Default 2010 Porsche 997 Turbo P800 Tiptronic By Switzer

Ohio-based tuner Switzer Performance has unveiled a new tuning package for the Porsche 997 Turbo. The tuner worked on reprogramming the Porscheís transmission control unit (TCU) software to increase the torque limits, but they needed more than that if they wanted to obtain a total of 700 HP.

Switzer disassembled, upgraded, and rebuilt the Tiptronic transmission to meet customer demands for higher hp projects. The first builds produced transmissions that were stronger and sharper than the factory unit, but not strong enough to contain Tymís hard-hitting P800. So the tuner kept on working. They added more clutches to eliminate slippage, additional friction surfaces to ensure more efficient power delivery, a modified valve body to improve shift speed, and (last, but not least) another round of transmission programming which enabled the Tiptronic to have a tremendous boost in power and live up to its potential.

The result? The 997 Turbo P800 Tiptronic blasted from 0-60 mph in a scant 2.8 seconds. On standard tires. With standard air pressure. On pump gas. Drivers who participate in 0-100 or 1/8 mile dragstrip challenges may find Switzer P800 Tiptronic to be the perfect weapon. with the PCCB ceramic brakes and the 911ís traditionally brake-friendly weight distribution, 0-100-0 supremacy is all but assured.The price for the package is $7990.

The Porsche Turbo is heralded as the pinnacle example of a daily driven super-car. Every year it is praised for its schizophrenic nature that allows it to gently meander through traffic as softly as a feather in the wind, and then storm around a circuit with the fury of a thousand angry Norse gods. By adding a P800 kit and the Switzer P800 Tiptronic upgrade, the"feather" can go toe-to-toe with a Veyron.

Awesome, the veyron looks helpless. The Skyline vanished into the horizon in a couple of seconds( in the second run).

Personally i'm not one to judge car's performances based on the drivers performance in some random video.

Any hard figures for that skyline - preferably mag-tested?
