2010 NISSAN GTR BY SWITZER
Nissan GTR feels the need to improve performance and reduce the standard GTR’s 3.800 lb weight. The goal was an ideal track-day car that could get there, run, and still head out for an evening while providing full comfort and amenities.
Then, Switzer Performance Innovation (SPI) has been successfully doing what Nissan GTR need and achieves the final result: An R35 road/track Godzilla weighing in at 3,600 lbs and putting out an insane 800 horsepower.
The following are the steps that carried the Nissan GTR in progress:
- Install the P800 power kit, which adds new intercoolers, intakes, and turbos. This gets the car to 800 horsepower and “almost 700 lb-ft of torque.”
- Put the stoppers on a diet (reducing unsprung mass) by replacing brake components with parts from AP (carbon rotors and brake fluid), new pads, and stainless steel brake lines.
- Improve breathing further with a ceramic-coated titanium exhaust system.
- Cut unnecessary flab with the addition of a carbon trunk lid and new Bride sports buckets. “We chose these seats because of their adjustability. You can be comfortable, still get to the back seat, and it’s not an extreme one-piece seat that’s not comfortable on the highway.”
- Throw in “a fully-adjustable JRZ suspension system” (with adjustable sway bars) for better carving of corners.
- Resolve any air flow issues with an under-body diffuser and an Aeromotions wing.
