    no.... you won't lose compression with the cam, but the 10:1 compression of the b16 is far too low to make those cames worthwhile. the thinner gasket will net you +.1 or .2 ish, so 10.2:1

    ideally, you want 12.5:1 compression or more for those cams.

    you'll probably lose a ton of power until 5500 or so. and up top make a little more.

    i'd do some pistons while you got the head off.
