Default 16V setting height

It is important to set the correct valve stem height for the 16V hydraulic lifters to work properly. The height is 49.4mm +/- 0.04 (=2 thou). This is measured from the top of a 30mm OD bar lying in the cam journals (which are 30mm ID) down to the top of the valve stem. I drilled 8mm dia holes in my bar so I could measure with the thin rod on a vernier micrometer from the top of the bar to the valve stem.
If you give this dimension to your cylinder head shop they can grind the valve stems to suit.
