Fuel system is "upgraded" to give more torque but the actual engine is the same apart from the cambelt tensioners which are manual rather than automatic and so the belt intervals are halved on the newer engine.

200/400 = 103/105bhp
45/25 =99/115bhp Can be remapped for a good gain. SDi injectors fitted ect ect

if it came out the factory on the higher map it will have a 83KW sticker on the passenger door pillar...

also if it has rear drums it may be the lower power, but not always....

from my memory of driving both before i got mine, the 101 model did not feel like the turbo spooled up until 2K where as the 115 is going at 1800ish....

also stick your reg plate in a insurance website and see what is returned....

As mentioned you can get either remapped to the same level afterwards if you do have 101 and it is too low power for you

Got the rover 45,great car,very sluggish and noticed the actuator on the turbo has loads of adjustment,so i think i will give it a little more boost and fit my k&n for now and see what happens.

K&N's don't filter very well. You could get a Green, ITG or BMC for decent filtration, some might be better than others. Even paper filters flow okay.

fitted the K&N sounds nice but the car has no guts reallychecked intercooler pipes for splits etc,so decided to turnthe boost up on actuator and runs a bit better more responsive in 4 and 5th gear
think a tu1 box may be next.

TU1 isn't for the 45. You'l want a good old fashioned remap.

as said, the fuelling setup is different on the 200/400 to the 45.

The setup from 400 to 45 is different in the way SD to SDi isn't the same, same block, big differences to tunability.

For example the vp30 has its map stored on pump if I recall correctly, where on the sdi's it's in the ecu. Also the sdi's use the MAP sensor to asses air before deciding on the fuelling where the 45's would use the MAF sensor.

As you can see therefore plugging a tu1 into the map sensor would not increase performance as the ecu wouldn't adjust the fuelling due to adjusted map figures.
