Seems like all the talk goes to the GT2860RS but wouldn't the smaller GT2560R still be a good option for a GQ?

It's for my daily driver, lots of city and decent offroad. I don't pull trailers, don't drive like I stole it... It will have water/meth injection and I'm also considering mounting my W2A once turbo is worked out plus 3" exhaust.

Lastly, it runs on veggie oil but that shouldn't have any impact...

Any thoughts?

Thx!
Mr. D

Hi Bushscrubber,

I just checked out that turbo matching calculator. It's recommended I go with a Garrett GT 25 .63 turbine with a 290hp rating. 229 brake horsepower equalling 168 kw. Not bad at all for $1250! Or cheaper if you can find a Nissan SR20DET engine as it's OEM for that particular engine :D

Not a GT2560R no no no

Get the GT28; Inconel N-111 turbine and Ni-Res rear housing for more resistance to heat.

I was looking at the GT2560R for my 2.8 but did a bit of research into it and got a GT28.

Hey benno,

So, what's wrong with the GT2560R, simply too small? Has anyone tried it on a 4.2?
Yep, waaay to small. Tops out about 30lb/min, you'd want min 40lb for a TD42.

Intercool it, 15/16psi on a GT2871R (743347-4 with a .64 rear ), wind the fuel screw on your 'little' GQ pump to max :driving:

the latest Garrett numbering is found here:
TurboByGarrett.com - Turbochargers

Only two GT2560Rs, poor diddums, atleast you got the 'more than one' part right...... if nothing else.

Interesting when you type 705339-0002 into google and you get such pages as this:
Garrett GT2876R (aka GT25/40R) Ball Bearing Turbo : atpturbo.com go down the bottom

Wonder what number a GT2876R can also be run by......

Turbomaster identifies 705339-0002 as a GT2876R, hminiracing does too and so does just about everyone else.

See here for turbomaster's coding of the 446179-0018, again a GT2876R
Ball bearing CHRA turbos GT Series - Garrett Racing turbochargers - Applications - TurboMaster

You made the mistake by assuming a GT25/40 was a GT2560R, hehehe, under the new numbering system is a GT2876R.

Hey guys,

Thanks for the info although all those numbers and linked got a bit confusing! (Benno, Bushscrapper wrote 705330-0002, not 705339-0002 and when you google that number it seems to link to a GT2560R with 44lbs BUT the other number "446179-0018" does link to both a 2560 and 2876...)

Time to read some more bit please keep your posts coming!

Cheers
Mr. D

705330-0002 - Ball Bearing Turbos - Applications - TurboMaster

705330-0002 is the complete turbo code, 446179-0018 is the CHRA, it is a GT2876R not a GT25.

All these codes (last number 1-9 and then the hypenated) are GT2876Rs, any info other than this is out of date, the change to the new numbering system was made because the old way was too confusing.
Please refer to the Garrett link above for up to date info.

Good to get this clarified, thx

I was advised that the GT2871R might be pushing the limits with my stock GQ pump. Suggested to take a look at either the GT2860R or the TD05H-16G6 (which is way cheaper!)

That's as far as I've gone for now. Load already written on the 2860, still learning on the TD05...

Thanks,
Mr. D

bumping up an old thread as I have an option to buy a near new GT2560R (.64 AR) for $400 instead of $1,100 for a GT2860RS.

I read it gives good grunt in the 12-15psi range which is what I'm looking for.

Not looking to go past 15psi so the GT2860RS would be money thrown away. (GT2560 $400 vs GT2860 $1,100)

Yup - GT2860RS :) However if you are not looking for high boost, the GT2560R with a .60 / .64 configuration. The 2860RS is efficient to just over 20psi whereas the 2560 is around 14-16psi.

Lots of recent threads on here extolling the virtues of the TD05s - they seem to be very durable. I believe the DTS kits use those.

You might also want to check in on some of the local JDM Skyline enthusiasts (there should be a good number in BC). They may have some new or near near GT2860RSs at decent prices. The turboglide manifold has the t25/28 flange pattern.

I've got the DSR manifold coming in which has a T3 flange, so I'll be using an adapter for my GT2860RS

The GT2560R works nicely on the SD33T

The differences in the 2560 to the 2860 is the trim of the rear wheel and inducer on the comp wheel is like .8mm smaller.
And it has bolt on intake/compressor outlets making it harder to install.
Its turbine flow is only 15lb/m, the 28/60 has a turbine flow of about 21lb/min with its wheel.

Basically it will create to much backpressure pre turbo. Will spool up extremely fast, but egt's will always be hot.
Also do yourself a favour and avoid the 2871 & 2876 like the plague. They are possibly the worst turbo you could ever put on a td42.
