Default Identifying OBD Type ?

Quick question for you folks. Is there anyway you can identify the OBD type on your ECU ? Im not looking for someone to say "XYZ engine is OBD type x" Im looking for a way of finding it out myself.

What should I be looking for codes on the ECU itself ? or are things as simple as "Year XYZ Is OBD X" etc.

Thanks for your input folks.

Curious but how do you decide what is OBD2a and OBD2b then ? Does what your saying apply to all cars regardless of whether they are sold in the US or the UK ?

Cheers man,

Cheers man, I shall go checkout my ECU when I get some daylight. Curious but is there anyway of finding out what ECU you have by hooking it up to a pc ? I know you can buy specific diagnostic equipment but can you fabricate anything to work with a standard PC ?

Thanks all for your help, hopefully this thread will help others asking the same question !
