Your clearances seem funny to me... shims come in 0.05mm (and some have 0.005 increments but rare) so how did you go 0.08 to 0.15 on the intake..? Maybe you used standard feeler gauges and have rounding error in you conversion..?

"What they do have is an implacable, unrelenting presence and movement that bespeaks massive power lurking behind paint and chrome. They don't wail like a screeching ninja, the don't rumble like a harley. They just growl like a spactic, stressed out badger waiting to rip your face off and eat your soul." Trainzz~RIP~
