The Alpha R35 GT-R Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake was designed to draw a higher volume of cool air into the stock turbochargers while improving the metering capability of the factory Mass Airflow (MAF) sensors. With this intake installed, bulky air filter boxes are replaced with their high flow dry media filters and carbon fiber tubing. This eliminates clutter within the engine bay while drawing cooler air from outside. Increasing the cross sectional area of the tubing allows the factory MAF sensors to accurately meter air flow up to and over 1000HP! A vast improvement over the stock intake system.The OEM manufacturer spends a lot of time reducing turbo noise at the expense of horsepower. By allowing the turbos to ingest all the cold air they need, the Alpha Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake boosts power significantly. In addition, it allows you to hear the turbos spool up while bypassing valve venting – something you as an enthusiast can truly appreciate.
Since the intake pipes are close to the exhaust manifold, they selected a motorsports grade carbon fiber that is both hand-laid and high temperature resistant. Other options on the market use the typical gloss clear coated carbon fiber prone to discoloration and cracking. The Alpha Intakes use 3-layers of 1mm twill weave prepreg carbon fiber capable of sustaining a 240C temperature threshold while maintaining structural integrity and aesthetic appearance with no worry of fading or yellowing over time.
AMS Performance specifically designed this intake for a hassle-free installation. Some intakes on the market require removal of the front bumper which is a serious endeavor. With this intake you can expect an easy install without cutting, trimming or taking off your bumper. It can be installed with basic hand tools in minutes! Couple that with a purpose built, reusable synthetic high-flow dry media filter, you’ll no longer have to purchase cheap factory paper filters down the road. Just one more reason why our intake is the best option on the market.
Originally designed to complement the Alpha 7 Performance Package which maximizes performance of the factory Nissan GT-R turbos, this intake also supports well over 1000HP! Couplers are compatible with factory turbo inlet pipes (2011 and older & the larger 2012+) as well as other aftermarket inlets which use the stock 2 bolt compressor/turbo inlet suction pipe configuration.
Should you ever exceed the limits of the stock MAF sensors, the Alpha R35 GT-R Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake can easily be upgraded to operate as speed density by simply adding the Alpha R35 GT-R MAF Block-Off Plates.
Because the pipe size offsets the calibration of the factory MAF sensor, it requires an aftermarket ECU calibration.
