Audi DTM V8's

When Audi raced in the DTM series in 1990 and 1991, with the V8, 
they had to, by the series rules, produce a limited number of cars 
with the racing style body work flairs and engine modifications for 
street use.  These cars were somewhere in between the street derived 
cars and the full race DTM machines.  When the M3 Evolutions were 
released in Europe during those years, the US dealerships could get 
some of the upgraded parts for US M3's.  I believe the engine (US 
legal) was about $13,000 US.  Did Audi ever release the upgraded 
parts, such as engine components.  This information might lead to 
significant HP increases for V8's if they are available.

Also of interest would be a history of those cars and why Audi chose 
to  drop the DTM series.
