Garrett Turbos?

Anyone heard of them?

Are they "big" players for the n54?

Garrett are a huge player in the turbo market full stop.

Very good turbos all round, have used many different variants on japanese performance cars!

They are probably one of the most common oem manufacturers too..

Very popular on the Evo scene (where I came from). The next step for my old car was to buy a Garrett turbo.

I think my Alpina runs a Garrett turbo, no complaints so far.
