Sorry, John, I don't know for certain. It is my hunch,
however, (I don't have a Bosch rebuilt catalog in front
of me at the moment) that the 115A and the 90A units
are physically different in your case too. Rather than
fooling with the dealer, I suggest you call your local
import auto parts store or Bosch distributor. If you can,
stop by so you can look at the catalog with them. It may
have supporting drawings or footnotes that would enable
you to determine if there is a possible swap. You could
also contact an Audi performance tuner for an opinion.
I suggest Sport Wheels (970-945-2708) an urq specialty
house in Colorado. If anyone would know, it would
probably be "Uncle" John Beckius, the owner.

Another option for finding more ampere output may be
to install an external voltage regulator kit if this
applies to your alternator.  I've done it on the 5kcstq but
haven't yet been able to drive the car enough - busted
collar bone; bicycles are damn dangerous if you ask
me - to test it thoroughly. Talk to Puma (800-333-7862).
They sell such kits to enable folks to run more watts of
auxiliary lighting, their main product area.
