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.

"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.

You know the name Joel Tan (@jt_built) from his wildly popular SR20DET-swapped, ‘40s-era Willy’s Jeep that mingles among the top of Super Street’s most popular feature cars of all time, and we expect his 1972 Nissan Skyline GT-R and Toyota Trueno of the same birth year will also have a lasting impression.
