Shep tells me I should get the tranny back early next week and I'm moving along pretty well on the engine build. I want to give a shout out to Ritchie Griffin for helping me build this engine!

Engine is done!






Turbos, downpipes, wastegates!








Ready to go back in the car.

Here are some photos on the Alpha 10 kit with the heat shield in place.
