first of all thanks 98LS1FlawleSS that link was a good try but I dont find the number they say to look for

I have another cam this one has numbers stamped in the distributor end they are

 7395
eng 10
166 0832

any clues as to the id and maybe even specs?   I am going to install it in a 5.7 Vortec if it is half way decent and better than the stock vortec cam. I will not be using the fuel injection or computer as it is going to be a carb street/strip s10 probably going to couple this engine with a turbo350 trans with a 2500 to 3200 estimated stall converter I did get the roller lifters and dogbones and pushrods with this cam. Obviously I just dont want to waste my time putting it in if it isnt going to be an improvement over stock.
