You can put an i cam in an e engine but you will need i dual springs and have to have a machine shop drill more oil journals.

Considering that you have to remove the head to get the cam out anyway, having a few oil holes drilled isn't so bad.

dont shave it very much or else you will throw off the timing belt, you may need to get a adjustable cam gear to make up the messed up timing from decking the head...

joemadoo went through this problem with his other motor...

I used a modified porsche 924 timing idler pully to correct the timing, works perfect. You can't go over 0.035" or you risk valve damage.
