Those cams are designed specifically for the sound! As with any cam, you need to properly match it to your engine OR build the engine to match the cam. Just "tossing one in" won't guarantee a fast engine. It may sound cool but could still be a turd! LOL and if you have emissions to deal with, you will probably be out of luck on getting it to pass.

Read about it, hear it HERE!!!

WOW, all of the crappy and annoying idle with none of the pesky improved performance.

Sounds like just the thing to put in a poseur rod with fauxtina...

Yes, seems silly to me but not all people are going for power. The same thing can be said with the way some cars look. I have seen pro-street looking cars with stock goodwench engines for easy street driving. Or honda's with fart cans. Takes all kinds.

However, the cam sounds like it has lots of exhaust duration with very narrow lobe separation. That should make good power with low compression and stock heads. An early closing intake for low compression, a lot of overlap to help fill the cylinder, and a lot of exhaust duration for poor E/I flow ratio. Could work nicely on a stock 350 (8:1 cr with stock 882 heads or a Goodwench replacement 350).
