Switzer Nissan GT-R P800 – Click above for high-res image gallery

If you want a Porsche to beat all other Porsches, Switzer Performance is a good place to start. The Ohio-based aftermarket tuner continues to crank out 800-horsepower 911s that would make even 9ff sweat. But what if you don't want to beat a Porsche with your Porsche? What if you want to beat a Porsche with, say... a Nissan GT-R? Not an uncommon pursuit, and Switzer is glad to help there, too.

One GT-R owner turned to the tuning house with a simple mandate: increase the power-to-weight ratio. Switzer answered by reducing the weight while increasing the power at the same time. The P800 package includes new intercoolers, air intakes, turbochargers and exhaust – the latter a ceramic-coated titanium system – plus a new spoiler and sport seats. The result? 200 pounds off the scale and 300 more horsepower, for a total of 800 horses and 700 pound-feet of torque. Yeah, that ought to do the trick. Check out the photos in the gallery below.

      Along with the Turbo, GT-Rs take to mods better than most any car, mostly because they can both put the power to the ground.

      Not many cars, stock or modified have been faster than the Switzer Porsches and Nissans in the Moscow Unlimited drag races.
