Wilder cam means that the valves open earlier and close later hence the rougher idle as it needs higher revs to operate smoothly. No use putting a wilder cam just for the hell of it, all depends what power you want, either top end or bottom or midrange and it varies from cam to cam.
Errrrm you own a 6 by the sounds of it. First and foremost no matter what you do, you will not get a 6 to sound like an 8. Infact i can go as far as saying getting a good note out of a 6 cylinder is the harder than a V8.
Too loud and it sounds droany and farty and too quiet it doesn't give a note.
