Its off a 1985 Dodge 600 w/ an automatic.

On the turbine side, the only markings are: A/R .48 M 26

On the compressor side,the only markings: Airesearch M 10
Its not a typo, its spelled "AIRESEARCH"
You think it's usable for my Focus given a rebuild of course? What kinda turbo is this thing. I got it off the car myself with 100K miles on it,looks and feels in very good shape. I only paid $17.00 for it from a junkyard where the teller is a friend of mine and he wrote it up as an exaust manifold!!!! SO....Keep it or Junk it??

the turbo is a small garrett t3, the exhaust flange is different than a standard t3 so you will need to buy the flange from jgs, check for shaft play, saying that it looks fine does not make it worthy of putting on a new car and dumping thousands into management to find out the seals are blown, should support up to 200hp but then it will run out of breath. my advice EBAY IT

p.s. before you get flamed, next time use the search button, AIresearch is garrett
