The cylinder head has three options - 8, 16 and 20 valves. 20-valve head was produced with variable valve timing on the intake and in the version with the turbine. Hydraulic lifters are installed on engines of VW of this type and adjustment of valves is not required. Camshafts drive by the rubber belt. The belt replacement interval is about 40,000 miles. At belt breakage, 8 valve engines could bend valves. On 16V and 20V motors valves will bend, be sure.
