Where about on a vr6 engine is the code?

My vr golf is making 189bhp so i want to check is it a 2.8 or was
it changed to a 2.9 at some stage.

Does anyone know the codes for each engine?

i think AAA is a 2.8

ABV is a 2.9

the codes should be on a sticker where the cam cover would be if it had a timing belt if you know what i mean

the only 2.9 golf from the factory was the LHD only VR6 syncro
It ran obd2 management and a few other tweeks(different air mass meter thingy
etc)
