CAn a ritchey WCS BB replace the one from campy
My concern is the taper angle ? I heard campy uses an abnormal angle. If that is the case will it squek or damage the crank ?

Both Campy and Shimano bb's use a 2 degree taper, but the cross section of Campy's bb is smaller than Shimano. If the Ritchey bb is compatible with Shimano cranks (likely) then you won't be able to draw Campy cranks far enough onto it.
