you could pull the rocker cover off and measure valve lift wit a dial indicator.

Or pull the cam out. Aftermarket cams are usually stamped with a profile number. If there are extra shims in the rocker arms you know its reground aftermarket (but not which one).

Could also put it on a dyno and see how many rwkw its pulling. that will give an indication of the cam size.

if you put ef rocker gear on it and didn't put extra shims in and it working properly, that rules out it being a regrind
