60.1mm upgrade to Silver Surfer -60lbs/min
Similar Characteristics to GTX3576R
Unit shown in photo has a polished compressor cover as a paid option
The Predator is back after 2 years of redevelopment! This is the next step above the ever-popular Silver Surfer in the GT30R to GT35R Garrett mid-framed T3 footprint as a less expensive alternative to the GTX3576R in the way of purpose, use and response. At approximately 60lbs/min, The Predator gives 1.8-2.4 litre 4-cylinder and 2.5 litre-3.7 litre 6-cylinder engine applications the ability to combine the responsiveness needed in the mid-rpm range like the Surfer with additional upper rpm range to reach levels of over 600whp without the possibility of over-surge issues after 28psi of boost pressure, due to its enhanced compressor wheel profile, and well-matched turbine exhaust wheel and ported turbine housing in a T31 footprint
With its T6 -7075 forged aluminum composition, The Predator has unsurpassed durability to prevent compressor wheel flex that is a typical issue with other “billet” aluminum wheels that are of a lower strength composition. As with all of the STC Forged aluminum series, this turbo gives the reliability, repeatability, and rebuildability that is expected from Genuine Garrett Products
This unit has a standard Journal Bearing T31 2.5″ turbine housing configuration, which can easily replace the standard T3/T4 Garrett-based turbocharger, and is available in T3 configuration only. (T3 V-band is only available using our 2.5″ 4-bolt to 3″ v-band conversion flange )
The use of 3/8th NPT water fittings for the Journal Bearing version is optional, but highly recommended for those using this turbocharger for “daily driving” duties in which oil temperatures and pressures are put to the test.
The Ball-bearing version is optional for an additional charge, and requires the use of a restrictor (.030″) and water fittings. *
Please see the “Special Notes” tab to know which fittings are needed for the Journal Bearing & Ball-Bearing cartridges
This particular turbocharger is designed best for engine applications that generally plan to run efficiency ranges from 16psi-30psi that plan to run from 400whp-600whp in the standard T04E compressor cover.
