    The BAM is a small port head, and i think the AGU is large port. The mounting for the tensioner is the same so they will swap over without issues. The head will physically fit, at normal tune levels it will present no problems,make sure you use the inlest and exhaust gaskest from the BAM

    Try for an AEB or AJL head they are both large port, you will just need to swap your manifolds and sensores etc on to it

    BAM and APU are small port, so whomever told you has made an error slightly. The rest is correct.
