Go look at the Bosch catalog at a Bosch dealer.  Last time I looked,
the 83 Urq used the same fuel distributor as one of the 5kTs.
Though I thought it was the 86 that I saw.  If it is '86,
may be an early model because the fittings used
to connect the injector lines are different on my '86 - flare not
banjo.  It is quite likely that a banjo would work (I'll take a
look at mine) - if so, you can probably use an 86 to early 89
T or CSQ fuel distributor.

Looking at the hp ratings as well as fuel pressure, it sure
looks like the 86 would be a closer match.

A quick look at the parts fiche reveals:

035 133 481 M	up to VIN ...039767
034 133 481 C   from  VIN ...039768

These being '86 VINs.

...and a further look indicates the first part uses fuel lines
with banjo connectors.
