Incredibly unlikely, for a few reasons.
1. The Quattro transmission is incredibly strong.
2. A flat torque curve is good... the longer flat, the better.
3. The flat torque curve on turbo Audis is a result of the turbo, not some
amazing feat of Audi engineering. =)
Just my 2c...
2000 A6 2.7 biturbo quattro http://www.quality.nu/bradw/audi/
2 turbos, 1 driver ... no limits
