That sounds kinda stupid. So let me get this straight -- U.S. would get a
specially-made manifold while the rest of the world get the hand-made
ones? It sounds *VERY* odd, as Audi's U.S. sales is literally fractions
compared to sales in other parts of the world. This will only makes sense
if we get the S4 at $15,000 discount compared to the 265bhp version.

The A6 with 30v V6 has 10 more ponies than the one in A4 due to slightly
freer exhaust -- or so I recall from the posts, and from British "Car"
magazine. So we have 190bhp in the A4 and 200bhp in the A6. THe torque
stays the same at 207ft-lb. The Euro versions have 193bhp 208ft-lb for all
of its 2.8 V6 (A4, A6, A8) for insurance rate purpose.
