Ian, while most people's best guess would be that a V6 (let alone turbo V6)
would not fit in an Audi TT, don't be so quick to conclude as such.  Check out
HPA motorsports at www.hpamotorsports.com[1].  They have shoehorned the new 24-valve
VR6 (found in the new Jetta and GTI) into an Audi TT with either a SINGLE or
TWIN turbo attached to it!!  No joke.

Anything can be done if you put your mind (and $$$) to it :)  I was going to
make my Mk4 GTI VR6 a twin turbo unit but I decided to get the S4 instead ;)
