HONEYWELL pumps up the power in NEW HONEYWELL GARRETT PERFORMANCE TURBOS
- Seven popular Honeywell Garrett performance turbos get horsepower range increases
- New compressor wheel aerodynamics key to adding power to trusted Honeywell Garrett performance
Honeywell announced the Nov. 1, 2016, the availability of its Honeywell 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 (Honeywell 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 Honeywell 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 Honeywell 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.
