AMS Performance Intercoolers for RZ34 Nissan Z

Through meticulous engineering, the AMS Performance Nissan Z Intercoolers deliver unparalleled heat transfer efficiency, thanks to their exceptional design, premium materials, and meticulous construction. The AMS Performance team went above and beyond by not only increasing the core size but also incorporating a groundbreaking counter-flow core design that sets them apart from other options in the market. This innovative design allows for optimal thermal transfer that surpasses the capabilities of conventional cross-flow cores. With a remarkable 70.4% increase in core size compared to the factory intercoolers, combined with precision CNC billet aluminum end tanks, enlarged air inlets, outlets, and coolant ports, the AMS Performance Nissan Z Intercoolers revolutionize heat management for the VR30DDTT engine.

Cross-Flow Design for Improved Efficiency

  • Recognizing the limitations of the factory intercooler system on the VR30DDTT engine, AMS Performance embarked on a mission to enhance its cooling capabilities. Understanding the growing demand for increased power levels in the Nissan Z platform, their AMS SNAILWORKS© Engineering Team took a proactive approach by designing the AMS Heat Exchanger to efficiently dissipate excess heat from the system. This forward-thinking mindset drove them to push the boundaries and develop innovative solutions that would elevate the performance of the Nissan Z to new heights.
  • The AMS Performance Nissan Z Intercoolers represent a complete reimagining of the design principles for VR30DDTT intercoolers. While most aftermarket air-to-water intercoolers utilize a traditional cross-flow configuration, AMS Performance engineers recognized the potential for enhanced thermal efficiency by implementing a counter-flow system. This innovative approach strategically pairs the coolest water with the coolest air within the core, optimizing thermal transfer. Through meticulous engineering, the AMS Performance Nissan Z VR30 Intercoolers are designed to deliver exceptional heat dissipation capabilities for maximum performance.

Engineered to Be the Best

  • As an engineering-focused company, AMS Performance has established a reputation spanning over two decades as a leading manufacturer of motorsports aftermarket components. Their commitment to creating the highest performing parts sets them apart in the industry, as they continually strive for excellence rather than settling for mediocrity. This dedication to exceptional design allows them to incorporate features that are often absent in other kits on the market. For instance, their intercooler kits feature CAD-designed billet 6061 T6 aluminum end tanks, not only improving fitment but also enhancing aesthetics. Additionally, their kits are equipped with large CNC-machined integrated barb fittings and high-quality coolant hoses, ensuring optimal functionality. Going beyond just aesthetics, AMS has designed a line kit with 33% larger feed lines and 20% larger return lines compared to OEM. While other manufacturers may use subpar fittings and low-grade rubber hoses, the AMS Snailworks© Engineering Team has meticulously selected the highest quality materials, guaranteeing years of trouble-free operation.
  • With over two decades of extensive research and development in the realm of forced induction, AMS Performance has solidified its position as a dominant force in the automotive aftermarket. Their exceptional performance systems have garnered numerous awards and set the benchmark for others to follow.

Size Matters

  • To create the AMS Performance Nissan Z Intercoolers, a solid foundation was established with the use of large, high-quality counter-flow cores commonly found in motorsport applications. These specially selected cores offer exceptional efficiency and are significantly larger, allowing for rapid heat dissipation and maximum cooling performance. With their larger size, enhanced thermal transfer capabilities, and improved coolant flow, these intercoolers effectively reduce intake air temperatures (IAT) for your 3.0L VR30 twin turbocharged engine, resulting in increased power output.
  • By significantly enlarging the core volume and optimizing the thermal transfer surface area, the AMS Performance VR30 Intercooler provides a remarkable boost in cooling efficiency. Compared to the OEM intercooler, the AMS Performance VR30 Intercooler cores are an impressive 70.4% larger, offering enhanced heat transfer capacity. This increased thermal efficiency benefits the entire intercooler system, allowing for improved heat dissipation. Whether you reside in a hot climate, engage in drag racing, or perform high-speed runs on airstrips, the AMS Performance Nissan Z Intercoolers will effectively lower your intake temperatures and ensure optimal power output regardless of the conditions.

Better Data Through Proper Engineering Design

  • The Temperature Manifold Absolute Pressure (TMAP) sensor plays a crucial role in the operation of the VR30DDTT engine, as it provides vital information to the ECU’s compensation tables. However, the placement of this sensor on OEM and certain aftermarket intercoolers isolates it in an air pocket within the intercooler end tank. As a result, temperature readings are significantly delayed, leading to a delay in the implementation of important temperature-related calibration strategies. To overcome this limitation, the AMS SNAILWORKS© Engineering Team at AMS Performance has optimized the sensor location to ensure more responsive and accurate temperature data. By utilizing the AMS Performance Nissan Z VR30 Intercoolers, you can provide your tuner with precise air temperature readings, enabling them to finely calibrate air temperature-related safety trims and corrections. This optimization optimizes power output and enhances safety under any driving condition.

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.

We do pricing a little differently on our JDM brands and we believe in making things simple and clear. No hidden fees or surcharges. Every price you see includes the shipping cost to our office in Los Angeles, California and all the associated taxes/duties/fees for bringing the products into the US. The only shipping you ever pay is from our facility in the US to your location. Be wary of resellers that don’t include the cost of international shipping in their pricing on JDM parts. While we believe we’ll always have the lowest all-in price on JDM products, we offer a price match guarantee for all authentic parts purchased from authorized dealers as well. For many international customers, it’s much more affordable to ship from the USA than from Japan directly, as the air freight and ocean freight costs are typically much less. However, for customers looking to ship directly from Japan outside of North America, or domestically in Japan, we can provide pricing specifically for that scenario. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any pricing questions or concerns. Please email us at [email protected] with any inquiries.
