What made you choose this particular product?

Garrett GT Series is the name that pioneered turbo technology and boosted drag racing and road racing teams to break hundreds of world records. The GT Series lineup is offered in both journal and ball bearing options, and sizes ranging from GT2052 to GT3582. The cast compressor wheels feature original GT Series aerodynamics and provide maximum durability and longevity. Internally wastegated turbine housing options are available in all GT Series sizes. Turbine kits are offered in open volute and twin scroll, and a variety of A/R and flange configurations. For any performance need, GT Series turbochargers have you covered.


Is this your first time buying from this brand? Did you consider other brands?

Yes, no.


Was it easy to install? Any installation tips that will help others?

lol, the installer charged me out the wazoo to install these.


Once you've had a chance to use the product, did it meet your expectations?

yes


Any additional comments?

A legitimate 650hp is possible on these turbos (with the supporting modifications per application).


These turbos are a gold standard within the Skyline world. My current boost level is very conservative (1.16bar) and the turbos hit boost around 4K RPM and the TQ curve is actually flat from 4,000-7,500 RPM. Many of my friends, with similar set ups, are running just a little more boost and getting much larger TQ numbers. Overall I'm happy with this product and I know that with additional boost and additional set up, we can get to much larger numbers.

Notes

The labor of swapping out both turbos was waaaay higher than what I was quoted and more than I was expecting. I was told by friends this would run anywhere from 6-9 hours and the shop quoted me 12. 18 hours of billing later, the turbos were installed.
