When K16's and K24's left the factory the ID tag was placed on the backplate. It's tough to see when the turbochargers are installed. They are now placed on the compressor housing cover.

If you are seeing 1 bar of boost around 4300 to 4600 RPM's you most likely have K24's or K24 hybrids.. The only way to verify your turbine wheel, is to read the raised casting number on the K24 hot/turbine housing. Or remove your CAT's and measure the exducer of the turbine wheel.

Thanks for the advise Kevin. I will measure the turbine housing to be 100% sure what I have and will report back.

My display only read 0.8 BAR as we know, but I would have add an aftermarket boost gauge to monitor the boost build up and later remove it since I don't want aftermaket gauges in my car
