Yes, S4 pistons would fit the block; they do need to be
matched to a 20V head. Think about the combustion chamber,
it is a different shape and volume. If you want pistons for
a 10V head there is a plethora of them out there. Look to
the VW parts bin.

The S4 (U.S. AAN version) is a 2.226 litre just like the
MC, JT etc.
