Seems fairly mild to me. I'm using the Schrick 272 Asymm on my 4000CSq
272 deg. on the intake and 268 deg on the exhaust side.  
The cam has 110 deg. lobe centers with an 11.2mm lift. 
Valve timing is 26 and 66 degrees for the intake 
and 24 and 64 degrees for the exhaust. 
Valve overlap is 50 degrees. 
This same profile is used for both 5 and 4 cylinder motors.

This cam idles quite smooth - even at altitude. Saw Ned Ritchies '84 4kq at
Steamboat. this car has the 276 Schrick and Idle does start getting rougher;
not as bad as I would have thought though.

The 272 assym is a fairly mild cam. Don't think you would get "lot" more
shaking esp. with a 6 cyl. Remember these cams were designed for CIS which
can't stand thumping overlap.  

In re-reading the review of the Schrick I wrote for the list (little over a
year ago) I found one area I need to correct. I reported that on cold
mornings it took a few moments to "shake the cobbs out" after starting. At
the time (it turns out) my temp sender was going bad and fooling the Control
pressure reg. into giving me a very rich condition. That fixed - all is well.
