Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now.

Yes it will run the exact same they are just different blade pitches but are the same for the amount of air they move and will be just as efficient.
