Hks Gtrs Vs Garrett Gtrs


Recommended Posts

Basically whats the difference between the two? Other than price...

i know the hks ones are made partly by garrett, but are said to be better.

the garrett now says there is a t3 option that will bolt directly onto an rb manifold and dump. How much would it take to fix up the oil and water lines? And what would that cost me?

Do they bolt on to the dump as well?? I'd check that out. The Garrett ones have a more aggressive trim option if I understand correctly - so you can get more power and more lag if you want :laugh:

I believe you get gaskets and the full kit with the HKS ones..oil and water lines as well.

..Garrett only give you a turbo with a standard actuator.

HKS GT-RS kit gives you everything to fit it perfectly. No other expenses really needed. With the garrett one you would need to do the following:

3 new braided lines with fittings for oil and water

Modify your dump pipe to fit onto the garrett turbo

Gaskets

HKS adjustable actuator (this is not needed, but too compare the two turbos you have to include this as a bonus in the HKS kit)

Maybe change some pipework? Not sure if the compressor housing on the garret one lies up identically to all the the intake pipes

So once you add all of that up, it ends up costing you quite a bit more than first expeceted.
