Comp Cams Stage 1 with stock gears?

Hey everyone, I'm currently in the middle of a cam swap on my wife's 99 GT. I have the stock cams out of the car now, does anyone know if I can use the stock cam gears, and if so, how do I get them off the stock cams and onto the Comp Cams? I'd like to try to use them if possible, it would save me $289 bucks! I'm installing stage 1 Comp Cams. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hmm I know they sell aftermarket ones , I think they just help with degree'ing the cams to specs
Or to how ever the dyno shows the best power

You are going to have to buy new ones. The newer mustangs were bolt on cam gears

Not all new ones are only the gts witg romeo heads are the ones where the gear is pressed on. If it were a windsor it would have been bolted on. Unfortunately op has romeo heads so he would have to buy stock gears or imo upgrade to adjustable gears

The Romeo headed engines had bolt on cam gears. The early 99-01Windsor heads were pressed on.

I also agree and take this from personal experience. I would highly recommend changing all chains, tensioners, guides, and gears. If you don't you will be tearing your motor down again and doing the work twice. I also would recommend changing the tensioners to the metal ones. Look on MMR website that had complete kits on sale and you can upgrade to metal tensioners for like another 80 bucks..
