K27 turbo, possible to visually determine if 7006 or 7200 compressor wheel? (pics)

I was wondering if there is any way to look at the compressor wheel on a K27 to determine if its a 7006 or 7200 wheel?

I have a K27/6 with a 7006 part # which i am planning on putting on my 951. I am fairly certain the turbo has the 7006 wheel which as i understand it is not ideal for quick spool, especially with my 2.5L 951. I contacted Turbo Performance out in California and they said they can purchase the 7200 compressor wheel, install then balance the entire turbo..effectivley making it a K27/6 7200 for about $300. I just wanted to verify before sending the turbo out that its indeed a 7006 wheel on the inside.

I figure you 930 guys will be the most educated on these K27's.
