I finally did the check at 24,000 miles in 2009.

Three intakes had 2.75 shims, one had 2.72.
Three exhaust had 2.90, one exhaust had 2.88 shim.
I'd call that fussy adjustment at the factory, since retail shims are only available to the nearest .05mm.

The 2.72 intake and 2.88 exhaust were barely at minimum. Both needed 2 sizes down (2.65, 2.80)
to get to high end of clearance spec., the rest just one size down ([email protected], [email protected]).

I bought the sizes needed at a dealer for $6 each - no exchanges available here.

It's running great at 50,000 miles, but probably time to check again this winter.
