DI Unboxing: Garrett GTX5533R Gen II Turbocharger

We recently got our hands on Garrett’s GTX5533R Gen II turbocharger and it’s bad to the bone! This is the same turbo used by guys like Mark Micke, Marty Stinnett, Josh Klugger, Steve Summers and many others. Micke, in case you forgot, used a pair of these units back in March to set both ends of the Radial vs. World record at Donald Long’s now-infamous “Sweet 16” shootout in Valdosta, Georgia, en route to a $101,000 payday.
