No, according to this, the euro motor would have the "A" cam.

Op, I had a B cam in my +t motor (b is similar to a), and it pulled pretty hard compared to the stock cam. You may lose some low end though.

My friend had a 740ti with a B230ET engine, with the waste gate actuator preload as tight as possible and a chip from Sweden.

My Nissan Laurel never had as much acceleration as when it was towed home on my friends 740 when the nissan's engine broke down
