    Yup, it's definitely a Mitsu TD04 turbo (although I've heard debate about exactly WHICH TD turbo it is). All non-STi's come with it. The STi comes with the IHI VF39. The IHI VF turbos are a favorite upgrade because they're not very large and have an internal wastegate.

    Don't know about the thread size though, sorry. :(
