Well 50 bucks is 50 bucks, so why not? Just remember to take the LA rocker ratio of 1.52:1, divide your gross lift by 1.52, then multiply by 1.6 to get the gross lift for the cam when used in your Magnum. An LA cam with .450" lift will produce .473" at 1.6. Take that into consideration when replacing your valve springs and considering cam performance. Also you will note a hole drilled in the #2 and #4 LA cam journals. These are for the cylinder head oiling on an LA. Magnums oil via the pushrods. These oil holes are not a problem in a Magnum setting. Just install and fuggitaboudit.
