Turbo Identification Help

Hi Everybody,

Is someone around slick with identifying turbonetics turbochargers? I have one that I bought about a year ago in what I was told was a PTK kit with 72MM turbo.

Thanks is advance.

-Mike

Don't see too many Turbonetics knock offs.
If you can read the turbine #s you can look them up on their website or a turbonetics catalog. As mentioned above opening it up and measuring the compressor wheel may be required...also might have something inscribed on the back of the wheel(don't know if Turbonetics does that however).

Thanks!

Thanks guys, I didn't do anything with this yet because I'm finishing getting everything ready to drop the motor in. I'm going to take a good look tomorrow.
