GT Ballbearing vs EFR Ballbearing catridge

A review comparing EFR and GT ballbearing surfaced up the internet sometime ago showing the picture below claiming the EFR to have a bigger ballbearing cage. The truth is both the GT and the EFR has bigger cages but they start at a diffrent turbocharger frame. The border catridge is actually a GTX3582 which oftenly is compared to a EFR8374 and also the GTX3076 with the EFR7670.

The GT/GTX series is divided to 3 frames while the EFR series is divided to only 2 frames.
GT25/28 Frame1, GT30/35 Frame2 , GT37,40,42 Frame3.
While in the EFR series , all EFR up to EFR6758 shares one frame while anything above it shares a bigger catridge. In comparison the EFR7670 sits in a bigger frame while GTX3076 sits in its seconds frame thus EFR having a bigger cage but also a beefier shaft which also means heavier. No doubt the GT series are proven till at high boost capabilities till today despite it counterparts differences. GT30/35 based turbos are one of the most used turbocharger in the Motorsport industry where some with billet wheels surpass the 800hp range.
