My '14 A6 does the same thing when manually shifting from 2 down to 1 unless you're almost completely stopped. I always thought that was a "torque converter" thing. (?)

From a straight forward point of view it only stands to reason the C6 ZO6/Grand Sports would have the same problem unless something is different on the LT1 system. In that case whatever the...

Are we talking the air intake where the filter is or the actual intake mounted on top of the engine?

I like being able to switch from quite to loud. I installed a "mild to wild" remote switch on my 2012 Grand Sport for the same reason. I installed the Magnaflow Competition Series dual 18-inch...
