Porsche 911 Turbo gets Switzer 800 hp upgrade

2009 Porsche 911 Turbo by Switzer
Run by Tym Switzer, American tuning firm Switzer Performance has introduced their 800 hp P800 package for Porsche’s track-focused GT2 last June, but apparently a number of customers asked if they could get the same power upgrade from the all-wheel-drive 911 Turbo model. So they went ahead and created one.

The Switzer P800 kit for the 997-generation Porsche 911 Turbo offers up 800 hp, all-wheel drive, and 3-second 0-100 kph runs, which is about as much information as they’ve released.

The P800 kit for the GT2 evolved from the SLEDGEHAMMER 911 project car that was built for drag-racing. Switzer’s P800 997 package apes their GT2 package’s use of custom GT30 turbochargers, and the heat generated by the turbocharged boxer-6 is dissipated by Switzer’s own intercoolers. Unlike the GT2, however, the 997TT-based P800 does not require a new intake manifold or upgraded throttle-body.

Switzer’s 800 hp P800 package also includes competition-style exhaust and headers, an upgraded carbon clutch package, electronic boost control and ECU software.

This package is only available through Switzer Performance dealers in the United States.
