Garrett has been a leading manufacturer of turbochargers, intercoolers and accessories for over 80 years since 1936. It was started by Cliff Garrett in Los Angeles, California. The company also manufactured turboprops, turbine engines that power an aircraft propeller. Garrett was known by various names in the past including AiResearch and AlliedSignal. In 1968, Garrett AiResearch and Signal Oil & Gas merged to form Signal Companies. Later, in 1985, Signal Companies integrated with Allied Corporation. The merged company was known by the name, AlliedSignal. AlliedSignal purchased Honeywell in 1999. Honeywell is currently recognized as an American multinational conglomerate firm that offers a range of commercial and consumer products, engineering services, and aerospace systems.
With over 6,000 employees in its facilities, Garrett manufactures over 30,000 turbochargers in a day. Garrett's turbochargers are featured in various makes including Audi, BMW, Fiat, Chrysler, Ford, Saab, Renault and Volkswagen. The brand sponsors turbos for popular racing events including the CART, World Rally, American Le Mans and 24 Hours of Le Mans.
A turbocharger substantially increase the horsepower generated by an engine. Turbos were earlier manufactured to be fitted in high-performance racing vehicles. However, they have now become a part of mainstream vehicles, as well. Garrett's line of turbos is built with experimental technologies and designs. Garret was also a pioneer in the release of AVNT turbos that were fitted in Powerstroke and Duramax Engines. The company's turbos have served as the basis for many of the highly-advanced designs used for building turbochargers today. Garrett's research and development team is persistently working to bring more innovative technologies into the turbo market.
The brand's turbos undergo a thorough testing for endurance and reliability. Various aspects of the turbochargers including the on-engine durability, shaft motion, thrust-bearing capacity, rotor inertia and vibration are all tested before Garret gives the green light for its turbos' commercial release. These rigorous testing processes ensures that the company develops turbochargers that are highly efficient and reliable.
The line of turbochargers manufactured by Garrett includes GT0632SZ, GT1241, GT2554R and GTX2863R. A range of performance kits are available for engines including the GM Duramax (2001 – 2004), Duramax (04.5-10) and Power Stroke (2003). In addition to manufacturing turbos, the brand also produces intercoolers including air-to-air and air-to-water intercoolers. Intercoolers are used to reduce the temperature of the compressed air traveling from the turbo to the engine. Lowering the temperature of the compressed air increases its density, thereby improving the combustion. The intercoolers are fixed between the turbos and the engine. Garett's intercoolers are made of high-strength brazen aluminum alloys. Its intercoolers incorporate a superior design for their fins and tubes. The company offers a variety of accessories that consists of adjustable actuator brackets, boost gauges and speed sensor kits. The speed sensor kits monitor the speed of the turbo's shaft. These kits can be used with all turbochargers.
