As long as you keep the timing components that go with the cams so the timing curve remains correct that part should be fine.

The only other worry would be the valves hitting the top of the piston. The longer duration cam will keep the valve open longer as the piston comes up and the later engines have a taller crown on the piston and may cause valve/piston interference.

Some testing/measuring would need to be don in that area.
