AMS Alpha Race Front Mount Intercooler for 2008+ R35 GT-R


Quick Overview

Sku # : AMS-Alpha-Intercooler-GTR-ER3
AMS Logo
This AMS Alpha GT-R Race Intercooler was designed to be the best performing intercooler on the market.  AMS Engineers were successful, creating a intercooler so massive and efficient, no other intercooler on the market can match its cooling power.  The Alpha intercooler is the best answer to those GT-R's that are running in hot weather or over 900 HP.
  • 22”x14”x4.5” core dimension
  • Cast & sheet metal aluminum
  • Fits without trimming factory crash beam and bumper cover
  • Requires minimal trimming of plastic OEM shroud
  • Works with Alpha GT-R piping or any aftermarket 3" intercooler piping following stock routing


  • 2009+ Nissan R35 GT-R
Kit Includes
  • Front Mount Intercooler
  • 4-Ply silicone couplers
  • Murray Turbo Seal hose clamps
  • Shroud and bridge plates
  • Mounting brackets
  • Fasteners and mounting hardware
  • Horn relocation brackets

At AMS we employ a team of mechanical engineers who have a passion for perfection in form and function. They set out to design an entire package with two goals in mind; maximum power delivery and response with perfect fitment. Every aspect of the project was scrutinized and then optimized to yield the best results.

AMS engineering team designed the Alpha GT-R Intercooler end tanks with extremely smooth features and geometry for the best flow resulting in maximum horsepower. Designed using Solidworks 3D CAD software, these end tanks have improved flow over boxy sheet metal end tanks found on other intercoolers. These large end tanks feature 3-inch CNC billet inlet and outlet ports to provide a smooth, tapered transition from intake to intercooler. Their team went even further by computer designing precisely molded, custom silicone couplers to provide perfect fitment and optimized geometry for improved airflow volume and velocity - providing unmatched power and response.

Intercooler Core
To effectively reduce charged air temperatures, we employed a vertical airflow design for maximum cooling effect with a massive 22”x14”x4.5" bar-and-plate core offering 92.5% more air volume than a stock pair of GT-R intercoolers! The core offers up to twice the fin density of most intercoolers currently on the market. This allows for more contact with cool, dense air and it does so with virtually no boost pressure drop (less than 1 psi) proliferating the most ground pounding power output you can get for your GT-R!

The Details
This intercooler kit takes full advantage of the GT-R’s available frontal area while improving functionality of the stock intercooler shroud. For even better channeling of air, a supplied bridge plate and shroud plates create a tight seal surrounding the core. This seal ensures that cool air entering the shroud is funneled through the core. The plates stop air from escaping through the sides, above and below the intercooler maximizing the efficiency and effectiveness of the intercooler core. These are features often overlooked by the competition. All of this in a package that does NOT require cutting of the factory crash beam or bumper cover.

Aggressive Looks
When you buy an Alpha Race Intercooler not only will you get the benefits of unmatched performance and the most well engineered product in its class, we also incorporate the prestigious AMS logo that peeks out from the front of your supercar. Be warned though, it might scare your competition away!

Quality / Integrity / Results
Just like all Alpha GT-R components, there is absolutely no doubt about durability, reliability and fitment of this package! AMS Alpha GT-R Race Intercooler mounts firmly to the core support with gusseted aluminum brackets. All 4-ply silicone couplers provide superior strength and fasten securely using Murray Turbo Seal clamps. The intercooler itself is pressure tested to 50psi and checked for leaks in order to pass inspection. All of this is done to ensure your Alpha GT-R Race Intercooler lasts the lifetime of your GT-R!
