How to identify the correct turbo when your turbo PART NUMBER doesn’t exactly match the part number displayed on the website 

The turbochargers supplied to the vehicle manufacturer (OEM)  and to the Garrett Master Distributors (aftermarket) are identical in quality assurance and materials, they are just tagged slightly differently for sale to each market.

720931-5005S AND 720931-5005 ARE BOTH GARRETT AFTERMARKET TURBOCHARGER NUMBERS

(THE 5 REPRESENTS NEW SUPPLIED TO AFTERMARKET)

720931-0005 IS THE NUMBER SUPPLIED TO VOLKSWAGEN

(THE 0 REPRESENTS NEW SUPPLIED TO OE)

720931-9005 IS A FACTORY REMANUFACTURED TURBO

(THE 9 REPRESENTS GARRETT FACTORY REMANUFACTURED)

NOTICE THE 720931-***5 IS REALLY THE ONLY IMPORTANT INFORMATION here.

The other numbers are just variations of the exact same turbocharger. 

 PREVIOUS PART NUMBERS

Garrett by Honeywell upgrade their part numbers each time they make a change to the manufacturing process of the turbocharger, eg. Material content changes, adding gasket kits etc.

This may result in numerous part numbers all superceding to the latest part number

Example:

 720931-0001/720931-5001 / 720931-5001S

720931-0002/720931-5002 / 70931-5002S

720931-0003/720931-5003 / 720931-5003S

720931/-0004 / 720931-5004 / 720931-5004S

All supercede to the latest part number of:

720931-9005 / 720931-5005 / 720931-5005s

If there are alternate or previous part numbers for your vehicle’s application we will list them for you on the latest part number’s web page.

OEM (original equipment manufacturer) PART NUMBERS 

Oem Part numbers represent the part number given to the Garrett turbocharger by the vehicle manufacturer.
