BB Turbo

What companies are making BB replacement turbos other than TN and Garrett?
How do they stack up to handling boost pressures?
Will they last awhile?

Re: BB Turbo

You just named both companies offering a BB drop in, and one of those is just now starting initial offerings.

The Garrett unit is tough as nails. Most BB units are. Mine has probably 4 or 5 years on it and it has been treated rough. 40-50lbs of boost all the time for the past year or so. With exhaust gas temps deep into the 1700's everytime I went WOT it was not babied. B-codes for about 2 years now.

Time will tell how the TN unit holds up, but I'm sure it will more than likely be fine as well.

Re: BB Turbo

no, the h2e is not a bb and neither is the big bad wolf. they are both thrust bearing.
as charles said, garrett and tn make the drop in bbs with the tn being released soon hopefully.

Re: BB Turbo

I think the ATS BB was the early version of what is now the Garrett?
