Is there any way to measure the specs on a cam while it's installed in the motor? The 350 I have had the Lunati cam in it when I bought it. I'm interested in replacing the cam to a bit more aggressive profile, but don't know what I've got in the motor now.

Yes there is. But you will need to put a degree wheel on the crank and a dail indicator on the pushrod (rocker arm removed) or on the tip of the rocker arm at the valve (which is much harder). All you do is find TDC, then record the degrees at which each event (intake valve starts to open, fully closes etc.) happens and the valve lift.
Then you can post the numbers here. I have a current Lunati Catalog which I can help you decifer the numbers.
Or you could pull the timing chain cover and the cam gear and get the numbers off of the cam (Lunati lables their cams on the front end).
Let us know what you find.
