Small block chevy cam

I have a cam but didn't have a spec sheet. but the cam has a purple stripe in the near the first lobe and a blue and orange in the back before the timing gear. Can anyone help me identify this cam?

Numbers? Not sure the stripes mean anything other than some kind of inspection, but stamped numbers will tell

Cam specs

Just got my cam measured it's a .414/.424 lift. I am running this cam in a chevy 327 with camel hump heads and a stock intake. How good will this motor run?

I am not a cam guy by any means, but without knowing the duration or having any other numbers to go by, if the numbers that you posted are the valve lift, I would guess that what you have is a mild performance street cam. As I said, not enough info to say for sure.

Well my camel hump heads are 64cc so I should run about close to 10 to 1 compression. You think I should run a bigger duration cam?
