    i don't think you need to change cam gear, and i believe you use the timing belt that belongs to the bottom end you are using

    On my a6/y8, the a6 belt was too big. I had to get the y8 belt. You have to change your pistons. If you look at the top of them,( assuming its the hf block) there are only 2 grooves for the valves. They wont work with a 16v head. :)
