Turbo Tech: Log Manifold vs Tubular Manifold

More Great Turbo Tech from www.TurbobyGarrett.com There are two different types of turbocharger manifolds; cast log style (see Figure 3.) and welded tubular style (see Figure 4.). [caption id="attachment_1110" align="aligncenter" width="360" caption="Figure 3. Cast log style turbocharger manifold"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_1107" align="aligncenter" width="360" caption="Figure 4. Welded tubular turbocharger manifold"][/caption]   Manifold design on turbocharged applications is deceptively complex as there many factors to take into account and trade off . General design tips for best overall performance are to: Maximize the radius of the bends that make up the exhaust primaries to maintain pulse energy Make the exhaust primaries equal length...

Turbo Tech - Wheel Trim

borg warner garrett turbochargers IPG Parts precision Technical Articles turbo wheel trim turbobygarrett what do turbo #'s mean

Courtesy of www.TurbobyGarrett.com Getting a little more complex here. Trim is a common term used when talking about or describing turbochargers. For example, you may hear someone say "I have a GT2871R 56 Trim turbocharger". What is 'Trim?' Trim is a term to express the relationship between the inducer* and exducer* of both turbine and compressor wheels. More accurately, it is an area ratio. * The inducer diameter is defined as the diameter where the air enters the wheel, whereas the exducer diameter is defined as the diameter where the air exits the wheel. Based on aerodynamics and air entry...

Garrett Releases New GTX3071R, GTX3076R, and GTX3582R Turbochargers

The release of these three new turbos, the GTX3071R, the GTX3076R and the GTX3582R raises the bar for mid-frame turbo performance. More BOOST and additional FLOW without losing BOOST RESPONSE is result of extensive research and development of a new and more aerodynamic profile of compressor wheels. The GTX3076R can now flow nearly 65 lb/min and the GTX3582R has the potential to do over 750HP in the compact familiar external package of the standard GT turbos we've grown to appreciate. You do not have to change your turbo kit arrangement! While Garrett by Honeywell is currently the industry leader and...
