Hmmm.. guess noone uses Crane Cams

Ok, anyone know if there is anyway that I can tell from the outside , which cams I have?.
please excuse if this is a daft question.

Also I can tell a huge change in engine tone at 4K+ revs, which I was sure was detonation.
A friend told me that a rough Porsche engine that sounded like a can of dried peas in a can at idle was that way due to race cams.

Do race cams make the engine sound rattly at idle or is it possible that the cams I have are making rattle noises at higher revs?

Again sorry if this question is daft, I am just fishing for hopeful easy answers which are not going to cost $$$$$$ in rebuilds
