Identify your turbo
- Garrett Turbo part numbers can be found in the bottom left as highlighted in the picture on an ID tag or the flat machined surface of the compressor housing and begin with a 7 or a 4.
- Mitsubishi part numbers can be found on the machined surface on the compressor housing. The part number will consist of two groups of 5 numbers, the first group beginning with 4 and the second group beginning with 0 (e.g. 49173-07507). In some cases the number will be on a plate which has been riveted on the compressor housing. In some cases, the first two digits (49) may be absent.
- KKK part numbers can be found on a plate which is riveted onto the compressor housing. The part number will be on the bottom row of numbers on the plate. An example of this would be 5304-970-0050. They also come in an abbreviated style such as K04-0050 or BV39-050.
- IHI part numbers can be found on the compressor housing. The part number will be highlighted as ‘Turbo Spec’ and usually begins with ‘VJ’, ‘VF’, ‘VV’ etc. followed by two numbers.
All remanufactured turbochargers carry a 24 month warranty from the date of supply, with an upper limit of 12,000 miles per year in service, provided that the turbo has been fitted and serviced in accordance with both the fitting instructions from The Turbo Shop, and those of the vehicle manufacturers.
The Turbo Shop does not regard any warranty period above 24 months to be of benefit to our customers as turbochargers incorrectly built will fail long before 24 months from fitting. Failure after this period will invariably be caused not by faulty manufacture, but by circumstances outside the control of the original turbo build.
The Supplier Warranty on remanufactured turbos is given for a period of 24 months from the date of purchase and covers mileage up to a maximum of 12,000 miles per year. The Supplier Warranty on either new or hybrid turbos is given for a period of 12 months and covers mileage up to a maximum of 12,000 miles per year from the date of purchase. Proof and date of purchase of turbocharger and replacement turbo oil feed pipe will be required before any claim can be made under the Supplier Warranty.
The Supplier Warranty is limited to the repair or replacement of the turbocharger only. Particular attention should be paid to the turbocharger's oil supply, ensuring that a high degree of cleanliness is maintained while fitting the turbocharger. The Turbo Shop shall not be liable for any repairs or replacement if turbocharger failure is due to insufficient cleanliness during the fitting process.
No liability will be accepted if the turbocharger boost setting is outside the figures recommended by The Turbo Shop or the original vehicle manufacturer. To comply with this warranty, the boost pressure must always be checked after fitment.
Proof, in the form of receipts, may be required to verify that routine servicing has been carried out as per the manufacturer's recommendations from when the turbocharger was fitted. Special emphasis is placed upon oil change intervals, oil filter replacement and engine oil quality. In this respect, The Turbo Shop recommend that you use a grade of oil that meets or exceeds the specification of oil suggested by your vehicle manufacturer, as documented in the handbook.
We aim to be sympathetic to every warranty claim, but can only repair or replace units that fail due to defective workmanship or parts. Failures due to circumstances or conditions outside our control cannot be accepted under The Turbo Shop warranty. The warranty is not transferable.
