Anyone have any experience running this Cam Dynamics small block cam? Or perhaps have any videos of it running?

Planning on using it in our 390 stroker build. Seems like a fairly nasty cam and was wondering what it would sound like or how it could perform. Will be running a manual transmission.

It would be nasty. Something like a .590 chrysler.
Forget about street manners, hang on after 5 grand
No experience with that particular cam - I haven't seen cams from Cam Dynamics for years.
As the others have mentioned with a lobe separation angle of 106 I believe it would most likely not be a street driveable camshaft.
You didn't mention what you want to do with the engine - racing engine yep use it.
Good thing it's going in a four speed car. Lots of gear? (I would think 3.91, minimum)
With an auto, it would need a 5000 converter
My guess?...... 1200 rpm idle, 6-8 degrees idle vacuum. Nice cam for a light bracket car. Not a great street car cam.
(Cam Dynamics seemed to like tight LSA. I have a CD small block roller, ground on a 104 lsa)
