    Remember to change the camshaft sensor pickup on the belt end of the inlet cam, the AEB cam only has one window whilst the S3 has 4. Simple job, just a 13mm bolt.

    Also if your S3 is AMK/BAM then youll need the cam chain tensiober also as the AEB head is non VVT

    Nope piece of pee, theres a few guides on the net but i just followed elsawin for removing cams. You only have to remove the inlet cam caps. Youll need a chain tensioning tool though, got mine from GSF for £4! Theres a little bit of info in my thread

    Hi all

    I manage to get hold of a AEB & AGU cylinder head, I know they are both similar which one do you recommend i keep for my Audi S3 AMK 2001...

    AEB 110,000 MILES
    AGU mileage unknown and needs a woodruff key

    thanks day

    I'd use the AGU.... It's designed to be transverse.

    All in all though, it really won't make a squirt of difference.
