AMS / Alpha Performance is expanding into the Audi market with complete performance packages, individual components and tuning services. These will begin with the 3.0 TFSI Supercharged V6 and 4.0 TFSI Twin Turbocharged V8 engine platforms and will join the Alpha Audi V10 Turbo System.

Alpha already performs tuning services on other brands such as Mercedes-Benz, Nissan and Porsche and now Audi will join the group. The company has recently purchased a 2012 B8 S4 and 2013 C7 S6 to further look into development of performance services.

"We don't like using customer cars for development like other firms in the industry. It's a costly expense for us but we don't feel it's fair to our customers to make them guinea pigs when it comes to designing and testing parts," stated AMS VP Arne Toman.
