68'nova, I got a similar cam to you, prolly bit bigger, in a 350
Some of my mates got similar and even bigger cams in their sbc's and they got fumey rich idles, fouling plugs, rough idles etc etc. Real PITA to drive on the street.
When I built my latest engine, I followed F-BIRD'ss tuning recommendations (locked out timing, yada yada) to the 'tee' because he sounded like he knew what he was talking about, and he does... Mine idles smoooth, clean like a taxi cab, rock solid @900 rpm, even down to 700rpm with a bit of shake , super responsive , goes like stink, yet my mother could drive it to go grocery shopping. Well, not really, cause she would poo her pants, but you know what I mean. I'd stick with the cam you got, mine has REAL good street manners the way it's 'set-up'.

Hope this helps, FWIW
