Main ways to tell the difference: *Some LPTs didn't have a boost gauge, but all FPTs did. So no gauge means definitely LPT. *LPTs didn't have a solenoid valve, mounted at the front by the radiator. FPTs have to have one. *FPTs are way faster! I'm sure I'm missing a few, but the solenoid is the main indicator. -- Grunff
