    it was labeled on the waste gate actuator. i wonder if you could call a dodge dealer and see if they are the same part number. that might be easier because there are a ton of numbers on them.
    where was the r4 that you saw.

    An 06 turbo will not work on an 03 truck. The wastegate on the 03 is mechanical vs electric on the 06 and the downpipe on the 06 is 4 inch vs 3.5 inch on the 03. There could be other differences as well. They are not the same.

    Let me rephrase that, it is not a direct replacement. You will have to get some other parts to make it work. I have found www.cumminsforum.com to be a very helpful place to get all my Cummins Dodge questions answered.
