The craigslist ad for this turbo states it's a "Garrett GT47 72mm Turbo VNT Ball Bearing and Billet compressor wheel"

Asked what was on the id tag and got this. "tag says honeywell and Garrett and there's 2 numbers on the tag 23531105 and GBM 14844:
Any idea as to what this is before I go look at it. A friend is considering using it to compound with a 38r.

72mm Compressor wheel would make it in the gt4294 range. If the 72mm is refering to the compressor inducer.

That wouldn't be a good turbo as an atmosphere on compounds, the gt38r has a 66mm compressor and this one is only 72. It also is Variable Nozzle Technology VNT turbine which is more suited to a single application. But the compressor housing looks HUGE to me?

I'm trying to figure out what it is. If it's a 72mm...then it's not a gt47, but rather a 42. If it truly is vnt then it just might get setup as a big single.

It looks like a s400 turbine from what little I can see in the pictures. It would be neat if the nozzle was mechanically controlled instead of electronically interfaced to the engine it was designed for.
