    It is a tough one. I'm always suspicious if engine codes have been removed. Firstly is it transvers or inline mounted? I think you'd really need to remove the head to see which type of block it is.

    The turbo may give you a clue, find out if it is a KO4 or the K03 varient.

    sticker under the carpet in the boot, or sticker in the service manual.

    looking at the turbo isnt really worthwhile as many change these anyway. and the newer turbo is now standard even on the old ones.

    K04 and K03 is an easy on to work out, is it an S3 or the throttle body on the RHS of the engine bay.

    is it cable throttle or drive by wire ?
