Hello all,

I am a new member and i hope this post is in the right place. Could anyone tell me please if a cylinder head off an A6 1.8T engine (code AEB) fit onto an Audi A6 1.8T engine (code APU),

Kindest regards,

Betty.

The heads are different and the apu is drive by wire throttle and the other isn't I'm afraid. You could ring a dealer to be sure. Welcome along!

Thank you all very much for your help and kind words. Cam belt failed and i thaught it would be a better option to change the head because i have been told if several valves are bent it would run into a lot of money and the head on offer was quite cheap. Just to mention I am pleased to say my A6 2.7T year 2000 at 273,000 miles[:O] is still going strong, has anyone got a higher milage one?

That's great miles! Mine is just wearing in at 160k. Was the belt overdue? I know what you mean about swaping heads. I trust you have a good mechanic rather than dealer prices. I'd check the scrap yards if I were you. Bet you were gutted when it blew!

So very sorry i did not spell it out correctly. The cam belt on the 1.8T has gone BUT my 2.7T Quattro at 273,000 miles is still going strong.[^o)]

wow - that many miles!

Just have it rebored and skimmed and it should be as good as new!

Around £200 to £300 depending on who does it.

2002 A6 owner here. Pics are in my posts in newbie area. Wow you guys sure do have high miles. Mine has just managed to reached a nice 63k. Apart from the odd electrical problem and the fuel return pipe breaking today all is fine. :) I do have some guage related questions to ask so im off to start another post and hopefully one you kind people would have come across simular symptoms.
