    That isn't something that we can just tell you. In order to set them well you need to put the car on the dyno and see what works best. On a side note, be careful with the Skunk2 valves/retainers, they will need to be lashed very frequently.

    What do you mean by "lashed" often?

    You will have to adjust the clearances between rocker arm and retainer much more often than with stock retainers.

    lash is actually the clearance between the rocker and the cam :)

    You're right, but what I meant was that the Skunk2 retainers whift a lot causing a bigger gap in clearance.
