    depends what sort of tt it came off...they varied in power/turbo...if I was going to guess at that year I would say it's likely a Ko4 in which it will fit but not straight on, would better off with the Ko3s for ease of fit...do you have part no. ?

    K03s from a TT has the exhaust connection at right angles to the compressor inlet. K04-02x has the outlet parallel to the compressor inlet.

    Do a google image search for the different types. You'll soon see some good pictures.
