The Direct Injection System of the 2001 Audi Turbo V8 Le Mans Engines 2002-01-3357
Audi's successful 3.6 L V8 twin turbo Le Mans engine of 2000 has been developed to fuel direct injection (FSI®). Most of the modifications have been done in the area of the cylinderhead. Simulation and flow test bench work helped to define the basic parameters. The FSI® engine has a reduction in fuel consumption of 8 - 10 %, up to 9 % more torque throughout the entire speed range and much better driveability.
