Audi 80s and 100s from the late Seventies / early Eighties had carb-fed in-line fives (badged 5S rather than 5E)...

I loved the 5 cyl 20v turbo in my Audi 200 quattro. Unfortunately even turbocharged and chipped, I only got 270hp which is comparable to 4cyl engines today.

I seem to recall reading about a car maker that used a 6 cyl engine and simply blocked off one cylinder to make a 5 cylinder. Want to say it was a tresser audi, but can't recall.

I gather you mean 170HP.

I had a 5000, essentially the same thing with no turbo. Great car especially for its era but God what a dog that motor was. I mean, I guess 120HP was kind of impressive from 2.2L in those days, but to put that thing in the flagship car of a luxury brand... no.

The flagship Audi in the early 80s was the 5000 turbo (turbocharged 5 cylinder). It had adequate power. By comparison, the 2.2 liter 4 cylinder in the Dodge Omni/Plymouth Horizon had 100 hp.

Your non-turbo was not the flagship as I am pretty sure the turbo engine was available for all the years of the 5000. The turbo + quattro in the 5000 was the flagship. The initial turbos were rated around 140 hp. That is still pretty low for a flagship. I had the 1989 200 turbo Quattro (2.2 I-5 turbo). That was rated 162 hp. It was a great car that I got for a huge discount because of the unintended acceleration nonsense.

That, and saving weight and cost.
