I've been going through some of the history that came with my car (2002 996 Turbo).
I noticed that on some of the service receipts the model is listed as Turbo S, now I know it's not an 'S' being MY2002.
I did come across a "Vehicle Master Enquiry Print" from an OPC dated 2004 that appears to list all of the options fitted to my car, this list is a lot longer than that listed on the stickers under the frunk and in the service book (both still present and readable).
There are a couple of things listed on the stickers that aren't on the print out (and lots of things on the print out that are not on the stickers) but everything listed from both sources is on the car.
One of the options on the print out is "X50 - Performance Kit for Turbo"
My question, can the print out be trusted? Google suggests I should try to take a look at the intercoolers.
I will be applying for a COA soon and hopefully this will solve things once and for all?

If you have an X50 then...

Congrats

But there are alot of cars that 'think' that they are X50 but they are not Sad

Fingers crossed for you Thumb

Put your hand up the intercooler air outlet at the rear corners of the car, if the fins on the intercooler are raised off the surface they are x50 ones, if they are flush they are not.

Any OPC will confirm if you have the factory-fitted X50 option.
It ran larger (K24) turbos versus the stock K16's and larger intercoolers as well as a different ecu map.

The challenge might be that someone fiddled with the map or replaced the intercoolers with less expensive standard intercoolers in the belief that for road use at speed limits here, it wont make any difference.Such actions may make it difficult to confirm if its X50.

I am surprised if you're getting X50 on some papers but not in the bonnet sticker or the service book sticker (which is an identical copy of the bonnet sticker). I've not cone across such an anomaly.

Google suggests I'm not the only one to have this, as I say there's a long list of options on the car, I'd say 75% aren't on the sticker.

Yes, fins are raised like the GT2 intercoolers Thumb

That is a good sign. Nobody in their right mind would retrofit x50 intercooler.

Agreed. Cant see anyone fitting the more expensive (GT2 RS?) intercoolers to a stock 996 Turbo.

They would fit those, they wouldn't fit x50 intercooler. If the ones on the car are x50 ones I would say there is a good chance they are original. I swapped my x50 ones out for GT2 RS ones years ago.
