    you can tell as the izuzu has a wide black rocker cover and most of them have two air filter boxes. one on the left hand(as you look at front) inner wing and another above the intake manifold.

    the vauxhall engine has a long silver/alloy rocker cover and only one air filter

    hope that helps....

    Hi. If your engine is a Izuzu you shall observe(with capital letters)TURBO written in red on your valve cover.
