Identify CT26 Turbochargers for Toyota Land Cruiser:
In the Australian market, the turbocharged Diesel 4.2L Toyota Land Cruiser came with 3 different motors.
These 3 motors were coupled to 3 different turbochargers, that were not interchangeable between models.
Known for rugged reliability, these 4WD Toyota Land Cruiser models are still popular today, despite their age.
The models in Australia and their respective engine, output and Manufacture Years (MY), were as follows:
HDJ80R: MY: 01/1990 – 12/1994.
Output: 164HP (122 kW).
HDJ80R: MY: 01/1995 – 12/1997.

With 3 different motors across the 4.2L diesel Land Cruisers, and 3 different CT26 Turbos, it’s important you select the correct Toyota CT26 turbo for correct fitment.
Most turbocharger part numbers are usually found on a plate or tag located on the compressor (aluminum) side of the turbo.
The Toyota CT26 Turbo for Land Cruisers do not have this OEM (Original End Manufacturer) number located here.
There is usually the casting identifier (CT26 only) visible as a casting in the aluminum of the compressor shell.
The CT26 compressor shell is used on a number of different turbo configurations, so it is not accurate to use CT26 to determine the correct unit for your vehicle.
