AMS Performance Race Cooling Kit for R35 Nissan GT-R

The original cooling system of your GT-R is inadequate as it is designed to handle both the engine and transmission cooling requirements. As a result, extended aggressive driving on the street or even brief periods of racing can lead to overheating of crucial engine and transmission components.

Fixing Your GT-R’s Biggest Achilles Heel

  • The factory cooling system of your GT-R is insufficient as it fails to adequately cool both the engine and transmission. Consequently, engaging in prolonged aggressive driving on the streets or even brief periods of racing conditions can lead to overheating of these critical components. This overheating can result in the breakdown of engine and transmission oils, eventually triggering the GT-R to enter limp mode or even shut down entirely. Recognizing this issue, the AMS engineering team dedicated a year to develop, test, and refine the most advanced cooling solution available for your R35 GT-R.

3 Cooling System Upgrades In One Refined Package

  • The Alpha GT-R Cooling System is a comprehensive upgrade for the R35 GT-R’s existing engine cooling system. It includes a high-quality, race-spec radiator, an exceptionally efficient transmission cooler, and an additional in-line engine oil cooler. Unlike some competitors who only upgrade one or two components, AMS Performance understands that all the cooling systems in the GT-R are interconnected. Therefore, by upgrading every aspect of the cooling system, the Alpha GT-R Cooling System offers the most effective and comprehensive solution available. With this advanced cooling package, you can enjoy extended track sessions with increased safety and reliability, ensuring you stay on track for longer periods than ever before.

Alpha Radiator

  • In the Alpha cooling system, the stock radiator is substituted with a larger, all-aluminum radiator manufactured by Griffin. This radiator features a dual pass design, which enhances fluid velocity through the core, resulting in improved heat transfer capabilities. The Alpha radiator is designed to utilize all the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) mounting hardware and includes provisions for mounting the air conditioning (A/C) condenser in its factory location.

Alpha Transmission Cooler

  • A crucial element of the cooling system is the AMS Laminova high-volume liquid-to-liquid transmission cooler. This cooler features a cylindrical design with a heat exchanger that incorporates numerous heat dissipating fins, maximizing the contact area for the transmission fluid. The innovative design provides 20% more cooling efficiency compared to the traditional air-to-oil coolers commonly used by competitors.

Alpha Oil Cooler

  • To guarantee that the oil in your GT-R’s engine maintains optimal lubrication, the Alpha cooling kit tackles the issue of the insufficient factory engine oil cooler. It does so by introducing an additional cooler in series. This new Setrab cooler effectively doubles the frontal area within the system, allowing for increased exposure to cool and dense outside air. As a result, oil temperatures are drastically reduced before the oil returns to the engine, ensuring optimal operating conditions.

Optional Race Cooling Kit

  • AMS Performance offers an optional race cooling kit that includes an external transmission oil cooler and a specially designed molded plastic duct to facilitate the intake of fresh air. This upgrade is particularly beneficial for GT-R owners residing in hot climates like the Middle East or Southern United States, as well as those who frequently engage in extended track sessions with their GT-R.

A Must-Have Upgrade For Modified GT-R Owners

  • No matter the extent of your performance modifications, intensive driving or high temperatures can lead to excessive heat buildup in your GT-R. To ensure optimal operating temperatures, prevent limp mode conditions, and eliminate the risk of engine or transmission failure, the Alpha GT-R Cooling System is an absolute necessity.

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.
