    You can not spot FGT when your car engine is inside the car...someone has to ripp off your engine...then yank the turbocharger......and then rip it apart to show you the turbo fan that is Fixed Geometry Turbine fan which is exposed to exhaust gases through fixed vanes.....

    Ready to take that ripp off test......


    If not stay happy by looking your left side when standing in front of your car.....attached to cars engine is a miniaturized turbine that's your VGT assembly.

    Its easily visible. Just open the bonnet and look beneath the air intake.

    @ prasen123

    Do you want to replace a VGT with a FGT? Or vice-versa. Either way it's not feasible, unless you do other major mods along with it.

    Cheers.

    Thanks for response.
