Engines with this intake manifold are the XU5J, XU9J1, XU5JA, XU9JA and XU9JAZ. All can be said to be "GTI" engines.

It's hard to tell with this blurred picture but this one could be a XU9J1 (105hp), XU5JA (115hp) or XU9JA (130hp).

You really need to check the tag plate on the block, this could also be a carb engine fitted with the GTI ancillaries.

It’s the three letters on the riveted plate that matter. Ends in B and is probably D6B which is a gti engine.

Do you mean is it a GTI 'S' engine? - Skip Brown.

 

Maybe JSB is one of their designations?
