Moving a BB and cranks from one frame to another

I want to move my Centaur 08 BB and cranks from a Wilier Izoard to a Cervelo RS. Will the the BB threads be the same? If not what will I need to do? Will the Cervelo frame be ready to take the BB without any major alignment work that I understand is sometimes necessary?

I think I need a Torque wrench, a Campag 10mm hex tool and a tool for removing the cups like a Park BBT19. Will I need any other specialist tools? What tool removes the BB?

Any advice would be appreciated.

The Cervelo RS BB Shell is 68mm English Threaded. Check to see if the Wilier Izoard is the same. If they match I dont see a problem in what your trying to do. Of course I assume the Cervelo RS will be equipped with compatible Compag drivetrain.

I'm not sure about the Tools as I have no experience with Compag.
