Gen 4 cam swap?

Will a Gen four cam fit in a Gen 2-3 head? I know there would be some P/V clearance issues but those can be resolved. Just not sure if the cam are the same except lift and duration?

WILL NOT WORK. much more to it than p/v issue. physical dimensions of cam and valve train components completely different. cannot compensate.

Well, nothing is impossible.....I did some aggressive mods, and it possible.....not recommended for the average tinkerer.
