    I swapped my cams and VVT from my BAM head to the AEB head. The cams will be the same but I knew the history of my BAM ones so kept them.

    All the timing stuff is easier then it sounds. Just make sure you mark up the teeth on the cams and mark the chain. The cams and crank pully are all marked up anyway with little marks so it should all be fairly straight forward

    If using the AGU cams you will need to use the cam position sensor wheel (on the end of the inlet cam) from your AMK cams.. the AGU wheel is a 2 slot designed for non VVT... the AMK will be a 4 slot..
