I've seen both of these rumors elsewhere and the sources seemed good.

Do you know what modification was done to the 1.8T to get the extra power? I'm hoping it's just a chip change because then I'm a little less nervous about chipping my '98 A41.8T. On the A4 site they said that only the 180hp engine would only come with the manual tranny. Tiptronics would stay with the 150hp engine.

The rumors I've heard about the A6 were that it would get the light pressure version of the 2.7.

Thanks for the info.
