    Bare engine is more or less exactly the same as you have mechanically...

    Depending on the engine code of the S3 engine there are a couple of subtle differences but they won't make much in the way of any difference to fitment

    All S3 engines are small port rather than large port so ideally you would need a phenolic transition gasket to step down from large port inlet to the small port head, later AMK/BAM engines have a VVT tensioner that you can't take advantage of but you won't need to swap it as it will just work in its default position..

    There is no advantage to swapping the engines realistically... bottom ends are mechanically the same...

    Whats the reason for the swap?

    Ah... ok... makes sense then :)

    Treat it as a bare engine... swap relevant parts over (sensors, coolant hard pipe etc) and job done... prob worth considering doing the rods if you plan for power too

    Its exactly the same engine dude you won't get any more or less power out of it than you would your AGU... if you bolt it straight in it will be the same as it is now power wise
