The Third-Generation Turbocharged Engine for the Audi 5000 CS and 5000 CS Quattro 860103
In September 1985 the new Audi 5000 CS quattro was introduced to the American market. This luxurious high performance touring sedan has been equipped with a more advanced turbo-charged engine with intercooler and electronic engine management giving improved performance, excellent torque, faster response and better fuel economy.
The basic engine is the tried-and-tested Audi 5-cylinder unit. The turbocharged engine's ancillary systems, the electronic ignition control and fuel injection have all been newly developed, carefully optimized and well matched in the special demands of a turbocharged engine. The ignition system controls the engine and fuel injection and delivers analog and digital signals to the car's instrument panel display. The system also has an integrated self-diagnostic function.
