The Audi R8 ALPHA 12 Twin Turbo System

As standard, the ALPHA 12 Twin Turbo Package for the Audi R8 makes 1200+ HP (approx. 1175 to 1275 to the wheels) on e85 ethanol fuel and with the included Flex Fuel feature, you can expect 925 HP (approx. 850-925 to the wheels) when running on 93 octane gasoline.* This power equates to endlessly repeatable mid-8 second quarter mile runs with a proper wheel and tire set up, and the appropriate safety equipment.

Available as a turn-key package, The ALPHA 12 has been developed as a bolt-in solution that can be rapidly installed at AMS Performance, or at your local select AMS certified installer. No modifications to the chassis or emissions systems are necessary, and our team has worked diligently to make sure our ALPHA 12 components have a fit and finish better than OEM. We keep as much as is possible of the ALPHA 12 system in stock and ready to be installed on your vehicle as soon as you are ready to start your build. As your transmission gearbox will be used as a core to build with, some turnaround time is necessary. However, there will be no months long wait times for fabrication, or excuses from parts vendors, like you’ve heard about with other shops and their nightmare build stories.

Engineered to Win

Our Snailworks© Engineering Team has spent hundreds of R&D hours refining the ALPHA 12 Twin Turbo Package to be the best performing, highest quality, and easiest to install kit on the market. Focusing on component and materials selection is crucial, and is why we have selected top tier components as the foundation of our system, like the Garrett intercooler cores and turbochargers, along with TiAL wastegates and blow off valves, and a high flow brushless water pump for maximum performance and reliability. Everything has been thought of, even down to the fine details like tungsten ceramic coating and line sheathing for superior heat management.

Our team has gone the extra mile to develop innovative new solutions to problems found when adding forced induction to the 5.2 FSI V10 engine found in the Audi R8. One of the things we saw during the development phase was a substantial air leak at the intake manifold flange due to the now positive air pressure within the manifold. To solve this, we developed a beautifully machined and anodized aluminum ring which fits around each intake runner gasket to provide additional sealing pressure. We chose to engineer and machine an elegant solution while competitors take the easy way out and use silicone to essentially glue the manifold pieces together.


Flex-Fuel Hardware and Calibration for Automated Ethanol Operation

The ALPHA Fuel System included in the ALPHA 12 Package has been developed by our talented AMS Snailworks® Engineering Team as a complete system, but with a modular approach. This complete fuel system has four separate subcomponents – the Twin Pump Kit at the fuel tank, the Fuel Pressure Regulator and Fuel Line Kit in the engine bay, the Fuel Rail Kit on the intake manifold, and a Flex Fuel Kit add-on for ethanol fuel usage. While these four main subcomponents are available to purchase separately, they have all been designed to fit together seamlessly as a complete system.

The benefit of developing a system in this manner is that we can reimagine how the system fits and works together to optimize vehicle-wide systems to improve fuel flow, drivability, and ease-of-use. There are a number of extremely restrictive components within the factory fuel system which our reimagined ALPHA Fuel System reroutes, removes, or replaces to vastly increase fuel throughput. Another of the key features of the ALPHA Fuel System is the ability to have OEM-like siphon system functionality, without the highly restrictive fuel flow of the OEM system. Because we have been able to re-engineer the entire fuel system as a complete unit, we can provide fuel to both sides of the saddle tank equally, keeping the fuel pump assembly full of fuel at all times. Where other builder’s kits use impractical and potentially dangerous external surge tanks, or can’t be driven below half a tank without fuel starving, the ALPHA Fuel System solves these issues by way of our advanced engineering.

This complete ALPHA Fuel System when used in conjunction with the MoTeC M142 engine management system allows the ALPHA 12 to facilitate a completely automated flex fuel solution to run gasoline, E85, or any mixture of gas and ethanol with a content rating from 0 to 100% ethanol. This gives you the ability to run E85 or other blend of ethanol fuel without having to worry about manually measuring and calculating your ethanol content percentage. The integrated ethanol sensor informs your vehicle’s MoTeC ECU on the content percentage, and the custom AMS Flex Fuel calibration will automatically adjust parameters like fueling, boost, and timing to produce the most power possible for a given fuel or mixture of fuels. These adjustments happen seamlessly in the background of your flex fuel tune allowing you to be flexible with what fuel you utilize in your V10. This is a set-it-and-forget-it flex fuel solution that requires no adjustment once installed and tuned.


Advanced Motorsports Feature Set via MoTeC Standalone ECUs

With the ALPHA 12 Package, there is nothing additional needed as we are providing an all inclusive solution with all parts, labor, and tuning services. The ALPHA 12 Package comes with all necessary ECU and TCU hardware, software, and our expert calibration service on our in-house dynamometer (remote service available for AMS Certified Installers). While the factory ECU is an excellent choice for many customers, at a certain point, the advanced functionality and features of a standalone Engine Management System (EMS) solution become a necessity. The Dual MoTeC M142 EMS has a number of benefits that the factory ECU does not, ranging from the ability to utilize flex-fuel, or advanced motorsport traction control, to a wide array of fail safes such as an added safety trip for excessive temperature readings. These perks and safety features give you the confidence and peace of mind necessary when you are behind the wheel, sitting at the starting line.

The MoTeC M142 kit is a complete replacement for the two factory ECUs, utilizing existing wiring, sensors and mounting hardware to deliver plug-in convenience with fully programmable control. The M142 ECUs are supplied with our own AMS Standalone Install & Sensor Kit, providing for additional functionality by way of sensor monitoring and improved safety measures. This proprietary installation kit takes the MoTeC system to the next level by making install a breeze and including extra sensors that we feel are necessary to operate a V10 safely in a motorsports environment.

The dual M142 kit is comprised of a Primary ECU, in which all tuning adjustments are made, and a Secondary ECU that mimics settings from the Primary. This mirrors how Audi and Lamborghini have configured the vehicle from the factory, with an engine computer controlling each bank. After initial setup, only the Primary ECU requires connection to M1 Tune for adjustments. Along with fuel, ignition and camshaft control, this kit also supports other OE ECU feature such as cruise control, A/C, adjustable driving modes (Strada, Sport, Corsa), and all OE dash functionality and warning lights.

In addition to these OE system integrations, the MoTeC M142 EMS allows us to include advanced motorsport features that can improve traction and acceleration, boost control, and even transmission shifting. The advanced launch control and traction control features allow our calibrators to configure acceleration characteristics at a true motorsports level. We also have the ability to utilize MoTeC’s Level 3 internal datalogging feature, which allows for laptop-less logging of over 900 parameters that can be used for monitoring, diagnosis, and improving the performance of the vehicle via testing.


Titanium Exhaust Upgrade

Exceptionally lightweight and extremely strong, titanium is the ultimate material for supercar exhausts. Not only is the aesthetic improved, but titanium piping offers a uniquely exotic exhaust note that is sure to turn heads. Where others are charging $10,000 or more for custom titanium exhaust options, our AMS ALPHA Twin Turbo Kit Titanium Exhaust is available as an add-on for a fraction of the cost.
