I'm thinking about swapping the DOHC heads for SOHC heads on the EJ25 ('98ish, non turbo) that I have in my Beetle.

Can this be done using the stock ECU ?
Obviously I'd need a new timing beltPosted Image, but would everything else work fine ? Would I need different Cam Position Sensor ?

The reason I want to do this is that they take up less space, and might allow me to close the engine lid

Thanks,
Rob.
