    • Audi 3.0 TFSI V6 to lose supercharger and gain single turbo

      This is a potentially interesting development. In reveling details to Automobile Magazine about the Q6 it seems Audi let it slip that the Q6 would come with the 3.0 TFSI but with a turbo instead of the supercharger, "Under the hood it will offer a revised 3.0-liter TFSI V-6, which drops the supercharger in favor of a single turbo." The Q6 isn't scheduled to arrive for a few more years so don't expect this motor in current generation Audi's.

        that's just awesome. big plus they needed to move into the direction with better gas mileage and of course nice power.

        It is a plus, just going to be a while until we see it. I personally like the SC V6 though.

        Yes I agree, I hope it comes soon. I am very impressed with the SC V6, it looks promising.

        I'd be more in favor of a single turbo if it was top mounted.

        I just love superchargers...
