    It says that it is a 3406E, 355 HP @ 1800 RPM, was in a Peterbilt. Build date of 12/22/95, ship date of 01/04/96. I am kind of new with the SIS system, but hopefully this is correct. It gives me all the individual part numbers as well if you need anything.

    Thanks. I'd like to know what size turbo is on it and what the HP was set at when it left the factory.

    Thank you, sir. Are you sure about the HP rating? The data sticker claims it could be 410 to 550. What's the turbo part number?

    Built date: 22Dec1995
    Ship date: 04Jan1996
    3406E / C15

    HP 355 @ 1,800 RPM


    Original turbo part number looks to be 130-6233 or a 130-9107. CAT numbers are weird.

    No, I'm not sure, and after looking at your tag I would think the that would be the information to use. I just quoted what SIS said.

    I'm not sure what size or how that turbo flows but looks like part number 0R-7136. You can look at your turbo that is currently on your engine and there should be a tag on it.

    The hp rating on your engine when shipped from factory was 355. It could of been uprated by now, I think the only way to find out what it is currently set at is to hook up to a computer.

    That data sticker you showed is something they put on every engine showing year it was produced and engine serial number. Max hp on that engine can go to 550 hp@ 1800 rpm, is how I am reading it but I could be wrong.
     
    Oxbow and JimmyWells Thank this.

    Thanks for the help gentlemen. I had a scanner on it and it claims the engine has been uprated to 525 but the truck does NOT pull like a 525 at all. I'm thinking the uprate is a gutless low emissions CAT tune.
     
    Oxbow Thanks this.

    Makes sense but what's the 410 number? I thought that was the number it left the factory with.
     
    Oxbow Thanks this.
