How to identify a turbo

Correctly identifying the turbo means you'll get the right replacement first time, saving you time, money and hassle. Look for the label or nameplate on the turbo's outer casing.

Turbo ID is missing or unreadable

If the turbocharger name plate is missing or difficult to read, please obtain the following information to help us determine the correct turbocharger for the application.

  • Application Engine
  • Make and Size
  • Year of Registration
  • Any additional information which could be relevant

Though the information may vary, it should tell you one of the following:

  • Turbo model or type number
  • Turbo manufacturer’s part number or assembly number
  • Vehicle manufacturer’s part number
This information is required to correctly identify the turbocharger you require.
