Does an sd33 Turbo Engine number start with the number sd33T--------- or does it go sd33-------T.I know it sounds like a stupid question but I am looking at buying one and they say it is a turbo but eng number on reg label may say different.Thanks Brett.

If it's Factory Turbo the engine number will start SD33 and end with T eg; SD33023874T

If it was NA it won't have the T at the end.

But it may well have an aftermarket Turbo.

There are a few differences noticeable from factory turbo as opposed to after market. The easiest is that the Factory turbo engines had their own rocker cover which has the words Nissan Turbo on it. It's a totally different looking Cover to the NA

If its an after market turbo see if you can find out if the engine was modified to take the turbo ( Rings Bearings etc) Also had a much heavier duty clutch

Has yours got the Factory Turbo Rocker cover?
Yes has turbo rocker cover also says turbo diesel on compliance plate on drivers side guard.
Took the engine number off the rego papers haven't checked the lock so T may have been lost.
