Yes yoiu certainly can use cams designed for a NA 3SGE in the 3SGTE.

Those however are not 3SGE cams they are from a narrow valve angle F series head I guess a 5SFE.

quote from the seller
"Paeco (the manufacture) does not say if they are for an NA or turbo car all they say is; is that they are for a toyota mr2 90 or up. I had the cams in my engine ( 92) and the car ran fine except it would not idle. the stock ecu could not run the cams because the duration was too long to produce vaccum. therefor ecu could inject the right amount of fuel because the ecu's fuel system runs of vaccum sensor."

What duration cams are these?

Well the ad says they're 288 degrees. 34/74 intake and 78/30 exhaust.
I got 288 which is on the Intake side, which seems rather High. But I can't tell what the exhaust side is?
thx again guys

They're both 288 degrees. That's what the timing info is about add the before and after numbers then add 180 and you get the advertised duration.

So 34+74+180=288
and 78+30+180=288

Do you have a 3SGTE?

If you do these cams will not work. They are for a F head, see how they have scissor gears to run the exhaust Cam and only one cam has a way to mount a normal cam gear on the end.
