Finding your turbo part number is easy when you know where to look!
However…if your turbo is still in the engine and the part number is difficult to see, it is easier to send us your VIN/Chassis number. We have original parts catalogues for every European, Japanese, and US OEM and can identify your part for you. If you need any assistance or advice, please Contact Us.
Turbocharger Identification by Manufacturer
Garrett turbochargers follow the same basic part number format: 6 digits, followed by a dash, followed by another set of digits (or ‘suffix’).
For example: 761302-0001 or 761302-1.
Always take note of the suffix – in many cases the first six digits may be the same, but different suffixes may well be incompatible with one another. Replacement turbochargers from Garrett add a ‘5’ and an ‘S’ to this suffix.
So, what was: 761302-0001 or 761302-1 now becomes: 761302-5001S.
This is a brand new genuine Garrett turbocharger and exactly the same product as the original installed on the production line.
Garrett turbocharger data plates also show the model series for example: GT3267, DSGT3067S, GTA4708, and so on. Don’t confuse this for the part number. Model series often cover dozens if not hundreds of different, incompatible turbochargers.
BorgWarner 3K / KKK turbochargers follow the same basic part number format:
5326 – the model number
970 – new as originally installed
7200 – the suffix
Replacement turbochargers from BorgWarner 3K / KKK replace the –970– with –988-.
So, what was: 5326-970-7200
Now becomes: 5326-988-7200
This is a brand new genuine BorgWarner 3K / KKK turbocharger and exactly the same product as the original installed on the production line.
All Mitsubishi / MHI turbochargers follow the same basic part number format: 5 digits, followed by a dash, followed by another 5 digits.
Replacement turbochargers from Mitsubishi / MHI have the same number format as above.
Mitsubishi / MHI turbocharger data plates also show the model series, for example: TDO4L4-11TK3/VG, TDO5H-16G, TDO6H-14C/14.
Don’t confuse this for the part number. Model series often cover dozens if not hundreds of different, incompatible turbochargers.
IHI turbochargers have a few different part number formats, the easiest of which to identify is a short combination of letters and numbers, e.g.: VB15, VA55B, AS12, etc.
Holset turbochargers always have the same part number format: 7 digits, e.g.: 3780211, 4035330, 5322533, etc.
BorgWarner / Schwitzer turbochargers have two part number formats, the first is: 1500– the model number, 970– new as originally installed, 9487– the suffix.
So, for example, 1500-970-9487.
1500 denotes the model, in this case S500.
This format may be on the data plate of your turbocharger, e.g. S500-9487
Replacement turbochargers from BorgWarner Schwitzer replace the -970- with -988-.
So, what was: 1500-970-9487 or S500-9487
Now becomes: 1500-988-9487
The second part number format for BorgWarner Schwitzer are simply 6 digits, e.g. 319034, 314160, 177488,etc.
