    no they don't. Crower makes some ls grinds, webcams also, and I am sure you can get rocket motorsports to do some regrinds if you want them to. A lot of places can do regrinds, and although this isn't the best way to get a different profile, it is usually less expensive, and if you arent going to need too radical of a profile, it will work just fine.

    I just realized the reason why they (colt cams) had me send them my originals... they are regrinds... I dont like this, Im going to get Crowers now... 402's or upgrade to a set of 98-01 LS cams until I go turbo.... then run 402-t's...

    Did you honestly expect non-regrind cams for 265?

    Says monty python
    "You're fooling yourself"

    Expect to pay about 450-500 for brand new cams made from billet blanks, at least for non-vtec cams. You can probably get a 403 profile on a regrind and it will work just fine. You just don't want the profile to get too steep, or it will start wearing down the rockers prematurely, not to mention the acceleration of the valve opening and closing could cause the valve to float.
