Default does this 5.9 sound cammed?

hey guys i just bought this 99 ram a couple of months ago.

i bought it from a shop, who got the truck from some lady who kept the truck after a divorce.

he gave me a list of obvious mods, like skyjacker lift kit, rim and tire setup, msd ignition, upgraded injectors, k&n air filter, powerdyne supercharger, 4.30 gears, flowmaster exhaust..

he also told me the transmission was rebuilt about 4000 miles ago, and the engine was also rebuilt.

it runs like its brand new, however there is no paperworking stating that all of this is true.

there is a crane cams sticker on the truck, and to me it kind of sounds like its cammed.

it only gets about 10-12 mpg.

thats all i know.

do you guys think it sounds like its cammed? is there any way to tell for sure with out tearing it down or spending money?

sounds like my 5.9L but i wouldn't know if mine was cammed by the previous owner(doubt it, he was a moron). I get the same MPG. My exhaust tone is slightly deeper and heavier lope.

okay yeah mine doesnt even sound close to that, but that sounds pretty bad ass.

im a sucker for a nice cam. i always wanted them in my 96 svt cobra but id have to pay 1200 alone for cams (dohc) plus springs, notched pistons, etc...

going to have to look into camming my ram this spring/summer.

Only gets 10-12 mpg with a lift? That's not bad at all.
