Just finished checking the valves. Previous owner must have kept up the motor. Clearances were spot on. Guess I had the opportunity to change the plugs while I was at it. .09 intake, .011 exhaust across the board. Motor has 68xxx miles. 2007.

Just did my valve adjustment on my 07 with 102K miles. ALL of the exhaust valves were tight. 0.005-0.007". Intake valves were still good at 0.010" across the board.

Finally did get the leak down done; 5%, 12%, 15%, 5%.
I'll probably get the head rebuilt next spring.

Redid my adjustments last night. Exhaust valves to 0.011" and intake to 0.009". The engine runs smoooothh.

I've been thinking about coming to you for this soon. Pulling up on 23k miles.
We'll be doin another Billman visit at my place early next Spring if you can wait that long. His shop might be closer to you than I am though.

My zip code is 18067, I'm 20 minutes from where the Evans Tuning Meet is / was.
im down for this! def

2006 here and i too had to adjust the valve twice so far with a motor with 80,XXX miles. it runs so much smoother after each adjustment. intake side is always perfect but the exhaust side always seems to run tighter with due time so obviously i had to adjust only the exhaust side. but always check all valves.

I've found that I need to adjust my valves sooner than 50k but my car see's more abuse per mile since it doesn't get used to commute in.

Thank you Billman250
