im not worried bout the actual head or cams, just the gears. need to know if overall diameter and bolting it up is the same.

oh i have no idea on that, it should be a direct bolt on since they are the same heads except one if perpared for the turbo while the other is for ecomonic purpose

actually they are no were near the same head. the cams are diffent, intake ports, valves, cam timing, everything. The only thing that is for sure interchangable that i know of is the exhaust mani.

No point in using an adjustable cam gear on a 5s-fe so save your money for something else.

just gotta use the early 5s block 92-93 so the passages on the block and head line up. You'll have to machine the crank and rods to make everything work, standalone EMS would be the best bet for power and so on
