I've had both a 200 20v and now a S6, both with the same mods, and
I actually think the intercooler and plumbing is of a more efficient design
in the 200, which is why it is faster in some applications. The S4/6 has a
better engine cooling system, but this sacrifices the intercooler setup. I
am  currently upgrading my intercooler on the S6, which will give me best of
both worlds. (Hapfully)
