Default Isky 433 education

I need to be educated on an Isky 433 cam, does it require radiused lifters ? How streetable is it ? I found one and don't know whether to shelve it for the next hundred years or put it to work ,how suitable would it be in a blower engine? opinions , first hand experiences would be appreciated.
Thanks Fordestes

It is a flat tappet grind.
It was intended for all out racing similar to the 425.
It can be run on the street as long as you are familiar with the problems of a long duration high lift cam on the street.
A blower would not affect the poor street drivability but would sure fatten the hp curve.

Thanks Pete, I kinda had that impression it would be a door rattling sort for sure , I never ran one nor ever remember hearing it alone trying to drive a vehicle with this wild grind. not my first choice.
Thanks again. this one was ground by Moon racing equipment ,has the moon stamp on it.
I believe it has the steel core, looks to have been machined at the front distributor slot.
