After just completing the engineering and testing phase of the new AAM 800hp turbo upgrades for the Nissan GT-R the guys have announced they made 659 hp at the wheels on just 19psi of boost on pump gas! Youch that’s a lot of power. What’s more is that the guys had only just begun to scratch the surface of the potential here and are expecting 700awhp by the time they’re done.

Fitted to the first AAM 800hp Turbo Upgrade Nissan GT-R was the following supporting modifications:

Note that AAM actually opted to go for high-flow catalytic converters instead of a straight through exhaust like many would. Interesting choice and it shows their cat’s design is solid for sure.

Next up from AAM is a competition intercooler setup as the stockers just aren’t cutting it at 700hp and I’m not surprised!

Check the dyno chart below and head over to NAGTROC to see the dyno run videos.

It’s not everyday that a tuner the caliber of Switzer Performance makes an invitation to press to come try out their latest and greatest behemoth but that’s just what they did. On the dyno this beast reels off a solid 707 awhp (527kw) and 603 lb/ft (817 Nm) of torque which is good enough for a 3.35 0-60mph without resorting to the GT-R’s fabled launch control.

Jalopnik were the first to write up their experiences with the P800 on a miserable looking day on a snowy wet track. Good things to be said all round and well written to boot.

Check it out at the link below, video and tonnes more photos in their gallery over on Jalopnik…
