I'm having a very hard time buy/getting shims for the GTIR motor. Does anyone have a reliable source? I've sent JoeGT some $$ and I'm having a hard time contacting him now. Greg @ Mossy said he would order them about 4 months ago, nadda, talked to a Glenroy in Barbados (spl), he can't get certian sizes. Has anyone had any success finding a good source for these? Helpppp! GTIRoids

Whats a shim? I'm gettin ready to install my 54c and dont want any surprises... So whats a SHIM?
Our motors come with a mechanical (solid) lifters instead of hydraulic like the other sr20's. Which means after some wear has happened you have to measure the clearance for the cams and lifters (rocker arms). To get them in spec you will need different size shims. It will all make sence when you see a pic. Bad thing is some of the sizes are difficult to come by. Good thing is you can rev the mess out of your motor because of this design. I know that I do (9k rpm) :biggthump

Thanks forbeing cool and replying to the question... What are some symptoms the engine will giveoff when this measurement and config of the CAMS and RETAINERS are needed?
Tap, tap ,tap, tap tap tap tap. Atleast that is my experience. Anyone else know of any symptoms of a worn vavetrain? Loss of power but that may be very hard to detect.
