I'm not sure but it should say in 2 places: your owner's manual and on top of the valve cover there should be a sticker saying. The main difference in that era was pumpe duse PD enignes or not. The PD engines take 505.01 VW spec oil and prefer 5w-40 - thicker oil, the non PD engines can take a wider range of diesel oils.

Camshaft failure - it sounds like a PD engine which had bad timing. The turbo shouldn't go though, they normally last the lifetime of the car. An 05 should be a PD engine.
