Actually the '92-94 S4 (and 95 S6) AAN engine's torque curve is similar
to that of the biturbo S4's. It also reaches its peak low in the
sub-2000 range and maintains it throughout the useful powerband. It
uses a single K24 turbo instead of dual K03s. While it doesn't spool
quite as fast as the K03s it's not bad at all.
