Question What's the difference between a 119hp cdi and the 148hp engine?

Hi, I'm new but old and pretty car savvy or I used to be.
Don't take me the wrong way I'm a good egg.
Whats the difference between the two engines? I suspect its got to be mapping,injectors or turbo?
Searched the net and found nothing.
Also if I get one I will be remapping it,anyone done this themselves? I've done a couple of other cars and I can copy a tuned map if I get my hands on one so that the VIN and everything are right.

29 HP.
It apparently was an evolution of the engine - I found this write-up from Sept 2005:
"The 2.2-litre diesel engine that is the overwhelming favourite among UK buyers also benefited from some effective remedial work, giving it significantly more power and improved fuel economy at the same time. Indeed, the engineers did such a good job, it feels like a completely new engine with lots of low-down torque and a decent turn of speed when pressed."
It doesn't say what the "remedial work" was.

I know they have different ECM's as I've run two cars through Celtic tunings website to identify them to see if my MPPS flasher can read and write to them and it looks like it will.It did however give different levels of tune for the cars so I'm thinking there is something mechanically different as well
Think the first thing I will have to do is to start looking at a replacement turbos to see if they are different.

EDIT: Just been on eBay and they do have different turbos it seems.
