    A friend of mine is putting an a6 head on a d15b7. The old head is the 8 valve. Will this work, and does he need an a6 ecu and dist.? thanks

    Well, he doesnt care about his car. He snapped his camshaft, and i had a spare a6 head i sold him real cheap. But, i realised when i got to his house, that it was the 8 valve head. He needs his car, so i just need to know if it will work. Just triing to help him out. But for someone doing this for horsepower, :withstupid:

    Are you sure? Both the A6 and B7 heads have 16 valves.

    I'm 100% positive it is an 8 valve head. He said the motor had been replaced before he bought the car. I looked at the head and pistons, shure nuff, 2 valves per cylinder. Does he need an a6 dist. and e.c.u.? 16 Valve head on 8 valve pistons? Is that possible? <_< I dont want to fuck him over by selling him the wrong head.
