• Audi's 2.5 TFSI inline-5 does it yet again, fourth straight Intenational Engine of the Year award - 2013 best 2.0-2.5 liter engine

      Back to back to back to back. Even Michael Jordan can't say he did that but Audi can say their 2.5 TFSI turbo inline-5 is the best 2.0 liter to 2.5 liter motor on the planet. And Audi can say it for the fourth straight year. This motor simply dominated the 2.0-2.5 liter displacement category and deservedly so. This is a mod friendly motor with great power and torque for its size not to mention clean emissions for its power level which ranges from 310-360 horsepower depending on application.

      This motor is currently used in three Audi applications ranging from the TT-RS, Audi RS3, and Audi Q3 RS. It is capable of over 500 horsepower at the wheels. It quite simply is one of the best inline-5 engines ever made and don't take my word for it. One the Chinese engineering judges wrote, "It will likely be remembered as one of the greatest five cylinder engines in the history of internal combustion technology."

      Now that is seriously high praise! Congratulations Audi, it is deserved.

        This is a great engine! 2.0 to 2.5l, this would include the A45 engine, right?

        I'd bet if any motor knocks this off it will be that one. Next year.

        Actually, no, it will knock the BMW N20 out. It's at 1991cc so I have no clue what is beating this.

        Ah, interesting. So Audi has "no" competition at this level.

        I can't think of a motor to dethrone it.

        can't wait for another few years when the aftermarket grows huge for that 2.5 and people push it to the limits. I mean APR has effortlessly got it over 500whp already. If the fueling is there this can put up some really respectable numbers.
