AMS Performance Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake for R35 Nissan GT-R

The Alpha R35 GT-R Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake by AMS Performance was specifically engineered to enhance the airflow to the stock turbochargers by drawing a greater volume of cool air. Additionally, it improves the metering capability of the factory Mass Airflow (MAF) sensors. This intake system replaces the bulky air filter boxes with high flow dry media filters and carbon fiber tubing, resulting in a clutter-free engine bay and the intake of cooler external air. By increasing the cross-sectional area of the tubing, the factory MAF sensors can accurately measure airflow even beyond 1000HP, making it a significant upgrade over the stock intake system.

AMS Performance boasts an impressive 21-year track record of dedicated research and development in the field of forced induction. Their exceptional performance systems have garnered recognition and set the benchmark for others in the automotive aftermarket industry.

Listen To Your Turbos Sing

  • In order to minimize turbo noise, the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) invests considerable effort, often sacrificing horsepower in the process. However, the Alpha Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake takes a different approach by enabling the turbochargers to intake an abundant supply of cold air, resulting in a substantial power increase. Furthermore, this intake system allows you, as an enthusiast, to fully appreciate the distinct sound of the turbo spooling up, while also bypassing valve venting—a feature that adds to the overall experience.

Motorsports High Temp Carbon Fiber

  • AMS made a deliberate choice of utilizing motorsports-grade carbon fiber for the intake pipes due to their proximity to the exhaust manifold. This carbon fiber is not only hand-laid but also designed to withstand high temperatures. Unlike alternative options available in the market that employ gloss clear coated carbon fiber, which is susceptible to discoloration and cracking, AMS’s Alpha Intakes are crafted using a 3-layer construction of 1mm twill weave prepreg carbon fiber. This advanced carbon fiber material can endure temperatures up to 240°C without compromising structural integrity or aesthetic appeal. Rest assured, there are no concerns of fading or yellowing over time with these Alpha Intakes.

For Use With All Stock 2 Bolt Compressor Housings

  • Initially developed as a perfect companion to their Alpha 7 Performance Package, which optimizes the performance of the original Nissan GTR turbos, this intake system is also fully compatible with power levels exceeding 1000HP! The included couplers are designed to seamlessly fit with both the factory turbo inlet pipes (for models up to 2011 and the larger 2012+ versions) and various aftermarket inlets that utilize the stock 2 bolt compressor/turbo inlet suction pipe configuration.

Upgrade To Speed Density Down The Road

  • In the event that you surpass the capabilities of the stock MAF sensors, the Alpha R35 GTR Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake offers a straightforward option for an upgrade to operate as speed density. This upgrade enables the intake system to rely on alternate methods of measuring airflow, providing flexibility and accommodating higher performance requirements.

Easy Installation and Maintenance

  • AMS put special emphasis on designing this intake for a hassle-free installation process. Unlike certain intakes available in the market that necessitate the removal of the front bumper, which can be a daunting task, AMS’s intake ensures a straightforward installation without the need for cutting, trimming, or bumper removal. You can expect a seamless installation experience using basic hand tools, with the entire process taking only a few minutes. Moreover, the intake is equipped with a purpose-built, reusable synthetic high-flow dry media filter, eliminating the need to repeatedly purchase inexpensive factory paper filters. This aspect further solidifies their intake as the top choice available in the market.

ECU Tuning Required

  • Due to the deviation in pipe size, the factory MAF sensor calibration is offset, necessitating an aftermarket ECU calibration for proper functionality. While AMS highly recommend using the Cobb AccessPort for this purpose, it’s important to note that the intake is compatible with all other ECU calibration solutions available in the market as well.


  • Air flow to support over 1000HP
  • Polished high-temp motorsports grade carbon fiber
  • Easy install requiring no trimming, cutting or bumper removal
  • Turbo and blow-off valve (BOV) more audible
  • 4 lb. weight savings over stock

  • Given that this intake system is meticulously hand-laid and crafted from high-temperature motorsports-grade carbon fiber, it is expected to exhibit minor imperfections in the carbon weave and finish. It’s important to note that these imperfections are inherent to the manufacturing process and differ from the conventional high-gloss wet carbon pieces that undergo a clear coat application as a post-process. As each pipe is individually handmade, no two will possess identical characteristics or appearances.
  • This intake is designed to be compatible with both stock turbos and upgrades featuring a 2-bolt compressor cover/inlet configuration.


  • While AMS believes this product is either CARB EO exemption applicable, or complies with the EPA’s Anti-Tampering Policy, they have not completed the required testing and administrative process at this time. This product is not available to purchase for emissions-controlled vehicles located within the state of California, or available to ship to California addresses, without a completed AMS Race Waiver form. International users outside of the United States should act in accordance with their local laws and regulations.

Items that are in stock in the US, either at Bulletproof’s warehouse or at a supplier’s warehouse, are generally delivered within 7-10 days. Special order items from overseas take considerably longer. As a courtesy Bulletproof offers delivery estimates to our customers which take into consideration manufacturer availability and shipping schedule. These estimates represent our best guess based on previous orders from the manufacturer and do not in any way imply a guaranteed delivery window. Many manufacturers work in a “just in time” inventory system and often take 2-20+ weeks to produce an item once an order is submitted. All deliverable items are then sent to our Japanese warehouse. Bulletproof ships a minimum of one full ocean freight container every month from Japan, oftentimes more than one a month. Ocean freight takes an average of 4 weeks. Typically it breaks down to one week in Japan for paperwork and customs, two weeks by boat and one week in US customs/clearance. Due to the wide number of variables between manufacturer and shipping schedules, delivery estimates are simply just that – estimates. We attempt to estimate conservatively and we usually deliver faster than our estimates suggest. It is not Bulletproof’s policy to guarantee delivery time of any special order item, this is impossible for us to do. By ordering you acknowledge that there is no required delivery ETA and an order may not be canceled or altered due to manufacturing or shipping delays, all ETA’s are provided as a best guess only. Please review the full Terms & Conditions.
