Cam specs / degreeing

Ok so I degreed in my cam on my current build. My specs are pretty close but i would like to know that the pro's think. last year we had a little fun as i crash coursed myself with help from members through the process. this time around it took me a little refreshing and more level headed studying to truly understand whats happening while degreeing a cam. I finally got it ( i think ). Anywho here is my question. My cam is a howards 512/512 lift 227/233 duration @ .050 on a 110 lsa 106 icl

Cam card specs are as follows .

intake opens @ 7.5
intake closes @ 39.5
ex. closes @ 2.5
ex. opens @ 50.5
intake center line is 106
duration is 227/233

Here is what i got.

straight up (dot to dot ) i got a centerline of 111 so i advance it to what would be the the 4 degrees advanced to get a centerline of 107. ( comp timing set ) freebie

intake opens @ 5
intake closes @ 40
ex. closes 3.5
ex. opens 49

centerline was 107

duration is 225 in/232 ex.

What do you guys think ? does this seem good for my 10 to 1 355 ?
