The "S" has a bit more power and will breathe a lot better at the higher RPMs because of the 16v setup.

On the flipside of that, there is also a heck of a lot more to break/go wrong on an "S" head and parts are a lot more expensive than their more common 8v brethren. The good news is that as long as you properly check the belts and tensioners/chains they're very robust.
