Switzer Performance introduces 900 hp Nissan GT-R E900

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 27, 2010

Another Nissan GT-R tuning package has arrived from Switzer Performance dubbed the Switzer GT-R E900. Instead of petrol, this car uses ethanol, allowing the engineers to improve performance to an awesome 900 hp. The Switzer GT-R E900 represents a huge upgrade over the GT-R P800, which utilized petrol to deliver 800 hp.

Switzer equipped the GT-R with a new custom transmission built by New Zealand outfit Dodson Motorsports. Company founder Tym Switzer said that he is uncertain about the GT-R's transmission being able to deliver 900 hp but that the new box has a bigger clutch area to ensure "smooth sailing" at all speeds.

This made the company decide to use the easily available E85, rather than racing fuel. Switzer aimed to create a race-gas package that didn't force the customer to be stuck to a "fuel drum in his garage," but the tuning firm also aimed to "turn up the boost" as well.

The use of E85 is actually fairly common in Ohio where Switzer's headquarters is located because a huge part of this region is filled with cornfields.

The drawbacks of using E85 include having to revise the fuel system and increase the size of the injectors. But these disadvantages fail to overshadow the fact that the E85 is a fuel that enabled the company to boost the car to produce more than 900hp.

The specific performance figures were not revealed but Switzer did claim that the Switzer GT-R E900 can run from 60 to 130 mph in less than six seconds. The upgrade package is now available but the pricing has yet to be disclosed.
