Just plain weird issue with the Dart's turbo
Wayne tried to attach the GT40 to the new divided flange we'd been setting up today, only to find that this flange didn't fit either. Finally, after a call to ATP, we found out the truth. And sometimes truth doesn't make sense. Although Garrett's own description of the GT4082 says it has a T4 flange, its turbine flange is really a little different from the standard T4. And what's even stranger, the GT4082 is the only GT40 to have this slightly different flange. The rest of them are standard T4 flanges!
So we're hogging the bolt holes on the turbo out to make it fit the flange that Garrett's own spec sheet says it fits. You'd have thought Garrett would have known better. For a company with their reputation, that's pretty bad.
