Garrett GTX turbos now at Owens!
Owen Developments - suppliers of the BTCC control turbochargers - is pleased to announce that the next step in the evolution of the turbocharger is here thanks to Garrett! Owen Development's Garrett GTX Turbos feature all new compressor wheels with next generation aerodynamics and improved efficiency to deliver unrivalled performance and reliability.
Thanks to a number of brand new features, these external wastegate Garrett GTX ball bearing turbochargers provide higher flow and greater boost pressure ratios even compared to the world-class Garrett GT Series turbochargers.
The Garrett GTX turbochargers are supplied without a turbine housing, so Owen Developments elects to use a TIAL Sport stainless steel housing to suit. Owen's also CNC machines the standard Garrett GTX cast ported shroud compressor housing to optimise inlet flow.
Key features of the Owen Developments Garrett GTX turbochargers include:-
- Fitments covering a/r ratios from 0.63 to 1.06
- 10%+ flow gain compared to traditional GT compressor wheel designs
- 10%+ higher boost pressure compared to traditional GT compressor wheel designs
- Forged, fully machined billet wheels for optimal performance
- 11 full blade wheel design for improved efficiency and ultra quiet operation
- CNC machined ported compressor shroud for surge avoidance
- Oil and water cooling for optimal thermal management
- TIAL stainless steel turbine housing from Owen Developments
- Garrett dual ball bearing centre cartridge
- Outline interchangeable with current Garrett GT Series turbos
- Garrett OE-quality for unbeatable reliability
About the Garrett GT ball bearing centre housing cartridge:
With wheel and bearing advances that provide crisp and strong throttle response up to 15% faster than traditional bearings, a Garrett ball bearing turbo will accelerate your vehicle more quickly than ever.
The patented dual ball bearing design also requires less oil to provide adequate lubrication. This in turn lowers oil volume and the chances for seal leakage. The lessened need for oil also makes the bearings more tolerant to marginal lube conditions and diminishes the possibility of turbocharger failure on engine shut down.
The Garrett dual ball bearing cartridge gives better damping and control over shaft motion allowing enhanced reliability for both everyday and extreme driving conditions. The opposed angular contact bearing cartridge eliminates the need for the thrust bearing, commonly the weak link in a turbo bearing system.
The bearing system in the Garrett GTX turbocharger allows for improved shaft stability and less drag throughout the speed range.
While Garrett T-series turbos typically contain 54 components, Garrett GT turbos have an average of only 29. This 45% decrease in component use diminishes the opportunity for failure and results in smoother operation.
The example Owen Developments Garrett GTX turbocharger pictured here is a GTX3582R, with an a/r ratio of 0.70 on the compressor side and 0.82 on the turbine. Suitable for engines with power outputs of up to 700 bhp, it carries part number OD-GTX3582R as is priced at £1475.32 excluding VAT.
The Owen's Garrett GTX3582R is available now, along with the full range of exciting new Garrett GTX turbos in a wide variety of specification, directly from Owen Developments.
