With 23 years of documented research and development in the forced induction field, AMS Performance has proven itself as the powerhouse in the automotive aftermarket. Our award winning performance systems are what all others are measured by.
Whether you live in a hot climate region, enjoy drag racing, or long high speed pulls on airstrips the AMS Performance Nissan Z Heat Exchanger will help keep your intake temps lower and maintain your Z’s maximum power output no matter the conditions. Your 3.0L twin turbocharged engine does not use the typical air-to-air front mount intercooler (FMIC) you may be used to. Like many modern turbocharged vehicles the Nissan Z uses coolant to cool the intake air charge through an air-to-water heat exchanger. While this method may be sufficient for a stock vehicle under ideal conditions, it can quickly become heat soaked — robbing horsepower.
AMS Performance is an engineering company first. We have built our over 20 year reputation as a leading motorsports aftermarket component manufacturer by creating the highest performing parts through a focused engineering approach to design. This design method allows us to include features not found in any other kits on the market, including billet 6061 T6 aluminum end tanks for improved fitment and aesthetics, and an easily accessible screw valve for easy system bleeding. Where others use a cheap universal core and low-grade sheet metal end tanks, the AMS Snailworks© Engineering Team have put together a system that uses the highest quality materials for years of trouble free operation.
While the AMS Performance Nissan Z Heat Exchanger is significantly larger than OEM, our Engineering Team set out to make the Z Heat Exchanger upgrade as simple as possible to install. The new unit fits in the same location as the factory core, allowing for maximum compatibility with oil coolers, A/C components, and parking assist sensors. By using the factory mounting points you or your trusted mechanic can install it quickly and easily. The heat exchanger simply slides in and bolts into the factory mounting holes, and then gets connected to your existing factory hose routing. For a heat exchanger of this size, you don’t get a cleaner or more simple installation than that!
Maximizing available space to create a larger heat exchanger surface area for cool air to pass through can be a challenge in a confined space like the front end of the new Z. For the core of the AMS Performance Nissan Z Heat Exchanger we chose a motorsport quality heat exchanger core made in the UK. This high efficiency, single pass core is much larger and dissipates heat quickly for maximum cooling. Through our larger design, added fluid capacity, and drastically increased flow, your 3.0L VR30 twin turbocharged engine benefits from reduced intake air temperatures (IAT), boosting your power output.
By doubling the thickness of the OEM core and increasing the frontal surface area by 42%, you gain an extraordinary amount of added cooling efficiency. The AMS Heat Exchanger core and end tanks hold an astounding 200% more coolant than the stock heat exchanger. You gain increased thermal capacity for the entire intercooler system by accommodating this additional coolant. Whether you live in a hot climate region, enjoy drag racing, or long high speed pulls on airstrips the AMS Performance Nissan Z Heat Exchanger will help keep your intake temps lower and maintain your Z’s maximum power output no matter the conditions.
