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.
Introducing the ALPHA 9 Audi R8 Twin Turbo Package! The ALPHA Packages have dominated every single platform they’ve been built for. Countless world records and motorsport championship wins prove to our customers that they are getting the absolute best the performance aftermarket has to offer. The ALPHA 9 Twin Turbo Package for the Audi R8 has been painstakingly engineered and tested to OEM levels of quality, reliability and drivability. Using the same components that are found in our ALPHA Twin Turbo Kit, this package has been developed by our in-house engineers to provide a turn-key solution for excellent drivability and road manners at 900+ horsepower. The ALPHA 9, sets a new standard in usable supercar performance.
As standard, the ALPHA 9 Twin Turbo Package for the Audi R8 makes 900 HP (approx. 825-850 to the wheels) on regular 93 octane pump gasoline and with the optional Map Switching feature, you can expect 950 HP (approx. 875-900 to the wheels) when tuned on 100 octane. This power equates to a blistering 4.69 second 60-130 mph time, and endlessly repeatable mid 9 second quarter mile runs even on standard street tires. The best part is your R8 will drive exactly like stock around town until it turns into a rocket ship when you go wide open throttle.
Available as a turn-key package, The ALPHA 9 has been developed as a bolt-in solution that can be installed in days instead of months 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 9 components have a fit and finish better than OEM. This system is kept in stock and ready to be installed on your vehicle as soon as you are ready to start your build. No months long wait times for fabrication, or excuses from parts vendors, like you’ve heard nightmare stories of from other shops.
Our SnailWorks© Engineering Team has spent hundreds of R&D hours refining the ALPHA 9 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.
With the ALPHA 9 Package, there is nothing additional needed as we are providing an all inclusive solution with all parts, labor, and tuning services. The ALPHA 9 Package comes with all ECU and TCU hardware and software, as well as our expert calibration service on our in-house dynamometer. (Remote service available for AMS Certified Installers)
When developing our V10 Twin Turbo solutions, we were faced with the question of whether to use a standalone Engine Management System (EMS) or to keep the factory ECU intact. While a standalone EMS does have its perks, the factory ECU has a number of benefits that the standalone does not. Notably, the cost of the build is substantially reduced by using factory ECU tuning. With a MoTeC EMS totaling over $10,000 for hardware alone, it’s easy to see how retaining the factory ECU may be the best option. The factory ECU also allows for total and complete control over all vehicle systems. No need to worry if certain modes, or emissions systems will be recognized and communicate with the factory ECU.
We found that the most requested feature from our customers was to have the ability to change maps on-the-fly for high and low boost levels, or for different fuel types. Our team was able to develop the world’s first stock ECU Map Switching feature for the V10 platform which allows you to quickly and easily select one of four standard maps without leaving the driver’s seat. Choose the best map for how you’re using the vehicle by selecting from “Valet,” “91 octane,” “93 octane,” or “100 octane” fuel maps. Watch as Martin gives you a tour of this new feature that takes just seconds to complete.
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.
