Cam timing

I need an experts opinion . I installed the cams with 7 links between the dots on the camshafts with the crank locked at the correct position for bank 1 then rotated the crank 360 and locked the crank and installed the cams for bank 2 . Are these timing marks close enough ? Thank you all don't want any more problems .

I`m certainly not an expert here, but on a 5 chain engine there should be 6 links in between the intake and exhaust cam marks... how did you count 7?

Useful links, just in case:

Ok, I think you should be good then. Rotate the crankshaft a couple times and make sure the camshafts line up at TDC.
