ABA is the engine code
X-flow is the intake style of the newer 2 liter engines. Intake goes in the front of the engine, exhaust goes out the back.
OBD is On-Board Diagnostics. OBD I was the original, and OBD II is the newer version. The difference between the 2 is that OBD II monitors more emmissions controls than OBD I.
You car is an ABA X-Flow with OBD II.

If you did not know any of that, than you are not ready to turbo your car like your sig said. Do yourself a faver spend some time reading up on your car and on the subject of turbo charging. 1st learn how everything works, 2nd learn how to drive, 3rd go really fast.
