You have a UK car so should have a TD04 I believe. If it has a WRX engine it's been implanted later and the year will determine the turbo. What is the engine number?

Re: gc8fk8d

That's the correct engine (and ECU) for your car I think. Why do you want to change the ECU? I assume you have it mapped for the mods? Changing to a WRX or STi ECU would require a further map so that it runs safe on your engine with those mods so not worth it imo.
