Merkur VAM on an 88 TC?

I was wondering if anyone knew if this would work? I found a rebuilt VAM for fairly cheap (new in box), but upon getting it the part number didnt match mine, and going by a page suggesting the larger VAM/computer swaps, saw this part number is from an XR4Ti from 1986. My old VAM was a victim of me being 17 and messing with the spring tension and not documenting my changes, so no chance to put it back to stock, and i wanted a fresh one. Fired up the TC after 5 years of just sitting and ooohhhhh, she sounded GOOD, once she warmed up and was able to idle on her own!

My reference says all Merks used the small VAM, while your 88TC uses a big VAM. The Merk VAM is not going to give correct A/F performance.
