Check the numbers on the front & then see if there is anything on the rear as well.. Standard T2 on the rear will have .35, T25 is .49 usually, you can get .63 & .47 rear housings as well though. Pretty sure T25 will have a 48 a/r on the front as well.

My turbo has ar 48 on the front, and .63 rear. Is this a full t25 or a t2/25?

Depends mate as they could be a T25 .48 housing or a T2 .48 housing. The .63 isn't standard 5 so thats bigger but could still be a T2 housing, doubt it'll be T25 housing as that would be too laggy.
Normally pic helps out as can see actual size of the turbo. and also what core it uses.

thanks Mark,  I will see what I can do about a picture.  I had called Turbo technics some time ago to enquire about the spec of the unit but I cant find the notes I jotted down anywhere...typical!!
