factory stock turbo

Engine

Vehicle Information: Year: 1989; Engine (Size, Modifications): 3.3L; Total Mileage: 56000;

I am in the process of restoring this car. I would like to know what would have been the standard factory turbo complete with specifications. I believe this car has had a larger turbo installed. Can you determine the turbo type and model by looking at it? I have also been advised that a turbo needs to be resealed or rebuilt every 5 years or so. Is this correct? Can the turbo affect the consumption of oil ie burning? Finally I have been told that this has a constant fuel injection system and that chip technology such as a power chip would have no imapct on the cars performance. Is this correct?
