Switzerland Claim it to come up with a performance of 16,650 U.S. dollars compression can pack more than 700 HP out of gas turbine Nissan receptor without sacrificing reliability or driveablity. How'd they do it?

"We check the pressure drops, temperature changes, everything. After replacing the stock turbocharger engine with custom application-specific units and our own unique monster tundish, we gradually improve the allocation of check all the data again and again . Finally, we end up beyond the limits of the standard ECU calibration and hardware, so we set up the necessary components and data collection begin again. "

The result is 626 people, Hewlett-Packard and 583 pounds feet of torque at all four wheels - 700 more than HP at the crank. These figures are to achieve normal use 93 octane gasoline and natural gas and Switzerland to amend the claim does not put "undue pressure on the periodontal ligament of power.

Press Release:

Oberlin, OH - 05MAR2009 - Switzer Debuts P700 PKG for Nissan GTR

Comparisons between Porsche's turbocharged 997 and Nissan's newest GTR have kept the automotive press pretty busy in recent months – with the general consensus being that the GTR stacks up against Stuttgart's performance icon pretty well, thank you very much. Now, however – a year after the GTR's debut – the first tuner GTRs are starting to reach customers ... which seems to beg the question: how do these tuned GTRs stack up against tuned Porsches?

Back in January, the thousand horsepower SLEDGEHAMMER 997 introduced the world to Tym Switzer and his Oberlin, Ohio-based tuning firm. With more than 15 years' experience tuning high-performance cars from Europe and Japan, Switzer is uniquely qualified to answer that question. "Compared to the Porsches, Nissan's 'Godzilla' is a different animal altogether. As an all-weather, four-passenger supercar, the GTR seems like it could appeal to the same kind of audience as the 997, but the GTR is much more of a 'digital' type of experience. It's really amazing how close these cars are, in terms of ultimate performance."

Switzer would know: for the last few months, Switzer has been carefully studying the GTR, developing a series of sensible, high-performance bolt-ons aimed at producing a streetable GTR performance package that didn't force GTR owners to sacrifice reliability or drivability.

Called the P700, Switzer's new package promises more than 700 bulletproof crank horsepower on 93 octane pump gas. "I was always impressed with Nissan's application of certain technologies. One thing I was not impressed with was the amount of 'fluff' parts I was seeing being distributed for the cars or the 'banzai' sort of crank-the-boost with 100+ octane racing fuel antics I was seeing in the aftermarket. I knew that it was important to take a look at what the car was reliably capable of, and what was really going on within the platform."

Switzer's first step was extensive data-logging and analysis. "We checked for pressure drops, temperature variations, everything. After replacing the stock turbos with application-specific custom units and our own unique MONSTER intercooler package, we slowly dialed up the boost, checking all the data again and again. Eventually, we ended up going beyond the limits of the standard ECU calibrations and hardware, so we built the necessary components and the data-gathering started again.

With more than 626 awhp and 583 lb-ft of awtq on tap, the Switzer P700 GTR is certainly set to deliver a driving experience that is many steps above Nissan's standard "Godzilla" GTR, without putting unnecessary stress on the GTR's driveline.

MSRP for Switzer's P700 GTR performance package is 16650 USD. Contact your Switzer Performance dealer for more information and compatibility with your current aftermarket hardware.
