Check for a sticker under the hood. If you don't see anything, order a kit. I ordered mine from ecstuning.com for around $250. Search for the DIY on audiworld and devote a day to tearing your car apart. Follow the directions and prepare (make sure you have the tools). Also try the search feature of this forum, it's a great way to find information.

Edit: Here's the link for the do it yourself write up. http://www.audiworld.com/tech/eng35.shtml

I just turned over 145k and I just did my TB for the second time. Better safe than sorry.
