In Topic: help with compressor maps for the Gen II Gtx2860r & Gtx2867r

What I noticed is that v2 looks to have worse efficiency overall, and especially at higher boost levels - 2.5 pressure ratio and above, which is >20psi give or take. The new maps also show a smidge of extra flow at the very far edges of the map, but it's unclear if that will translate into real life or if it just looks good.

Therefore I'm sort of skeptical they'll make any extra power, if anything I'm worried they'll be worse than v1, in particular for 2L turbo engines on E85 and high boost. Suspect they're aimed at turbo-converted V8s on lower boost - mind that Garrett is also releasing reverse rotation variants for symmetrical twin turbo setups.

I forgot to also mention reverse rotation as well on the gen 2. More aimed at v engines to allow mirror image engine bays I guess.

Agreed. Unfortunately these seem to be designed for bigger engines running lower boost. One look at the compressor map and you can see that the efficiency above 20psi is absolute balls. And actually the efficiency in general is sacrificed to an extent for meagre gains in flow at the top-end - so intake temps will be a tad warmer as well than the first-gen GTX.

Apart from good pads two of the best things I did to improve braking durability on the track was remove backing plates and install air ducting guides, brought my braking temperatures down significantly....

I thought backing plates were good for thermals and kept fluid temps down?

For a track car removing em wouldnt matter too much but for daily you get sick of going SQUEEEEEEEE every time u stop
