    It's always a good idea to do a valve lash when you pull the top end apart. The gsr cams have a different profile than the b16, so you might as well do it.

    i run my valve lash on the loose side in high boost cars to compensate for the valve expanding due to the extra heat. but you do lose a little lift and they are a litte noisy when cold but its a trade off
