Although I was very happy with the Blouch Dominator 1.5xtr turbo I had installed previously, I was ready to make a long-term decision and switch to a rotated turbo setup. This would mean selling my current exhaust and intake setup and getting something new.
I decided that the new GTX series of Garret dual ball-bearing turbos was something that would be perfect. I went with the popular .82 A/R turbine housing. It still has great spool up and street manners, yet has a LOT more potential than even a 3.0xtr turbo. I don’t plan on going crazy with it, but I do think I’ll be pushing more power, while being a bit easier on the engine. I’d rather run less timing and less boost and still hit 400whp like I did before. Now I can get close to 450whp without having to really strain the motor or turbo.
Here is a 360* panoramic view of the turbo!
