Default My new friend Mr Garrett

Project single turbo round two is finally underway, my new GT42R turbo arrived yesterday. I thought I'd share some pics of what it looks like and it's big

The engine is on a stand ready to go in and the fabricator will be pulling everything together. The car should come together very quickly now

The GT42R is a 1.15 AR housing with a dual ball bearing 74mm impeller. The whole idea with the ball bearings and aerodynamic advantage of the turbo housing is to be able to get high flow with a smaller impeller and be more efficient than a larger turbo. It will support up to 1,700+ FWHP and easily outflow a T80, I don't have the exact CFM but I will post that up when I get it later today. With my motor, PTE and Garrett tell me it will spool and reach full boost between 2600 and 3000 rpm and carry that boost well beyond the 6400 rpm redline the motor will initially be set at, with no drop off in curve. I'm looking forward to that.

You can't see the plumbimg won't be able to see the plumbing until next week when it's out of the car. The exhaust is being fabricated on a dummy motor that is in the car and will come out when the new motor goes in. I'll mount the new kit on the engine stand and take pics when that part is finished.

The kit is being custom fabricated by ARE as was the new motor

Nice. When do you expect the car to be first fired up? What injectors will you be using?

I'll be using Siemens high impedence 57lb/hr injectors. The goal is to maximise power using the stock PCM without add on electronics. I am using the new Racetronix dual intank pump with AFPR, it's a new plug and play system

I am aiming to fire it up a week from Friday.

what size is your down pipe going to be?
full boost at 2600-3000rpm and supports 1700fwhp thats amazing.
can you PM me the price of what you paid please.

also is this going to be a street/track car or only track car?

A GT42 isn't going to support 1700 flywheel horsepower though.

Up to 1,700, I doubt many if anyone would get there and I know I'm not going to be there with my boost levels. When the car gets into boost and how it holds it is whats important

The car is a street car predominately with track use, and will stay that way. smokinHawk, Pm is on it's way, please refrain from fainting

I thought the 1700 number was a bit high. I thought that it was in the 1100-1200 range.

sweet im eager to see the results of your car.
im still debating to do a single or twin for project #2, spool time is important for me. Im leaning towards twins though as i figure i can get 2 smaller downpipes routed to the back compared to one big one.

how many cubes is your engine going to be?

I almost forgot, the new turbo has both oil and water lines for cooling and to reduce coking. I just thought that was pretty cool

Hey Paul, if you're ever down in the Phoenix area again give me a heads up, we can hook up again if you want!

Hey Dug,

Funny you mention that, I will probably be down there before October and would like to see you again. Funny how our cars always take similar routes

Sorry David, I didn't mean that, really

It would be a very difficult comparison anyways since our motor are also quite different. However our displacement is not the big a difference

Trust me, I am still more than impressed with your setup and the way it runs. I'm trying to stick with AC and air to air intercooling, I'm sure I could make even more power with an alchy system but I don't want to go down that path for a long time . I hope I can get close to where you are
