Hi been reading this with interest.



I too have done a rebuild of the valve guides and following rebuild found a tapping after warm up.



Mine is a simple screw and nut adjuster, but found that the exhaust valve in question needed adjusting after 100 miles. It wastoo tight each time.



Following a lot of talking to engineers I opted to leave it alone and see if it got worst.



It didn't and seemed to change in volume when warming up then quiten when fully warm.



The theory i'm following is a guide to tight.



I too didn't lap the valves as time was tight. All work was done by a very good machine shop have no cause to suspect the reaming.



It's not yours so it is hard to say just leave it a while and see if it beds in it self.



There is no change in power or oil loss.

Just read the quotes above again and I would not be one to blame the cam or the work done.



Stage one is a very mild tuning mod and is done to improve overall performance and is certainly not a race mod. Just out of interest was it done to both cams? This need to happen to both to work effectively
