    The MZ-3 is not even made by Marz I think but some other company and then rebranded, they are not such solid forks.

    The MZ-3 is made by Marzocchi. If you cant find it on the web site its because the MZ-3 is OEM only. Im guessing the fork you have is 120mm, so I would say dont do it. 200mm of travel is way too much stress. Even if you got the 170mm version of the 888, that would be too much travel for that frame. Personally, the most travel I would put on that bike is 150mm, and thats pushing it.
