Why is it a different matter? It is still a high-pressure application. In fact, more power per litre than the 2.0 TFSI you mention. Can we really attribute the addtion of a cylinder to solving all the other issues? It is no I6, after all. Or perhaps was it just designed from the beginning to be a better high-po motor?
