What's the turbo on 85 Cali called?

I know it's a kkk but I'm looking to rebuild the one I have laying around and wondering what's it's name or model number. I heard it might be a k26?

As I understand it, the epc tells me the 85 Cali model used a Garrett, but maybe not.

I for sure have the Garrett on right now, but it looks nothing like the one I'm rebuilding.

is this just a different garrett turbo than the one i have? the waste gates is different and so is the housing. it sure doesnt look like the kkk from the pictures i googled. im looking for a quicker spool and better daily driver turbo and i read the the kkk was the turbo i was looking for, plus i thought i already had it.

This is a Garrett TA0314 turbo.

If you have an '85 model year car with Garrett, that turbo should look like the pic. The '85 KKK is similar looking.

Can you post a picture of the turbo in your car?

No point in rebuilding this one then. My Garrett in the car is already rebuilt. I'll post some pictures later today. The only thing that is different is the waste gates. The picture above have a metal line going to the waste gate. Where the turbo in my car is all rubber. Think the turbo in the picture has any Value to anyone?
