If your car ran well when you dropped the engine I would leave the cam timing where it is. Why?
1. You need some specialized tools to do it correctly.
2. Cam timing may be optimized for your driving preferences already.
3. You will need at least two additional gaskets, two additional seals, and four crush washers.

However, if you are just curious or want to try something different, I would pull the covers and make an initial measurement. It will cost you $12 in parts to find out. If it is close to stock, I would leave it there. Stock is good. A little too much deviation either way and you quickly arrive at a place that you do not want to visit.
