But, I'm not bumping off the rev limiter either, and keep a super clear airbox, so that may have something to do with why my valves never move. I wouldn't worry too much about the valves on the LC8. Dont lose any sleep over it.
Heya Vin

I don't have any torque wrenches etc, after the rest of the shit we had wit the PO input I will still do it as my last peace of mind, will talk with the shop to see if I can be involved and see what they say as I want to install the flexjets at the same time as well as check other stuff while her heart is open.

I have a feeler gauge and most other stuff but no shims or torque wrench etc
