Default Turbo identification needed.

Ive searched and searched for what this turbo could be and havent found a thing. It was found in a shop so theres no evidence saying what type it is. All i can tell is that its small.

First person to tell me what it is accurately gets free and HJ's for life.

Exhaust housing looks like standard T3 5 bolt stuff.

EDIT: Never mind. I have no idea.

It's a T3. maybe some volvo/mercedes application.

compressor outlet was modified to accept a hose...intake flange is retarded...turbine flange is retarded.

I'd walk away.

^ buick for sure. the compressor outlet used to come off at a 90 and was cut and welded straight with hose attachment instead of the stock flange for a j-pipe. Highly doubt that thing is worth using.
