No idea on an uptated one all I can advise is depending on nature of failure make sure you resolve that before replacing. I.e check/change oil pipes etc and make sure the garbage plastic mesh filter is removed from oil feed banjo

Its not so simple on the 1.9 as the turbo and exhaust manifold is a single casting so if you decide to get a bigger turbo you will also need a new exhaust manifold, one from an earlier 16v jtdm should fit.

Turbo Dynamics may be able to bore out and uprate the compressor side of your current turbo during a rebuild, probably cheaper and easier than other options.
