Volkswagen Audi 2.5 R5 TDI Engine Specs and More
This engine is the 2.5-liter 5-cylinder inline turbo diesel engine with pump injection system. Its life began in 1989. The engine was designed and developed by Audi, and it was the first Turbocharged Direct Injection engine in the production. The primary development goal was to use the engine in various models.
The cylinder block is made of gray cast iron. It has six main bearings and forged steel crankshaft. Aluminum pistons have bowl-shaped geometry. On top of a block, there is the aluminum 10-valve cylinder head (two valves per cylinder). There is only one camshaft (SOHC), which is driven by timing belt. The valvetrain is equipped with hydraulic tappets/lifters for automatic valve clearance compensation.
The fuel delivery system consists of the belt-driven Bosch VP37 electronic distributor injection pump and two-stage direct injection (DI) with five-hole injector nozzles. The engine is turbocharged. There is Garrett variable geometry turbocharger (VTG), cast aluminum intake manifold, and no intercooler.
The engine was very successful. It was quite simple yet, didn't have sophisticated systems and electronics. It was easy to maintain and tune. The longevity is tremendous with proper operation. The fuel consumption is pretty low for this size of displacement.
