Which engine do I have? CDNC, EA888 v1, v2??

Turns out I don't have an EA113 as I though after the guy I bought it from told me it had a belt not a chain.
I've only realised after I've gone to change my cam follower and noticed my HPFP doesn't look like it should! Seems odd though as the car came with a receipt at 50k odd miles for a water pump and belt change.

Anyway, does anyone know if CDNC refers to a gen 1 or gen 2 EA888? What are the differences?

Are the revised cam followers (with a roller) not an issue anymore?

Should I be rushing out to have the cam chain tensioner changed? Can't see any record of it being done but if it hasn't failed by now (just over 100k) will it ever?

I can't see any evidence of the infamous oil consumption recall work having taken place. It does use a bit of oil but not a huge amount.

Just slightly concerned as I was under the impression the ea113 was the more reliable engine.

Thanks in advance
