    Help Identifying Turbo

    I bought my car with these turbos, and I am just trying to verify what the seller told me. I was told they were 15g's and to me, that's what they look like. However I am no expert, can anyone confirm or deny this?

    49177-?????

    Can you measure the inducer or exducer diameter?

    It looks like a g wheel. Just don't know which. Is the compressor inlet tapered or straight?

    Edit: It seems to read 00620 which would be the part number for an 11b?
    I'm guessing I would have to pull the housing to get the diameters?

    No I think if you can measure the ID of the compressor inlet, that'll give you a ballpark - especially if the inlet is straight and not tapered.

    FYI, inducer diameter is 1.625" for a 15G and 1.580" for a 13G.

    Might just be my computer but your pics aren't working, and the inlet appears to be a consistant diameter throughout.

    They're just pics showing that 13Gs and 15Gs look a lot alike, and look just like your picture. They're from stealth316, I forget if hotlinking is enabled or disabled from that site.
