Many Launch Control's ago, "way back" in 2008 we began development of what is now known as the P800 PKG for the GTR.
Launched in the spring of 2009, this year we celebrate the P800's 5th anniversary. The P800 was designed to provide maximum horsepower and torque with the OEM drivetrain untouched, while maintaining reliability and improving driveability without losing any of the GTR's incredible characteristics for handling, throttle response, or functionality. Over the years it has become a benchmark for many and the car to beat for a daily driven pump gas GTR. Below are some of the very early videos of our P800 prototype in testing.

We have modified and prepared this R35 GTR for everyday high performance use and road course duty. Our goal with the project was to make 600awhp on 93 octane pump fuel and provide this in a combination that would not be stressed doing so. This package is capable of quite a bit more hp, however we are going cap it at this power level for longevity and the ability of the car to run consistently lap after lap on a road course while maintaining its performance.

This has been our first opportunity to drive the GTR that we have been preparing over the last few weeks. We have finished our development work and are very pleased with the results. The goal was to create a 700 crank hp, 93 octane pumpgas GTR that could be used for daily use and road course duty. Drivability is now just as it was stock, while the response and power are substantially improved. It is difficult to judge just how quick this car is in the video, but you do get an idea. Enjoy!
From the P700 development came the P800, similar hardware with a few tweaks, more power.
April 1st, 2009:
After completing the road tuning of our P700 and P800 packages, we decided to put this Switzer P800 equipped R35 GTR on the dyno to verify its power level. The car was a bit rich for best-power going from the road to the dyno but we decided not to change the calibration just for the sake of producing the best dyno number. The car put down 707/603 to the rollers on straight 93 octane pump gas and that's more than enough for us as it far and away exceeds our original goals for this project.
From this first dyno pull, to numerous races around the world, we've collected a number of P800 videos and put them together for this video below, and as part of our celebration we have revisited the P800 PKG, made some fine tweaks to it, and are re-releasing it for a limited time with our SS102 exhaust and the Cobb V3 Accessport for $19,990 installed! We'll be posting more about those changes and more at a later date. For now, enjoy.
