Porsche 911 Turbo gets Switzer 800 hp upgrade
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.
