Cobra Exhaust cams are identical to Mark VIII, only the intakes are different. They don't lope though.

Only way to know for sure is pulling one of the valve covers and looking at the part number stamped on the intake cam. On your car stock would start with F6LE, Cobras start with F6ZE

You may or may not have cams but you definitely don't have any punctuation marks.

I'll add that a lopey idle can be caused by a vacuum leak.

Wasn't there a set of longer duration exhaust cams?

I seem to remember reading about them as an ultimate combo with cobra intakes; I can't find shit searching, lol.

I may be conflating a 2v thing or something, I guess.

Not that I know of, although there have been people use the intake cams as exhaust cams.
