Default Got grannys car and swapped a ls6 into it

I picked up a tick performance street heat 1 cam for my ls6 swapped 66 nova. At the time I was looking for a small boost over stock without killing the street manners. I don't know what it will sound like currently but I'm worried it wont have much of any lobe to it and would really like something that turns heads when I roll up to a light in this 4 door cream puff nova.

I'm not so much tied up on a dyno number as I am the sound as the car weighs in a 2800lb so I know its gonna move.
The car has
LS6 short block with 30k original miles
built 4l60e with 3000 stall
Stock rebuilt 243s
Mid length headers
fast 92 intake/tb/injectors
Tick Performance Street Heat Stage 1 V2 Camshaft for LS1 & LS6 Engines
225/228 | .615/.595 | LSA112+3
Mufflers are black widow Venom 250-series with X pipe

I don't know what its going to sound like and after looking high and low have been unable to find any videos of there stage 1 cam just 50000 stage 2 videos.
I'm trying to figure this out as the car is in a shop and I don't want to pay for removal of radiator and other parts of the motor twice if I can avoid it since i might already be paying for a cam swap twice. Also looking at sending the stock 243s to TSP or other vender for p/p. I'm not apposed to getting a larger stall if required. Maybe I'm going overboard and its going to sound just fine the way it is. Anyone who can chime in on this who has this cam or heard it would be a huge help. Hell even someone to tell me to leave it alone its going to be fine is welcome lol.

Leave it alone it's going to be fine lol.

Just judging by the specs, and that there are plenty of similar cams out there that I have personally heard and owned. It's going to sound real healthy and will be a riot on the street.

Beautiful car btw.

I love the "More Door" cars - station wagons or four door - sleepers, all. Very nice. And it still has the yellow on black license plate.

In CA as long as the car is older than 1975 its exempt.
