    Without pulling it and having it measured...not much chance to get the specs.

    Unless you can get ahold of the shop owner.

    Does it have much lope?

    Drive pretty decent? Much surge?
    Maybe a cam card in the glove box...although that would be pure luck.

    Hmmm...doesn't sound too aggressive.

    I assume it drives pretty good?

    That is tune related.

    If I had to guess (which means more than likely I am WAY off), I would say something along the lines of a TR224 or 228R on a 114.

    TR224 is a Thunder Racing cam.
    224/224 .563/.563 114 LSA

    228R is a Texas Speed cam.
    228/228 .588/.588"with your choice of LSA

    Doesn't sound like a very aggressive cam to me. Probably looking at a 224 at most with 114 LSA. Possibly a hotcam?

    I dunno if they'll give you private info, such as previous owners, but it's worth a shot...? Go down to your local DMV or call them and see what they say.

    Pull the vavle covers off and look at the springs. If they're LS6 springs that would indicate a Hotcam. Single coil would indicate a mid-sized cam, duals would indicate a bigger cam.

    Valve cover gaskets are reusable. LS6 springs are a certain color, yellow I believe. 918 springs will have a blue stripe. Dual springs are just that, two springs on each valve. Check all the vendors for possible pics of different springs or just take a pic of yours and post em up.
