Any cam guru's or engine builders?

I am trying to degree a small voodoo hydraulic roller cam (60110) for my truck and the cam card specs are intake opens -0.5* BTDC @0.50 (so in effect it actually hapens after TDC correct?)

and intake closes 31.5* ATDC@ 0.50

I have double checked my actual TDC and when i check cam with degree wheel and dial indicator I was getting intake open@ -5* ATDC and close@ 36*BTDC

Using the Cloyes hex-adjust the only option is either 6* advance or 4* advance so I went 4* advance and now have intake opening @1* btdc.
Would 6* be better?

Can anyone tell me if this sounds right the -.5 is a strange figure to begin with. Thanks in advance. (no pun intended)
