Race cam marking

Anyone having possibility to look at Gen4 race intake cam?
I need to know what is the identification marking on it (casted numbers/letters at sprocket end). Is there a paint dot too?
Seller sent me wrong item and I need to give him instruction to check for correct item.

I can help out, I'll try and remember to look when I get home later today.
And ouch... Wrong item and shipped to Germany!! That's an expensive screw up on sellers part.

Yes, but I need to send markings too. He may think -0.2mm (stock) is ok, when he does not know what he has.

No paint marks or anything that I noticed between the 2 cams.

never seen any stamp/mark/numbers/etching on any gen race cam to identify them as kit cams from the std. cams. exact same markings. last race cam i installed was purchased as a gen 3 race int. by customer for me to install in a gen 1. with identical lifts, turned out gen 1 race int. indicated by increased duration in degreeing process, gen 3 [email protected], gen 1 [email protected] duration. not gonna look at that gen 4 as patrick said and determine it to be race from stk. visually, only dial indicator/degree wheel can verify authentic. good luck carlos.

Thanks members for good info.
I was sure that I received a std exhaust cam, but like gazx10 said, visually there is no difference. So did measure it with dial indicator and indeed, race cam it is! Unfortunatley not intake first place.

That is nice....

unfortunetly, I cannot use race cams, my gasoline does not allow me to go more than a 0.5mm hg for more compression.
