yeah, i seem to think that i saw this on here as well. can't remember where, though. maybe in one of the links on hakkenTT's thread??

i also did some research on the m50/s50 and the head is the same part number, so i would assume that the cams would have the same journal specs and fit, just stick out farther on the exaust side where the vc & timing cover won't match up.

if the timing chain will line up, just grind down the rest of the camshaft nub to fit.

seems to make sense to me...
