What turbo is on a 97 type r

As above - been offered a 2nd turbo in good condition from a damaged type r 1997.
Would this be a good upgrade for an 03 wrx. I already have nearly all the other parts I need such as decatted uppipe and downpipe, performance air filter, h & s exhaust (centre and back) uprated fuel pump, 3 port boost solenoid, sti intercooler and scoop.
I know I still need injectors (will be looking for some sti pinks) as well as the turbo and a full custom map to match the new mods, so im just wondering would the above go well with that turbo and what figures should I expect to get on 97ron super.
The turbo is up for 150 but the owner doesn't know what one in the vf series it is. But it can't be bad at that money.
I'd assume the injectors from that car wouldn't fit mine or be big enough, can anyone confirm this?
