      Looking to buy an '83 rabbit 1.6 diesel engine that was Turboed with an aftermarket kit (or maybe not aftermarket) by the PO, so the current owner of the engine does not know the history of the turbo. However, the current owner bought the car with the turboed engine and has driven the car for 3 years with no problems.

      How can I tell if this turbo is an ebay kit, prothe, OEM, etc.? Is there a way to find out, perhaps a stamp or anything?

      I am going to see the engine soon and the turbo is installed on it.
