Cam lock advice: 3.2 inlet profiles on 3.0 intake and exh

So I'm having a set of 3.2 cams installed in my 3.0 GTV. These cams came from a 3.2, and the exhaust side will get the 3.2 inlet profile as well.

Which cam locks should be used to time them?

the exhaust cams are the same iirc... only the 3.2 had different inlet cams... i,m guessing 3.2 cam locks even though its a 3.0 engine.

Yes. But I want to regrind the EXHAUST side cams to GTA INLET spec as well. So in effect, 4 GTA inlet profile cams in one engine. Two people in SA have done it with very good results.

I know that all 24v Exhaust Cams are the same, I assumed that He ment to regrind them.
