Exclamation 2.2L cam gears and 2.5L cam gears

So here's the deal, my buddy has an '01 2.5rs and he ran it off the road blah blah blah.. I dont think he's tellin me everything but anyways, the timing jumped and the RH cam gear shattered. Supposedly a guy "scoped" it and said the valves were still good.. Not too sure how he can justify that. So I put a new timing kit on it, along with a cam gear from a '99 2.2L engine. Are the cam gears from the '99 2.2L motor the same as the one from the '01 2.5L motor? Both SOHC motors. I put it all together and the RH side of the motor has about 25psi compression. LH side of the motor has about 190psi. I was thinking either the motor is junk and just needs to be replaced or the cam gear is wrong. Can anyone help me out?

they are the same. its pretty hard to shatter a cam pulley without bending valves. he would have had to turn the engine off before he hit anything...

That's not the cam gear. That's bent valves.

thanks alot guys, thats what I was thinking but just wanted another opinion.. cuz now he wants to put a 2.2L in it instead of finding a 2.5L and spending the extra money. Any advice on that motor swap?
