I am pretty sure those are FI.
I remember several years ago a guy tried to sell me a 5000, I think it was an 82. It was in really decent cosmetic condition, but it ran weird - I took it for a short drive just for the hell of it. It seemed to run rich - not easy to start, and you could smell the fumes...FI must have been out of adjustmennt. I could have had it for maybe $800...but I need that like I need a hole in my head. You barely see those things on the road anymore. If I wanted one, it would have to be turbo, for the full maintenance drama effect.

I was given a 1983 Audi 5000S fuel injection. and cant find anything on it except that it was recalled in the 80's can anyone tell me anything about this?

or even where i can find a fuel distributor that would work on it?

Oh they probably mean the recalls for unintended acceleration (changes to shift lever, brake pedals) or the recall for cracking brake line hoses.
