    If you look at the ones on ebay, they have numbers printed on the side in the pictures?

    APY turbo won't have an EGT probe boss in the hotside... not that it matters as it can be plugged anyway...

    £250 is a little expensive for an unknown turbo though... for a little more you could get TD or CR Turbos to refurb it maybe...

    The part number is on the blue plate riveted to the compressor housing

    hi m8 yes ive looked on ebay and loads of other places, the number 06a145704px does match some turbos for a s3 and tts, but differnt engine codes like apx amk , mine is apy, and the year is differnt too, mine is a 1999, and the number 06a145704px matches 2000/2002 audi s3/tt. a freind of a friend who works for audi said that number is for my turbo, but i think he just give me the number of his turbo, hes got a 2001 s3. i need the number for mine so i can make sure it will fit. thanks
