    Whats the purpose of this mod? Isn't BAM supposed to be the best 1.8T engine?

    Also why change the head only?

    AEB is large port head for big power big turbo conversions

    BAM is a small port head for better throttle responce and less lag

    Its easier to just change the head as the AEB is out of passats and A4 so mounted the other way round. Also has an external water pump and a few other differences. I'm currently building an APY block, AEB head, Bam ECU & harness. Mix and match for the win :yes:
