Default Help With Turbo Identification

I bought this turbo to put on a 1.6 for the track car I'm building over the winter and then had a wrecked 1.8 (MSM) drop in my lap. I have an upgraded IHI already and a bunch of related MSM **** from the street car so I'm trying to sell the 1.6 kit to recoup my costs. There's a FS thread going but I feel like a douche not knowing exactly what I'm selling. I think this is a GT2860rs /w .86 hotside. It was removed by a reputable shop for a 1.8/3071 swap (Adrenaline Racing outside of Portland) so I'm pretty confident it's a good piece.

Here are some pics. Let me know if a pic from a different angle is needed. I'll be the guy in the corner in the nomex suit.

Doesn't look like a GT2860RS to me, they only came in a 3" compressor inlet, my guess would be a GT28R or a GT2871R. Does it have a tag on the CHRA?

Here is what my disco looks like:

It's boxed for shipping right now and it was a pain in the *** to get all the pieces in a single box. I have this pic but I can't read it even in person.
