almost.  the S4/S6 engine uses a chain between the two cams instead of the
gear driven arrangement in the sport-q.  also, the new 20v engine uses
hydraulic lifters instead of mechanical lifters.  don't know about the
sport-q engine, but the S4/S6 engine is a relatively high (9.3:1)
compression motor.
