Cam

I have a 91 gt, bought it for 4000 flat. It has flowmaster dumps, Ported and polished intake and a mild cam... I was wondering if there is anyway to tell what type of cam is in it without taking the whole engine apart.. So then I can further my options on heads and more upgrades.

There's always a guessing game, your best bet is to , pull your valve covers , rocker arms, push rods and lifters out then pull the cam and see , that's what I would do, if you have some knowledge of the 302 motor

With thousands of grinds out there? lol. The only way to tell for sure is to take the cam out and look for a number or get the cam spec'd out by a shop. I personally would not worry about it at all unless you are looking to swap the stock cam back in which honestly might make the car perform better if the heads are still stock. Stock heads are best with the stock GT cam.

If you are doing the heads then just pull the cam out when you do the heads and see if its got a part number. If it does, great, if you can't tell just toss it and pay $100 for a used TFS1 cam in good shape on the Corral.
