You want to advance the cam to get the exhaust valves to close sooner. If you want to know how much difference it is going to make, put a dial indicator on the valve end of a rocker, and turn the engine 12 degrees ATDC ( this would be 6 degrees on the cam ) and see how much that brings the rocker up
