Should I advance or retard my cam?

I got a new double roller timing set which allows me to advance, and retard the cam. I don't know a thing about whats in the 350, but my old gears seemed pretty slack, chain was probably stretched, hopefully this double roller will help solve that. But I want to know if I will benefit any from advancing or retarding the cam? Or is it even a good idea since I don't know the duration of the cam? It seems to idle pretty smooth, although I don't have a tach, so I can't say at what rpm it idles smooth. Let me know what you think.
