Default Whiteblock VVT delete

i have an exhaust side VVT head for the 245 build. Not going to use the vvt and have the block off plate but started thinking, any real reason I can't just use the exhaust side cam from the NA head (which would be vvt intake, not exhaust)? I'm not worried about cam specs at this point, just simplifying the setup. Upside would be uses a normal cam gear and alignment.

As was recommended to me by Johann "the man" I sourced each of the almost 1 year only non VVT cams for the RN head. One was from an 01, and I cannot recall the other right now, perhaps 03 or 04? IIRC the latter was a turbo donor, the former NA.

Weblore says exhaust VVT was done for emissions reasons and obviously the intake for wide torque curve reasons. I sourced the cam pulleys from each of the donors. I expect to have to fab blocking plates for each so I can run my 07 VVT head and cover as is. Somewhere in my Whiteblock folder I have the OE part #s.

Did you do anything about the buckets, shims, and springs?

Ok so in theory I could use cams from Enem or KM and have them both as non VVT (but for the RN head). Just would need to find the exhaust non VVT cam gear.

Machine shop would be setting the clearances anyways, seems like a good time to do it.
