    I`ve got and 01 210bhp S3 engine code AMK. The cylinder head is cracked so I need a replacement. The problem is I have located two S3 heads with engine numbers BAM and APY. Is the head any different on these as my car is an AMK? I have rang audi but the parts guy did`nt know!

    All have the same size valves,you mean larger ports.
    I believe the only a3 is the early agu 1.8t's.
