Default Changing from Vans to Airfoil gear

Anyone drill the standard Vans gear in place and then swap out for the Grove Airfoil gear at a later time? Is this a simple unbolt-bolt swap?

Looks like the production of the airfoil gear is a very long time and I need to proceed.

I doubt it will be much different - the main thing I noticed is that the grove gear is thicker - I believe that the holes are in the same place.

I'll bet you a nickel you won't change them out once you have installed the van's gear and are flying.
