Would these cranks:

Work on this TT groupset?

One set is Ultra Crankset while the other is Ultra-Torque Bottom Bracket - Super Record.

Yes it will work. The 'Ultra' in the Bora Ultra name denotes the use of ceramic 'CULT' bearings on these cranks, similar to Super Record. 'Ultra-Torque' is the name of the system Campagnolo use to connect the semi-axles of the bottom bracket to the respective crank arms. It is used widely throughout their range.

The frame I am buying comes with a BB386.

Any idea what adapter I would need?

TIA

Just search on Campagnolo BB386 Ultra Torque. There is no special Ultra Torque BB for the Bora TT crankset.

On your original post, I also agree it will work. (I would not recommend the Bullet TT crank which is power torque).

I know that it's more expensive, but the EPS group on a TT bike is awesome.

What is the bullet TT crank?
Do you mean Bora?

Campagnolo doesnt have button tt shifters so really I might as well just use this setup.
I like the old 10 speed record.

No button shifters, but you do have the absolutely barend shifters, which are super nice (and which I much prefer to the button shifters on Di2)

Plus the EPS TT brake levers do have buttons, if buttons are your thing.

the 86.5x46 one.

Don't buy the 86.5x41. That's the bb86 one.
