Advanced cam and idle quality

I have a buddy who built a stroker motor, when he did this he advanced the cam based on the builders suggestion due to altitude. When a cam is advanced will the effect idle quality?

Re: Advanced cam and idle quality

Mine did idle smoother. Takes a lot of the roughness out of the idle, more streetable.
I always degree my cams and usually end up with some correction. 4 -6 usually produces what I need.
