Take the cam cover off and inspect it is the only way. They are quick anyway tho, lol !

take a photo if you can let us look.

if you take off the distributor and see original VW marking (e.g vw 010 123 321)
then its standard .. or if its like mine e.g (bp 276 g40)
then that would be a piper cam ...

hope that helps a bit
