The 115 is the engine max. power output in horsepower (115hp) and the 285 or 310 the max. torque in Nm, the basic engines are the same I believe, it's just a mapping change that results in the extra torque. If I understand correctly, the 115hp engine in the Mk2 is engine code AUY, usually there's a bar coded sticker on the uppermost plastic timing belt cover of the engine that will have the basic engine code on it- if yours is still legible you should be able to see 'AUY' on it somewhere. The increased max. torque output is denoted by a '1' on the end of the AUY, but confusingly you won't see the 1 after the engine code on said sticker even if you have an 'AUY1' variant- the reason for this is because, as stated above, the basic engine unit is the same, it's just a software change. If you have an 'AUY' then you have the 115hp/285Nm version, if you have an 'AUY1' then you have the 115hp/310Nm variant. There's a bit more discussion on it here.
