How do you check your turbo model ?

Post by Fiodor »

Hello everybody!

I've got a 97 V70 T5 with the 2.0L engine (B5204T3).
I was wondering how I could check which turbo I have on it, could someone help me out ?

Thanks !

The best way is to look at the turbo, since you can;t be totally sure the original turbo is still on there. It's the fastest and easiest way too.

Look down between the engine and the firewall for the ID plate. You may have to wipe off accumulated grunge. This turbo is a 13g:

I realized I never answered my own question, these engines are fitted with a 16T when they are on the V70 !

I'm surprised actually, I would have guessed 13g for that model year. Good to know!
