Nicejits it has to be 1991 where did ECU's came into picture in 1919? And if it is 1919 then its a rare vintage.

It would be possible for the engine to be turbochaged. MB had a turbo engine of the same capacity .

Remapping the engine wont be possible, however swapping it would be. I would suggest not to and keep the stock engine and get it overhauled at the most. Swapping a engine is not easy and requires expertise, you also need lots of patience to sought out small issues which crop up.
