Default 1997 a8 tdc - help please

Guys - I'm hoping someone can really help me out here...I recently got my heads redone and I'm in the process of putting it back together. I have the cam locking tools and have them zeroed out. The problem is if I set the crankpulley to the TDC mark then one of the valves hits. Engine has not been started all has been done manually. So I know I need to align the Crankshaft and both Camshafts to TDC, does this engine work like any other engine where you set TDC using Cylinder #1 on the compression stroke? I've tried that and it doesn't line up to the crankpulley TDC mark. It's not 180 degrees off, I've beaten my head on this thing and could use some help here.

Thanks

Leo
