Garrett's GTX Gen2 turbochargers are the next iteration of high performance turbocharger development. The Gen2 features further revised aerodyanmics, an improved ported shroud for great surge resistance, and a full machined speed sensor port for those that demand all the data needed to make power and have a great setup. A billet backplate is also featured for increased strength and durability. Not to mention, Garrett's compressor housing castings look much more refined with a nice cast finish and a clear and defined Garrett logo.

Compared to the stock turbo, there is a little lag, but it more than makes up for it in the broad power band. I push things fairly hard, and I now have traction problems throughout 4th gear. Lousy traction and I still got 60 - 100 in 4.1 sec. Glad I didn't go bigger Would be nice to have an official install direction list. The banjo bolts would have gone on much easier with the turbo off....the ones you could
