Nope. Precision uses their own internals as of 2006. Now, if it's older than that, it's possible to use a Garrett system. But not Turbonetics.

trim is just a calculation between inducer and exducer of a compressor and turbine wheels. Not internal structure

Again, you gotta know what what year the precision is.. you're going to have to take a risk after you take your turbo apart. Sorry.
