ON most 20 year old engines 2 OR 3 degrees of duration, OR .02 to .05 mm of lift isnt going to have much effect on the cars running ability. IF you are installing a MATCHED set of cams on this engine then the car will run fine.
ON the rear of these cams is a stamped in number that can define the cam timing (lift & duration) that the engine was designed to run.
