Self Study Program 924603 – The 3.2 and 3.6 liter FSI Engine
VAG SSP 924603. The 3.2L and the 3.6L V6 FSI engines belong to the narrow V familly of engines. Their reduced V-angle, compared with a traditional V-engine, gives them an extremely compact and space-saving design.
The 3.2L narrow V6 engine was first introduced to Audi in the the TT and later the A3. This narrow V engine design is highly desirable for use in smaller vehicles due to the compact design.
The 3.2L and 3.6L V6 FSI engines are the newest representatives of the narrow V familly of engines. While the 3.2L version was first introduced in the Audi TT, the 3.6L FSI version is making its debut in the Audi Q7.
The displacement was increased from 3.2 liters to 3.6 liters, combined with the switch to the FSI technology. This yields a noticeable increase in power and torque compared with the 3.2L engine.
The 3.6L FSI engine has a maximum rated power of 280 hp (206 kW) and produces a maximum torque of 265 lb.fts (360 Nm). These two compact engines have substantial reserves of power on the road and a dynamic torque curve.
Special features of both engines:
- Retention of external dimensions
- FSI direct gasoline injection
- Four-valve technology with roller rocker arms
- Internal exhaust gas recirculation
- Single-piece variable-length intake manifold made of plastic
- Weight-reduced cast iron crankcase
- Chain drive located on the transmission side with integral drive for the high-pressure fuel pump
- Continuously variable intake and exhaust camshafts
The use of FSI direct fuel injection technology makes it possible to meet current Low Emission Vehicle (LEV2) emission standards.
