    ah ok tnx!
    they said to adjust it in the minimum spec valve clearance which is
    intake: 0.18mm Exhaust: 0.23?

    Intake: 0.18 - 0.22 mm (0.007 - 0.009 in)​
    Exhaust: 0.23 - 0.27 mm
    (0.009 - 0.01 1 in)

    yep. funny thing is when my engine was first built it had little or no "tick" but after about 20,000 miles of 425hp it started the tick. all about the same time as my turbo taking a shit. needless to say i was concerned....lmao. but all seems to be well.
