    Fairly sure they are a different ECU... AMK introduced wideband lambda, VVT and a few other features... not sure if they are compatible... immo version may be different too...

    Right, with you now.... APY (IIRC) has SAI so you will need to blank that, swap the VVT/cam chain tensioner over too the APY head and all should be good...

    Only other thing I would advise if you are having to strip the head to to consider getting the exhaust guides replaced... these wear very quickly and so I have been told can contribute to valve failure...

    VVT is part of the cam chain tensioner and can be done with the head on... ideally requires a cam chain tool (about a tenner on ebay) and careful alignment of the cams but its not that difficult... there are a few guides kicking about on places like VW Vortex (I think I have linked to it a couple of times here but god knows where) so have a google...

    Secondary Air Injection (SAI) is a system used on some 1.8t's for emissions... the AMK/BAM S3's don't use it and it will be bolted to the gearbox side of the head if still there (by the plastic water housing) or may have already been blanked off...

    No, no, no.....

    Don't get a second hand one dude. I know they are expensive, but installing a second hand one is a mistake. They never seem to work properly once they've been fitted and removed anyway to be honest.

    A new one at Audi seems to vary depending on where you go. Shop around.

    On the angine note, how have you ended up with an APY engine in an AMK car?

    A screamer pipe? OK, well it must have an external wastegate then for one to be fitted at all. So not a K04 as they are internally gated.

    Sounds interesting.

    That looks to be the right on to be fair - check the part number though.

    If I were you, I'd phone up Audi and ask them what part you need. Then get the part number and cross reference it against that item.

    Could get yourself a bargain there, they are about 300 new.
