Well, there are 250 horses there, but not the screaming ones that
you'd think.  Well, they are fast horses, but they don't scream.  I
found a .pdf file, which I can send to you if you'd like, that tells
all about the 2.7t engine.  Basically, the S4 engine is programmed to
be balls to the wall, whereas the A6 has a more comfort/torque
oriented programming.
Still, it is fast, and if it is anything like my '01 S4, the smile
only widens as you run through the gears...
And, as you can see from my list, the slippery slope does indeed start here...

'01 S4 MT-6
'90 V8q
'86 5kcstq
