Should do. Afterall. Rumour has it they are the same as the FD2 cams.

I would have fitted them only they are all 2nd hand and unless you knew exactly what the circumstances were regarding their removal ie cam swap and not a blown engine I wouldn't want to be fitting 2nd hand ones.
Seen few wrecked engines because of damaged cams fitted.

Make sure you get it mapped to them or you won't see the benefits.

i was just going to say get fd2 cams but if its the same...just be careful buying 2nd hand cams!! how much can you get it for?

also- you'll need a good remap to get the best gains for it..otherwise there isnt much point
