A quick update here from Switzer tuning, the Nissan GT-R R1KX “Red Katana” has just ran its best quarter mile in 8.97 seconds at 163 miles per hour. They tested the car at Norwalk, Ohio’s Summit Motorsports Park and this is an unbelievable record for a car that can still be a daily driver. Switzer has proved that the godzilla Nissan GTR is one of the most impressive vehicles of the 21st century.
A few new goodies have been released by Switzer Performance for their Nissan GTR line of tuning kits. This one is specifically called the P600 PKG, and offers a minor boost from the factory 545 HP to now 600 horsepower. The increase comes from new high flow air filters, a SS90 high performance exhaust and ECU software tuning. Even though this power increase is modest, the Nissan GTR still benefits from the kit with a 0 to 62 mph acceleration time of only 2.6 seconds.
The all new Ultimate Street Edition for the Nissan GT-R has been released by Switzer Performance. This package is for the daily driver who wants the power when needed, but still have the smooth feel of a stock GTR. They have tuning programs for the R35 GT-R consisting of 700, 800, 900 and even 1,200 horsepower packages like the R1KX. However, this Ultimate Street Edition offers the best of both worlds. It has 1,000+ horses, yet won’t overheat in traffic, require frequent maintenance, nor need special race gas to run smoothly.
The tuning company from Ohio called Switzer Performance has created a perfect performance kit for the Porsche Panamera. They didn’t add a whole bunch of body modifications, and instead decided to tune the Porsche where it would have the greatest effect. Under the hood you will find a direct-injected V8 with twin turbos and the Switzer P680 hardware. Two new turbos give the Porsche Panamera a better boost response with their billet compressor wheels, while the cooling system have been improved with a new intercooler.
The Ohio based tuning company Switzer Performance has topped their previous records with the Nissan GT-R P900. This modified Nissan GT-R now produces 900hp with an all new transmission to handle the power. Switzer previously released the Nissan GT-R P700 package that boasted around 800 horses, with 700 crank horsepower, but that wasn’t enough. Tim Switzer started off by making this custom Nissan run on E85 ethanol, but to handle these numbers, a new transmission was needed. Transmission failure was the biggest concern of this project, so the tuners hired Dodson Motorsports in New Zealand to develop the stronger transmission. After several months of development between Switzer and Dodson, they received a product that would allow them to push more than 800hp.
The guys from Switzer have taken the Porsche 911 GT2 R911S to a whole new level of performance with their car tuning package. Instead of adding any styling improvements to the Porsche, the tuners have focused all of the attention under the hood. The Porsche 911 GT2 is the fastest road car in Porsche history, but the customers feel they can always get a little more power, so that’s where Switzer comes in. After the tuning upgrades, the 911 GT2 put down 911 horsepower, ironic right, which is 291 hp more than the factory car, and just 89 hp less than the notorious Bugatti Veyron!
Switzer Performance Innovation (SPI), a car tuning company from Ohio, have released details on their P700 package for the highly anticipated Nissan GT-R. With over 15 years experience tuning all different imports from Europe to Japan, Switzer Performance was able to get 700hp out of this GT-R, hence the ‘P700’. SPI is well-known for tuning Porsche’s and recently introduced the 1,000 hp Sledgehammer 997. However, for this project they aimed to maintain a reliable and everyday driver at 93 octane. At stock the new Nissan GT-R is able to produce 480 hp and 434 ft-lbs of torque. So the first major upgrade SPI decided to go with were brand new Garrett GT ball-bearing turbochargers with custom compressor wheels to increase the boost.
