Switzer Performance tunes Nissan GT-R to 800 HP and 700 lb-ft of torque | Rpmgo.com

The Nissan GT-R is probably one of the most impressive sportscars on the market, developing 480 HP and 430 lb-ft of torque from its 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6 engine. But what do you do when this power output isn’t enough?

One guy took his GT-R to the team at Switzer Performance, with just one goal in mind: to increase the power to weight ratio. Always willing to help, the engineers at Switzer went to work, stripping out all the unnecessary weight, while implementing a plethora of upgrades, like new intercoolers, tweaked turbochargers or a new exhaust system.

The end result? The Nissan GT-R P800, developing a whopping 800 HP and 700 lb-ft, all while weight 200 pounds less than the average GT-R. Needless to say, we think the Godzilla moniker is more than justified for this model.
