Instead of trying to regrind an existing cam, it will be easier, quicker and cheaper to find and buy another camshaft w/the specs you want.

By reducing the base circle when they grind it, it is possible to grind a new profile that would have more lift. Whether it can be done on your core will depend on several things : current base circle diameter, what the current cam core part # is for heat treat depth to be determined9can't grind it too thin ), what the current lobe sepreration is(also ties into hardness depth, cores have a small range of seperations that can be ground on each core blank), and maybe a couple other criteria that I'm not thinking of right now.

You will pretty much have to discuss this with a cam regrinder, and possibly send it in for them to inspect to find out what is possible on your core.
