Just been taking some photos of a couple of my turbos and thought some of you might be interested as its a pretty cool size comparison...

One is a T4 sized turbo rated to approx 550-600bhp, so pretty big, a decent sized single, thats for sure.

The other one, well, is a mite bigger... (if you want a size comparison, the inlet is 6inches in diameter and its a job to pick the turbo up its so damn heavy)








(pls ignore the slight oxidisation on the turbine housing of the bigger one, was left in a damp garage for a while, its still unused as yet)

TBH mate, itd not really be suitable for most lorries as they have huge capacity and low bhp per litre, so they wouldnt have a compressor that big, and would normally have a turbine housing that small!

Its a 1600bhp+ compressor, but the turbine is relativley tiny, and has an a/r ratio of just .86, wheras most big truck turbos have 1.3 a/r more, often much more.

Is thats cracks on the huge turbo compressor housing ?
No. Infact they raised areas.

Its never been run or fitted to an engine.

Its got a plasticy sorta spray coating and they ridges from that as whoever did it obv didnt care about what it looked like.

Haha, awesome, i just been doing some research, lots of research!

Its a Garrett GT60 :eek:

Good for upto 2000bhp it seems :) (tho with the spool friendly .84 housing im sure its not that much, but their minimum rating is 1450bhp, so its obv still good for 1600bhp+)

Best 90 pounds i ever spent :D
