A little while ago our GT-R customer Zac walked into our showroom inquiring about doing an ALPHA 9 package to his new 2012 GT-R. We talked over the options and in addition to the ALPHA 9 estimate I gave him he also wanted an ALPHA 9 to 10 estimate. After showing his wife the info she replied with “well why don’t you just do ALPHA 10 in the first place and save some money doing it twice?” Talk about a keeper!

Shortly after that Zac confirmed the build and Tim Salefski our in house engine builder began working up an engine for him. Zac then dropped his baby off and our technician Eric Jones was put to work. The slated modifications for the car were as follows:

On the schedule of future things to do Zac and his wife has a SLEW of CF goodies waiting for the car many of which are inbound from Japan.

It all translates into one super unique and VERY fast GT-R

Final WHP numbers were pretty impressive.

ON a very conservative 93 octane in some pretty nasty heat on the pump gas file was just shy of 800WHP!

On an equally conservative C16 race gas file at only 29lbs 1029WHP!!!

Zac and his wife have so aptly named this car Badfish after the very well known Sublime song.

In the words of Zac.

“The song is about love and addiction. In our case we are in love with the GT-R and addicted to the exhilarating feeling of acceleration. A Badfish is slang for a person who introduces someone else to something addicting. The Alpha 10 is our Badfish “

Zac we hope badfish brings you and your wife enjoyment for years to come and on behalf of everyone at AMS welcome to the ALPHA family and the 1000whp club!
