On the same block:

TAMD31 is 130hp. Has an intercooler. Probably different fuel pump and injectors and Turbo as well?

AD31p is 150hp. Uprated version of above - revs a bit higher but I don't know what mods there are.

KAD32 is 170hp. Has a supercharger as well as all of the above.

At volvo prices I reckon uprating might be uneconomical.
