How Would I Know If 1.8 or 2.0 TS?

Hi All

I have the chance to pick up a 2nd hand engine at the right price. My only problem is how can I tell if it's definitely a 2.0 TS rather than a 1.8? The guy selling it tells me its a 2.0 but he doesn't have any paperwork to prove it. I'm assuming there will be a plate on the car or a way of telling from the engine number.

Many Thanks

Only the 2.0 has balance shafts.

If it has two balance shafts, then it is a 2.0
