Your Turbo Nameplate
A nameplate will vary according to whether it relates to an original equipment turbo installed by the vehicle manufacturer or to a turbo bought through the independent Aftermarket. The nameplate shows a customer or Garrett part number, turbo model and serial number – providing you information that might help you order a replacement turbo.
See photos of nameplate examples of OE turbos and replacement turbos.
· Nameplates may vary according to geographic region, assembly plant and local requirements.
· Details engraved directly onto the nameplate pad or onto a separate nameplate, which is then bonded on top of the original factory nameplate.
· Note: you may see Garrett, Garrett AiResearch, AlliedSignal, Garrett Engine Boosting Systems or Honeywell logos on older turbos.
