How to find the right turbocharger?

Before you call us, it is worth preparing the number of the turbocharger first. This will make it easier to determine the availability and price of the turbine.

Where can you find that number?

Usually it is engraved on the plate or simply stamped on the housing of your turbocharger.

You can find there:

  • OEM number - the number given by the engine manufacturer,

  • S / N part number - the number given by the manufacturer of the turbocharger,

  • Serial no. serial number - this is the unique number of each turbocharger, the so-called pesel,

  • type - type designation of the turbocharger.
