I don't think so.  A third party ECU (e.g., 034EFI) would solve
that problem simply enough.  The lack of turbo options may be
the need for long piping or dual turbos.

If I *had* to have a turbo V6, I'd find an S4 bi-turbo and
plug it in. But it won't be cheap.  My reality check says
save the aggravation and sell my car and buy a) an urS4/S6
or b) buy a newer bi-turbo S4 -- it would take less time
and be cheaper in the long run.
