    Will swapping out my oem valves for standard size flat bottom valves affect the piston to valve clearance? I want to install some supertech high comp valves in place of my stock ones. I just want to check with u guys instead of claying the motor.

    Current setup:

    jdm b16a
    p30 pistons
    1 layer oem gasket

    You will be fine. Flat bottom valves just fill in the concavity that oem valves have on their faces. Won't change valve clearance a bit.
