Default MK3 Golf TDI what turbo unit?

Hello. My Tdi seems to smoke a lot when I accelerate hard.
I only notice at night in the rearview mirror as the smoke drifts into the car's headlights behind.
Makes me think the turbos shot. Seals or something..Shes not performing well also. (I haven't had it long)
Anyway, I'm gonna replace the unit.
Can somebody please inform me of the correct turbo unit to get.
I've sourced a replacement from a K reg(92) Td golf. Mine is Mreg (95)
Whats the unit in the 95?
Can any other units be used, more stronger perhaps?
Thanks for any replies, I really appreciate it. I'm new to Turbo diesels.

If you are interested in getting one from the US--this place has great prices...they have told me that they regularly ship turbos all around the world...

Talk to Shane. For your turbo it should cost ~275 for a KKK, or slightly more for a Garrett.
