The Switzer Performance P800 is a potent vehicle already but what happens when you take a potent 800hp on pump gas monster and tune it for some high octane race gas? A fire breathing Godzilla incarnate basically.

Switzer have now shipped their first R850 package equipped Nissan GT-R (to Russia!). The package makes about 800hp at the engine (based on 15% drivetrain loss) and 820 lb/ft of torque.

The package comes with tunes for race and pump gas so you’ll actually find the car remains eminently streetable. It also features a large dual core radiator with revised thermostat, revised “MONSTER” intercoolers and the Switzer cooling package. The package comes in at the $20,990 mark all said and done.

A two part post today regarding AMS’s exploits in the Nissan GT-R scene. First up they’ve unveiled renderings of their upcoming intercooler for the Nissan GT-R.

In other AMS news the guys have been back out at the drag strip to try and beat their own record for a Nissan GT-R on pump gas. Thanks to a set of loaner MT drag radials courtesy of Chuck “NAGTROC” H, with no other changes, they’ve dropped their own world fastest GT-R on pump gas ET down to 10.53 @ 133.68 mph! Congrats!

Video to come shortly!
