'86 L98 Stock cam specs

Where can I find specs for the stock GM cam in my '86 L98? My shop manual gives the lift but no duration figures. I'm rebuilding the engine and want a mild cam upgrade without sacrificing low end but I have to know where I am now before shopping for a new stick. I could wait till the heads are off and degree the thing, but the figures must be somewhere.
