Identify the turbo
« on: 16:42, Tue 08 February 2011 »
I have a used engine from a 1991 Raider thats been in stock for some time. Its in superb condition and has been tagged up with a "49k" label. The engine is immaculate and looks spot on.

The turbo on the car ( again in mint condition ) has a dark green twin port actuator and has the numbers BC M27 A/R 48 on the front and on the exit pipe ( intercooler hose port ) it has "87." stamped on the inside. The air intake of the turbo is circular with a larger diameter rim surrounding it.

Is this turbo special or am i talking sh*t ?

Could be a T2 .48 housing which would make it standard size.

Does it look bigger than a standard turbo, if you can get pic sometimes its easier to identify.
