ALPHA Performance R35 GTR “16XR” Turbo Systems

Every part of the new Alpha 16XR kit is now improved. From the turbos, to the exhaust manifolds, to the intakes, to the tubes, the kit was designed to spool faster, pull more air in, and get more air out making much more horsepower than the competition..

Our Totally Redesigned Tubular Exhaust Manifold

The new 16XR kits feature 2.0 inch external diameter runners. They are not just larger but designed in a way to feed the exhaust gasses as efficiently as possible to the new “XR” kit turbos. To improve the exhaust flow even further each of the manifold’s interior is Extrude Honed to a smooth mirror like finish.

Custom ALPHA Branded 4 inch Compressor Covers

To further improve power output we designed new custom cast 4 inch ALPHA branded compressor covers. The new cover increases the compressor inlet size from 3 inch to a full 4 inch cover. The compressor discharge is also not only larger at 2.5 inches vs 2 inches but the routing of that discharge was maximized with a super smooth radius to allow the best possible flow given the space constraints of the GT-R. This is then fed into our high velocity cast 2.5 inch to 3 inch lower intercooler pipe. This new pipe offers you a drastic improvement in airflow vs its predecessor and transitions with the highest efficiency into 3″ intercooler piping.

WHP Gains Over Previous Turbochargers

The new 16XR kit utilizes two Garrett Gen II CHRA’s. The future is now! The new Alpha 16XR turbochargers do not just make more power but do so with no loss in spool. We have successfully delivered you more horsepower throughout the entire powerband!


Massive 4″ Carbon Fiber Intakes

That large 4 inch turbo inlet needed some more air to feed it. Anyone that has worked on a GT-R knows how tight it is trying to get 4 inch piping to a 4 inch compressor cover on a GT-R. Thankfully here at AMS we have the best resources available. By thoroughly laser scanning the confinements of the engine bay and designing the intakes in Solidworks© CAD (computer aided design) software, our Engineers were able to develop an organically shaped carbon fiber intake pipe to utilize all of the space available. While unconventional in its shape it has an actual 4″ cross sectional area throughout the entire pipe to deliver all the necessary air to the ALPHA 16XR turbo kits. The Carbon Fiber material itself needed to perform just as well.
Typical clear coated carbon fiber used in this industry would discolor (turn yellow) and deteriorate over time if used in this application. To get around this we sought out a high temperature polished alternative found in hard-core motorsports applications. This Hi-Temp, PrePreg material features 3-layers of 1mm Twill Weave which will sustain a 240C temperature threshold while maintaining structural integrity and maintaining aesthetic appearance without discoloration.

NO CUTTING of the Frame Rails, Works With A/C, and Power Steering

We developed the new ALPHA 16XR Turbo Systems to directly bolt in without hacking up your prized possession! Typically when you reach 1200+ HP levels drastic measures must be taken such as on our competitor’s kits where they start cutting frame rails, losing air conditioning etc. If you have to bash the frame rails on any kit in the stock location then its time to bring your car to AMS Performance.
