Garrett Dual Ball Bearing Turbochargers 

The journal bearing has long been the workhorse of the turbocharger. However, in the 1990's, Garrett engineers developed a radically new and extremely efficient turbocharger. With wheel and bearing advances that provide crisp and strong throttle response up to 15% faster than traditional bearings, a Garrett turbo will accelerate your vehicle more quickly than ever. 

The patented dual ball bearing design also requires less oil to provide adequate lubrication. This in turn lowers oil volume, chance for leakage, and most importantly makes the bearings more tolerant to marginal lube conditions and diminishes the possibility of turbocharger failure on engine shut down.

Garrett dual ball bearing design gives better damping & control over shaft motion improving reliability for both everyday and extreme driving conditions. The opposed angular contact bearing cartridge eliminates the need for the thrust bearing, commonly the weak link in the turbo bearing system. The bearing system in the GT turbocharger allows for improved shaft stability and less drag throughout the speed range. 

While T-Series turbos typically contain 54 components, GT turbos have an average of only 29. The 45% decrease in parts diminishes the opportunity for failure and results in smoother operation across the board.
