I was traveling the other day and found two 5000s turbos in a junk yard. Are the chargers on these cars the Garrett T3? Are they worth anything? Thanks for the help.

Re: What turbo came on the 5000S (4DoorFury)

they wouldn't be Garrett would they? I thought porsche/audi/VW used KKK turbos...
I'm probably wrong

Depending on model year, the 5000 came with the KKK k24 or the k26 turbos IIRC. The 87 5KCSQ motor in my CGT has a stock k26 water cooled turbo on it.

All 5000s had K26s, but the early cars (80-85.5) had a smaller turbine exducer. The switch to watercooled was made in 1984 on the KH. The most "choice" turbo on the 5000 is the 86-88 on the MC - large exducer, water cooled.
The K24 was introduced for the 89.5 200 quattro as part of the "MC2" motor code revision.
