According to James @ Piper, the lifters shipped out on Friday. Hopefully they will arrive this week. Photos will be posted as soon as they arrive.

You use shims. Royal PITA to setup from what I've heard, but if you use titanium shims, once they're done, they're done.

European Motorworks.

And it wasn't a salesman that told me that about the shims, it was someone who's running them in his car

Gunna have to agree with paul on that, even if the shim's are titanium the valve stems will still wear. not to mention the nipple on the bottom of the lifter will wear in also. Shims will definitely need to be adjusted later if you do any sort of real mileage on it. I would check them at the same interval's your supposed to stock.

Yeah, realize this is my "track" car, so I doubt that I'll be putting any more than a couple thousand miles a year on it...
