Video: Switzer Performance Nissan GT-R


Six hundred twenty-six all-wheel horsepower and five hundred eighty-three all-wheel torques. That’s a healthy amount. It’s also about 200 more horsepower than the world-beating stock Nissan GT-R. Clearly, Tym Switzer doesn’t fully grasp the meaning of the word “enough”. And the world is a better place for it. 

This is a massive improvement over HKS’ GT-570, which we last saw munching a not-so-dry Fuji Speedway. So how did Switzer, normally a Porsche tuner, make such strides with a Datsun? They approached the problem from a different perspective. That shouldn’t surprise you because Switzer is the same guy who created the SLEDGEHAMMER, a 1000 hp Porsche 997 Turbo with only $50,000 in bolt-ons!

For the GT-R, rather than bolt-on exhausts and remapped ECUs like everyone else was doing, Switzer swapped out the stock turbos for Garrett units and added a better intercooler to keep everything nice and cool. He then did a little fine-tuning with Cobb’s latest software. 

The resulting dyno, as seen in the video, explain why the word “enough” is nowhere to be found in the Miriam-Switzer Dictionary.
