Choose Correct Performance Turbo

by Digital Mayne Media

The Garrett® Boost Adviser allows anyone to perform a turbo match quickly and easily by entering a few key parameters.

STEP 1– Complete the Boost Adviser questions.

  • Expected crank horsepower
  • Engine displacement
  • Valves per cylinder
  • Fuel type used
  • Intercooler to be used
  • Altitude above sea level
  • Mid-range engine RPM
  • Peak Power RPM

Garrett does the math and sort the turbochargers to only those turbos that most closely meet your needs. It also guides you to the nearest Official Garrett Performance Distributor who you can contact to refine your selection.

STEP 2 – Talk to the Performance distributer who will then ask further questions like use of the vehicle, if you currently have a turbocharger fitted and as to what boost and back pressure readings along with turbine speeds, if you have them, and lastly your budget for the project.

From this information they will be able to determine the final selection of turbo, turbine housing and all configurations of inlets and outlets to suit your vehicle. This may even include going to a reverse rotation turbo due to application and fitment to maximise the turbocharger by shortening the pipework required from the compressor outlet to the inlet manifold.

STEP 3 – Your Official Garrett Performance Distributor will also be able to help you with any extra fittings and parts required to have a hassle-free installation and best performing Garrett turbocharging system.

The best part – the Garrett® Boost Adviser is free, and compatible with mobile and desktop devices from their website garrettmotion.com or download the Garrett® Connect app form the Apple or Google app stores.

The maximum power stated for each turbocharger has been calculated based strictly on choke flow of the compressor map (total turbo capability), which represents the potential flywheel power. Performance results of this product are highly dependent upon your vehicle’s modifications and tuning/calibration. Please consult with your local distributor before making a purchase.
