Yeh itll have a turbo ,just no radiator to cool the air going to the engine,to make it denser and have more oxygen in it.
Intercooler is a big manufacturer cost increase cos ,like on mine there is some 6 feet of extra plumbing to get to the front radiator and the intercooler radiator itself.
No itercooler and you just need a short pipe to the inlet manifold..
If you want to check turbo types there should be a metal id tag on yours with both the renault and turbo manufacturer part number on it.
Maybe the same turbo is used fr both the 68and 86 bhp versions(dunno) but the charge cooler will account for some of the power differential.

A poster on here sometime back described how he uprated his 65 bhp 1.5 with an intercooler and remapping.
I dont think he was UK based.

Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
