Question just installed cams, have ?s

i just installed my fixed crane 550/217 cams and have a few questions. first, i did a compression test, and am now showing between 200-215 psi in all cylinders. is this allright? second, the car is not idleing well(very lopey, and i was told these were not lopey cams). should i reset the pcm. i took it for a test drive after breaking the cams in and noticed that each time i got on it it felt a little stronger, like the comp was adjusting for them. any ideas?

you really need to reset the comp.. take the battery cable off for a while.. this helps the comp. to learn everything faster then driving it around to break it in

All cylinders @ 200-215 is just fine.

I'd reset the computer and try again, it should run better.
