how to identify turbo?

hi all, can anyone tell me what turbo is in a 96 uk turbowagon? applied code is:gf8dk8d. was registered in may 96 so before the changeover, slanty intercooler and coil on plugs. want to know if its td04 or td05. i cant access the turbo to get a look because of the chimney and ive heard its a pain to take off. the ecu is 7d a18-000d08. is there a sure fire way of telling which it is? thanks for any help u can give.

Re: how to identify turbo?

thanks m8. anyone else any input? is there a way of telling? heard about turbos either being front entry or 90 deg for td04 and td05. how can i tell? reason i need to know is because im looking to replace the ecu with a z4 one or ideally a polar performane chip into my ecu as i read some where the uk cars ecu has the slot already there to take a chip? thanks for any other opinions. cheers.

TD04 on a 96 model,will be a top entry unit...
if you go front entry,you will have to change the induction system and airbox/IK..

there is no way that they can replace each other among themselves.
