Default Piston to valve clearance - Vitara pistons

Hello. I have a d16y8 with vitara pistons and long rods. Currently, I run the stock cam for some time, makes good power but I have a BC turbo2 cam in the shop and I would like to test it. However, I have not checked the piston to valve clearance when I assembled the motor and I am too lazy to take the head out. Has anyone tried a cam in a d16y8 with vitara-long rod combo?

you dont have to take the head off per se to check for valve clearance.

get a piece of pipe solder, or really soft small rod and bend it at a 90 and put it in through the spark plug hole, rotate engine over and let the valve squish the solder. remove solder and measure how far it crushed.

that being said, i would probably just remove the head unless you really dont care if you bend the valves. You could also possibly use a bore hole inspection camera and physically look at how much clearance you have.

THis is probably what I am going to do. If it blows, time for a rebuild with stronger sleeves anyway
