Well, I have them all form the mid-seventies :)
I think I looked into the '94...

I am not at home now, but I suspect that the lower figures are for the 3B
engine that was used in the first S2s.
This is the same engine code as the 20V of the 200 20V.
Just looked at 
Markus is a very reliable person and he lists
3B: 309 @ 1950 U/min.
ABY: 350/380 from 1950 U/min. onwards
I highly suspect that the higher value is in overboost mode (see below).

Hm, about 9% more torque? If this is true, wth did they with that engine?
Could someone have mixed up the figures of the normal engine state and when
in superboost mode.
IIRC the ABY was able to provide larger boost for a short period of time,
when overtaking for example.

I am always interested in Audi stuff as you can imagine :)
But you don't have to. I believe that there is 380.
I'look around if I find something else. 
And if you find time to scan it, I won't reject it :)
