Oberlin, Ohio isn’t the likely site for a company specializing in high-output power upgrades for exotic cars, but the state is home to Switzer Performance Innovations (SPI), a company churning out mega horsepower cars. Started by Tym Switzer several years ago, the tuning firm is now offering an 800 horsepower kit for the already extreme Nissan GT-R supercar.

Commissioned by a customer in New England, Switzer’s P800 package for the Nissan GT-R sees output jumps to 800 horsepower and 700 pound-feet of torque. The kit includes new intercoolers, a high flow intake, and uprated turbochargers.

Switzer also focused on reducing the weight of the relatively portly 3,800 pound Nissan GT-R. This includes the addition of a lightweight titanium exhaust system, a dry-carbon trunk lid, and lightweight sports seats from Bride.

The complete list of weight saving modifications sees almost 200 pounds dropped from the kerb weight of the GT-R, resulting in better acceleration and braking performance.
