Even with FADEC you may have a little stagger to sync the engines. I'm flying near factory new aircraft right now with automatic engine sync above a certain N1. With the sync on the thrust levers are dead nuts even. When we're at power settings below the auto sync we may have to manually sync causing a little split. It's very little, however, nothing like the older jets and turboprops I flew.
