I don't know the specs of both, but if they both take pressed in 1-1/8" headsets then yes you can switch it over. You should also be able to use the same fork. You're not missing anything in your calculation but it's close so there's little room for error. You might possibly have an issue if the headset design requires a spacer below the stem, but a 2mm spacer should bail you out if it comes up.
