Help me name this turbo..
Buddy of mine has had this turbo in his garage at home for a while now. it was there when he moved in. We have been trying to figure out what car/truck it came from. numbers on it are 139049 and 51t/32 2145n. i think its from a turbo diesel but im not sure.

Same turbo that's found on a 95~97 6.5L turbo diesel Chevy 2500.

IIRC it's the equiv. of a Holset HX30?

Just did a google search for a 51t/32 or 51T-32.

Biggest thing you need to find out is what the wastegate spring pressure is. IIRC, the older GMC's with this turbo run around 15~17psi of gate pressure (~1bar of boost).
