installing t5 cams in t7

Ive been doing some research on the t5 cams and have just picked up a set from nickturbo900. Im about ready to install them if ups ever drops them off .. my question is, when installing I read that you can zip tie the cams to the cam gears but how do you know that your mark at the crank gear does not change?

Because they're zip tied together.

zip tie the chain to the cam gears, there is a key in the gear, so when you put them back on the cams, the key will still line up correctly where the chain needs to be.

is you start with cylinder 1 at TDC, and you dont spin the motor in the process of install (you shouldnt have to anyway), then it will be times just where you left it.
