Is it possible to get the heads off a cadallac catera 3.0 and put them on a 2.5, i ask because i found a listing where the guy wont remove just the cams, but possibly the heads. if the heads dont fit right, il just remove the cams myself. will the heads actually give me any hp advantage? thanks

The 3.0 Catera is a 'sports' model right? If so it will come with the high output 3.0 with G cams, if it isn't a high output 3.0 then they won't be G cams and there will not be any significant power gains.

The heads will not go as the bigger valves will foul the cylinder bore of the 2.5; you can always sell these heads on to someone with a 3.0 that has had timing failure, or buy a 3.0 with timing failure and stick the good heads on that ;) .

The cams are marked at the timing sprocket end thus...



Inlet cams are marked with a suffix G - exhaust with Suffix A.

Raggy, will the later Vauxhall Vectra cams fit on the old 2.5, or am i stuck with the 9000/omega cams?
You mean from a late 2.6 or 3.2? as far as I'm aware they do swap.
