I don't know. Twice as many turbos, twice as many hoses to leak. ;)
But, there is one local to me for sale for <$10K.

Anyone want to chime in on the pros and cons of the C5 2.7T? (According
to AudiWorld, that would be the 2000-2001 A6 with 2.7L twin turbo V6.)

Math is hard. Let's go Audi shopping.
