Shortly after I bought my '83 (#530) TCQ in '85 I ran across an Abt (USA) 
catalog of 
goodies.  At the time, a firm in Mission Viejo, CA was rep'ng for ABt.  
The catalog offered different levels of tuning.  From this, and as I 
recall, the major differences are:

1. different camshaft
2. higher fuel pressure (different warm-up regulator)
3. different spring in wastegate => higher boost
4. non cat

comments from the group?
