Default how to tell if i have a cam?

me and my buddy were talkin the other day and we're starting to think my car has a mild cam in it. i bought it used, so i'm not really sure. but the idle is a little rough, it's running around 40 degrees of spark advance. and it seems faster than other stock f-bodies. i ran a best of 8.66 @ 85 mph in the 1/8 with the mods in the sig. what do you guys think?

I ran a little faster than that stock... but what does your shift at or what can you run it up to? A cam would pull past 6000rpm
