If you post a video of it idling we may be able to help determine if you have a cam. You can pull your valve covers to see if the valvetrain has been upgraded. You would have to pull your computer out from behind the pass side kick panel to see if a chip is attached.

Oh an sometimes a vacuum leak will cause a lopey idle and bad gas mileage.

Just follow all the vacuum lines if you can't hear any. If you can't find any you more than likely have a cam.

Re: Can I tell what mods I have

I have a 2000 gt and I was getting that lobe or rocking turned out to eventually produced a check engine light as cylinder 3 miss fire I replaced the cop s and it went away does any car part stores buy you let you use the free obd 11 scanners if so then there is a data log function and you can check your real time lambse1 and lambse2 they should hover right around 1 if they go well below 1 say .765 or below then it is a rich burn meaning coil spark is weak
