so confused! 94 325i head cylinder

So im new to all this, but whatever. I bought a new cylinder head with cams, valves springs, etc. If I am replacing my old cylinder head with this new one, do i have to do the TDC and worry about keeping the timing right if im just replacing it with a whole different one? They said it should be a direct bolt on, but i dont know about that, and i dont wanna screw it up by jus throwin it in there and bolting it down.......please help!! thanx

Yes you have to do the "timing mark thing" While you are that far into the engine I would replace the timing belt and idler pulley. For my '89 325I the whole kit was under forty dollars at NAPA. It's cheap insurance, Jetsam

The head technically is a "direct bolt on" item. However, you do need to make sure the flywheel is in the TDC position. As well as the camshafts have to be properly lined up. Their is a special tool required to lock the cams in place.
