Thanks for the insight, I need all the bits and tidbits I can get my
hands on.

I knew about the ignition, but I wasn't aware there was a difference in
the intake path. I'll have to nose around and learn about that.

RS2 turbo definitely has a higher boost threshold 
than the stock K24.  As I said, I'm into some boost
below 2K and maxed out below 3K.  I'm a little 
envious of the RS2 guys pushing 400HP, but the
tradeoff of that high boost threshold is a bit
much.  I think some of the Garret hybrids offer a
bit of the best of both worlds, but it is still
a fundamental compromise.
As for AAN vs. 3B, the biggest difference is the distributorless
ignition, followed by the shorter intake path.  Both mean higher HP
potential in the AAN, but I think both motors have the same basic
internals. -Matt
