No, the cams have different settings for FI and carb, same for a non computer engine and computer engine and non EGR and EGR engines. Your distributor advance curve is also tuned to your cam. There is a way to easily change the advance curve on it to match up with a hot cam. JeepHammer has posted the method many times.

Thanks, I'll do a search to see if I can find it.

The FI cams have essentially less overlap and slightly different lobe centers. (read: valve timing)

If the engine wasn't already torn down, you could get away with a carb cam. They just aren't as efficient as the set up could be.

I'm using Comp Cams 68-232-4 for fuel injection. Outside of a Hesco or lesser known grinder, it's pretty much the only F.I. option from a mass grinder.

If you don't have time to do it right, how will you ever find time to do it again?
