Stage 2 Turbo Project - Garrett GT2554R

Update (01/08): Item sold.

This turbo is now up for sale at RM 4,200, please get in touch with me if you're interested. Only 2 left in the entire Malaysia.

The stage 2 turbo kit is finally coming in to picture with the arrival of the most important component which is the turbo itself.

This little baby here is rated to produce up to 270 HP and is suitable for engines with the displacement from 1.4 liters and above. With a dual ball bearing design, we would expect minimal lag from this turbo even on the small 1NZ-FE engine.

It is quite common for ball bearing turbos to spool up at least 15%-20% faster than similar sized journal bearing turbos while giving better damping and control over shaft motion, providing enhanced reliability for everyday driving.

This GT2554R turbo uses a dual stainless steel ball bearing cartridge and is the smallest ball bearing turbo available from Garrett. With the ball bearing design, we won't need to supply as much oil as needed compared to journal bearing for lubrication of the turbo.

It also shares the same oil and water cooling housing design as my current GT2056 turbo, however the major differences between the both of them would be the bearing design and the power output.

We'll see how well this turbo performs when it goes in.

Stay tuned fellas.

http://www.viosturbo.com/2010/08/gt-auto-stage-1-special-turbo-kit.html

the car is actually using this turbo to make over 200 horse at the wheels on the stock 1nzfe engine and stock automatic transmission.

1nzfe...ok n what about my yellow injection??and should i bing the intercooler infront the car?if i have to change sumthing else plz help me to know because am very interesting with this turbo gt2554R

Chang Chew Soon said...

yellow injection? whats that?

as for the intercooler, the only place you could put is the front actually unless you want to do a scoop on your hood and mount your intercooler on top of your engine.

do you want to just get the turbo alone or you are interested in getting a complete turbo kit? let me know so i can help you.

actually my yaris was already equipped with a turbo TRD kit when i bought it.so i just want to change the turbo,the injection and put the intercooler in front.all i know is i should put a 550cc injection.if necessary, i will use an ultimate e-manage or an AVCR for the electronic box. Don't hesitate to tell me anything or give me other ideas if you think i'm wrong. Thank you.

you might want to check the flange to see whether the GT2554 turbo can fit the current manifold that you're using now....

and the 445cc injectors worked well with the stage 1 special turbo kit from gt auto....that is without converting to a return fuel setup...

might want to reconsider using such big injectors or else the idling might suffer and low end drivability might suffer....

the emanage and avcr are two different things all together, which i think you should have them both if budget allows....
