Hi guys,

Not Lotus related but some of you guys may be able to help. I have a 2zz swapped car and installed MWR's stage 2 cams with the Elise Racing slipper pads. Now I understand the procedure of shimming the valves to gain the correct clearance but Toyota doesn't do the size shim that I need for some of the valves.

Does anyone know where I can get them custom made? I'm based in the UK
Thanks in advance

If you need smaller shims you can machine them if you have a nice belt sander, or proper machine tools. If you need bigger I have no help.

Yeah, unfortunately I'd need bigger. I need a 2.82mm and 2.88mm shim. The current clearance I have on 2 exhaust valves is 0.0019 and 0.020 with a 80 shim and 72 shim installed respectively
