There should be a number on the end of the cam. Mine was on the distributor end. Mine was "179R", just to give you a hint of the number to look for.

You can purchase a cam timing kit from a performance parts store. I'm not sure if Summitracing.com ships overseas but they have them. Then you can just follow the instructions and find out exactly what cam you have. It will tell you lift, duration, and separation angle with a little adding and subtracting. Its a pain and it takes a while, but its one way of finding out exactly what cam you have.

I don't know about over there, but here cams are cheap. You could just figure out which one you want and get a new one.
