Would anyone have an idea where I might find cam specs for a 1987, 350 engine that came in Oregon State Police fleet vehicles? This would be the Caprice 9C1 cop car engine. Any reason to think these engines had a different cam than a standard 350 V8 Caprice?

OK, 400 something reads and no reply, Hmmm.

Anyone know where I can find stock factory cam specs (lift, duration, L/C angle, etc) for Chevy 350's of 87 vintage? I'm sure they varied some between pickups, passenger cars, and the performance engines in Camaros and Vettes.

Sorry you had no replies, I'll add to the interest with my internet opinions

I was looking at boxy 9C1's some decade ago and found that the output was 190hp, when the going rate for a fullsize 350 was 180hp, so some slight difference in lift or duration is plausible, but it could just be a paper difference - like the LS5 in 1970 was something like 360hp in fullsize cars, but 390hp in Corvettes - with the exact same specs... same thing with th L36 427 390hp in Corvettes but only 385hp in fullsize cars.

So the 9C1 before the LT1 arrived in 1994 perhaps boosted figures a bit just to attract fleet buyers?
