Switzer Porsche 997 GT2
No fancy aero packages, no new rims, or ungodly alterations but this Switzer-tuned Porsche 997 GT2 will beat any stock Porsches like a rented mule anytime. Called the “P800″ package, this modification is a full bolt-on turbo cranking the engine’s power up to 800 horses all while using ordinary, 93-octane pump gas. The secret of the package is the Garrett GT30R-based turbochargers, heating huge quantities of air that’s then directed to the Switzer MONSTER intercoolers. The engine is fed by air and fuel by larger injectors with an oversized throttle body. All the hardware is managed by the stock ECU running on DME software calibrations. With all the modifications hidden deep in the engine bay, the car may look stock but it will accelerate it to 62 mph from a standing start in under 3 seconds onward to 132 mph in 10.66 seconds.
