Hey guys, I've got an easy one for you. I was given an engine a while ago that I kept as a spare, and I'd like to figure out what exactly it is.

It's an earlier turbo engine, that much I know for sure. It looks *basically* like the MC-1 I know and love, but being an earlier one it's got the dual oil filter setup and the dual throttle switch setup. It does have a knock sensor, which I thought was introduced with the MC's, but I guess I'm wrong. Doesn't have the turbo on it, so no help there. It's got an oil cooler with it (lines are still attached) that is a VW type-4 oil coler with an adaptor plate to allow it to have the lines screw onto it. It's laying dipstick side down so I can't get the code without much backache.

How simmilar is it to an MC-1, especially the block and cylinder head themselves?
