Switzer P600 PKG Nissan GT-R tuning upgrade with 450kW

Renowned Nissan GT-R tuner Switzer has announced its P600 PKG tuning upgrade package for the 2012 Nissan GT-R. As you’d expect, engine power is given a good kick in the pants.

Starting with the 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 engine, the P600 PKG kit includes a new intake setup with freer flowing air filters, a full high-flow exhaust system, and an engine computer retune.

With just these enhancements alone, power is taken from the factory 404kW rating, to a more serious 450kW output. This enables the GT-R to sprint from 0-100km/h in just 2.6 seconds – down from the factory time of 2.8.

To further distinguish the P600 PKG from the rest, Switzer offers a set of its own Signature series lightweight forged alloy wheels. These are said to improve handling through reduced unsprung mass, while a set of sticky Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres add further adhesion.

If you’ve got a Nissan GT-R and are in need or more power, Switzer offers the package from US$12,990 (approximately AU$12,339).
