Honeywell Pumps Up the Power in New Garrett Performance Turbos
- Seven popular Garrett by Honeywell performance turbos get horsepower range increases
- New compressor wheel aerodynamics key to adding power to trusted Garrett performance
LAS VEGAS, Oct. 31, 2016 — Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today announced the Nov. 1, 2016, availability of its Garrett GTX Series Gen II Turbochargers featuring updated compressor aerodynamics and additional features resulting in class leading efficiency and horsepower ratings.
The new upgrades enhance a range of turbo sizes, and starts with fully machined wheels using state-of-the art aerodynamic tools and processes derived from Honeywell Aerospace which develops jet engines and produces some of the most efficient wheels in the industry.
In addition to the newly designed aerodynamics, the next generation of GTX turbos comes with a machined speed sensor port (Garrett speed sensor sold separately) to support tuning and data acquisition and save time and money during installation. It also eliminates additional handling and drilling by a third party which could inadvertently damage the turbo or negatively affect its calibrated performance.
“The new lineup of Garrett GTX Gen II turbos is our most significant portfolio refresh in nearly a decade. We are using advanced technology connected under the larger umbrella of our Honeywell Aerospace business to help design and manufacture turbo solutions that have made Honeywell a turbo leader for more than 60 years,” said, Eric Fraysse, Aftermarket vice president and general manager at Honeywell Transportation Systems. “Coupled with the reliability and durability synonymous with the Garrett brand, the increased power range jumps Garrett to the head of the performance enthusiast class.”
Standard features of the Garrett GTX Series Gen II lineup include water-cooled center housing rotating assemblies, ceramic ball bearings for additional responsiveness, new high-flow compressor housings, a fully machined compressor housing inlet, ported shroud, and outlet, and several options for turbine housings to ensure proper installation.
The new GTX Gen II lineup is fully backward compatible and completely interchangeable with first GTX GEN I products and even Garrett’s standard GT product line. In addition to the performance upgrades, the finish of the castings has also been updated to be more uniform reflecting the quality in the product.
