Can you Identify if this is Hybrid? Pictures provided.

I got this turbo from UK. My source told me its a ct20b hybrid but he does not know exactly. It was shipped disassembled. He said it needed bearing and seal. I was told that it has clipped wheels on exhaust and has bigger fan wheel.

I can not find any # on the castings as it supposed to have. However there is an "M" embedded on the exhaust housing. Check the picture.
How many fan blades are there supposed to have on the compressor side?
This one has six.

Any info or advised on what I should do? ... /my_photos

It deffinitly has an upgraded compressor. The easiest way to tell if its a CT20b is the number of studs on the turbine houseing. I'm tired so i cant remember if 7 or 8 means ct20b. I know it only has one more then a CT26.

That looks like a f'd up CT20B. If you have a set of calipers try to measure the diameter of the wheel at the largest and smallest points.
