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.

Finding specialized technicians and experts to guide you through the process of building your advanced 7-speed DL800 Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) can be hard, which is why AMS has developed the all-new AMS Gearworks program! With decades of high-performance automotive experience, the products and services AMS has offered have dominated every single platform they’ve been aimed at. Countless world records and motorsport championship wins prove to our customers that they are getting the absolute best the performance aftermarket has to offer. It has been a natural progression for us to now accommodate gearbox building services in addition to our award winning performance packages, all under one roof. As part of our AMS Gearworks DL800 build program, AMS can provide transport logistics to ship your gearbox to us to start the build process. Alternatively if you would prefer to have our technicians handle the complete process, we can even arrange to transport your entire vehicle for a total door-to-door solution.

The Alpha Stage 1 upgrade for the DL800 is the starting point of transmission performance for the R8 & Huracan. Designed for naturally aspirated, supercharged, or basic bolt-on twin turbo applications, the Alpha Stage 1 allows for piece of mind when pushing your supercar to the limit. Our AMS Gearworks technicians utilize the Dodson Billet A & B Clutch Baskets installed with the factory clutch frictions and steels. This allows for substantially increased torque holding capability while still keeping the car driving and sounding like stock. It really is the best of both worlds!

The Dodson A & B Clutch Baskets

The ALPHA Stage 1 transmission utilizes upgraded billet baskets from Dodson for additional strength and reliability. The OEM baskets are notorious for breaking at the spline section and coming apart at higher power levels. The Dodson billet A & B baskets replace both factory baskets with extra strong billet aluminum pieces, resulting in exceptional strength and removing a common failure point on the DL800.
