Diesel Turbo Tuning

Does anyone know if its possible to exchange my standard turbo with another on a 1 for 1 basis, or to maybe tweak the standard unit somehow, not sure how much boost the turbo is capable of taking safely tho ?

Car is a 2001 E46 320d 136bhp now remapped to around 165bhp - 170bhp, looking to start tuning it to the next level hence turbo questions.

Someone elsewhere reccomended a Seat Leon Cupra Tdi Turbo as they are aparantly capable of taking 250bhp and a good whack of pressure, not been able to find out how simple such a swap would be tho
