Why do I need an Alpha Performance cold air intake for my GTR?
The Alpha performance R35 GT-R Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake was designed to draw a higher volume of cool air into the stock turbochargers while improving the metering capability of the factory Mass Airflow (MAF) sensors. With this intake installed, bulky air filter boxes are replaced with high flow dry media filters and carbon fiber tubing. This eliminates clutter within the engine bay while drawing cooler air from outside. Increasing the cross sectional area of the tubing allows the factory MAF sensors to accurately meter air flow up to and over 1000HP! A vast improvement over the stock intake system
What to expect with Alpha Performance GTR cold air intake
The OEM manufacturer spends a lot of time reducing turbo noise at the expense of horsepower. By allowing the turbos to ingest all the cold air they need, the Alpha Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake boosts power significantly. In addition, it allows you to hear the turbos spool up while bypassing valve venting, something we can all appreciate! Some manufacturers offer a 2.5″ intake which will still give you a boost over stock, but we recommend going straight to 3″. This will ensure you do not have to upgrade down the road, because let’s be honest – You’re gonna want to go faster, and you’ll probably buy the ATR1k turbo kit at some point. Plan ahead and buy once!
What else will I need to install with the Alpha Performance GTR cold air intake?
Upon modifying the air induction system you will ABSOLUTELY need to re tune the vehicle. If you are not already running aftermarket tuning software, you WILL need to look into installing one – We recommend Ecutek, contact us for more information on in house installation and setup. Running these intakes without a tuning adjustment can potentially be catastrophic, please contact us ahead of time if you are unsure of your particular requirements

*Because this intake system is hand-laid and made from a motorsports grade high temp carbon fiber, small imperfections in the carbon weave and finish will be present. Again, these are not the typical high gloss wet carbon pieces with clear coat applied as a post process. With each pipe being handmade, no two will show exactly alike.
