The drivability will compare with a hyd flat cam with duration in the 230's and as we all know- that's pretty typical for a mild "hot street" 454.

I'm not saying it's an RV cam but it's not as rowdy as you might think. It's about 20-30 degrees short of a full solid roller race cam.
yeah i didnt think that duration was very wild for the street, the lift maybe
