Is the BAM engine reliable?
The engine can be reliable if you keep it well maintained (but you do have to spend some money to do so) but it’s a long way from being one of Audi’s most reliable. Anything they made without a turbo would be more reliable! How do you gauge reliability? The engine itself is OK but loads of ancillaries are poor quality.
Are AGU Pistons forged?
They’re not “forged” as people expect – forging is just a manufacturing technique and doesn’t mean that it’s strong. The rods are weak on all of them. Pistons are fine. The AGU pistons have 20mm wrist pins while all the others have 19mm.
Does BAM engine have VVT?
Your right with the engine code for the 225, it is APX and this did not have the VVT, while 2001 build cars (To the best of my knowledge) were fitted with the BAM code engine that was fitted with the VVT.
What is a VAG engine?
VAG means Volkswagen Audi Group. basically encompasses engines used in VW, Audi & SEAT Cars. So yes it should fit your car.
Which Audi TT has the BAM engine?

|1.8 T quattro||1,781 cc (108.7 cu in)||AMU, APX, BAM, BEA|
|1.8 T quattro Sport||1,781 cc (108.7 cu in)||BFV|
|3.2 VR6 quattro||3,189 cc (194.6 cu in)||BHE|
Are 1.8 t Pistons forged?
Some 1.8T pistons are cast rather than forged, which results in a fairly weak piston. Some engine codes did have forged pistons but they are not designed for high power levels, and still not as robust as forged aftermarket pistons. All stock 1.8T pistons have a bore size of 81mm.
Are Bam 20vT engines the best?
Of recent, “BAM 20vT engines are the best as they are forged…” . Oh dear. The latter I will like to take time to delve into. It is best to come from Club GTI as we are known for debunking many myths. VW/Audi produced thousands of EA827 and EA113 20v turbo engines over the years between 1995 and 2005.
Do all BAM engines have the same wrist pins?
The later BAM engine are supposed to have 19mm wrist pins. Both engines have VVT, but this is apparently for emissions rather than a VTEC style torque/power shift. Originally we thought the VVT actuation was different (one mechanical the other hydraulic) but we now understand them to be the same.
What is the difference between APX and Bam engines?
APX vs BAM engine.. Oil running through my veins. Hi guys, ive had a search through google, and the forum, and i’ve pretty much rounded the difference down to three things… 1. APX 225 engine was made earlier, i.e. production started in 1998 whereas the BAM engine was only available in 2001
What is the difference between AMK and Bam?
AMK definitely has no SAI. There is a power difference between the AMK and the BAM out of the factory – AMK is 210 and BAM is 225. However there is next to no differences in internals at all, and both engines WILL have the same power output after a stage 1 map.
