Yea its still a 292.
I think in 1981 0r 82 Mexico started makeing them and the us stoped.
As far as the cam goes well the best thing to do is go to a local automotive shop and talk to them on just what your looking for and wanting to do..
On E-bay [292 chevy] there is a book you can get on hopping up the 250-292 .
It will tell you everything about hopping one up...
If you want 300 horses out of your 292 it will tell you how get it...
If you just want to hop it up a little call comp cams give them your your model number of the 292 and what gears your running in the car or truck and what your tranni is and they will build you one..
I found that when you just buy one off a shelf you half to work out all the bugs sorta speak ..
It`s best to have one made for just what your trying to do..
If you just want to pull with it go to an RV cam
Thats what I have in my buggy....I can eather pull you out or pull your bumper off...
This cam is a bump up from a stock cam and is the
best to keeping your tourq at a low rpm. 500 to 1500..
Go to [ 292 chevi inline 6 ] on e-bay and you will see the spacers and the book your looking for..
