Unless it is pecking....... dont even think about it..
Cost,,, no number value, but to start the measure process, remove upper plenum, both cam cover, and obtain clearance values...
How do want to play the game?? you want to play the range of adjustment, or you want them all set evenly to 1 value for intake and 1 value for exhaust .....
If adjustments need to be made,,,, remove oil and lower oil pan, cut some of the engine mounts loose to tip the engine, dump the cooling system, remove drive belt/crank pulley/water pump, then go after the front cover. Now you can see the chains and tensioners... Hmmm, maybe replace chains upon re-assembly, maybe tensioners too, how about the guides ??
Mark everything real well, remove chains, then remove cams.... now remove the bucket, and micrometer inspect the thickness, then firgure the +/- amount into your known value, then replace with correct thickness bucket... they'll be special order too, so figure out what you need to have.. dont forget all the other gaskets, oil filter, coolant, RTV, chains, guides, tensioners..
I set my TOYOTA head up at 65,000 mile, new valve seals and valve adjust to 1 value at intake and exhaust... 336,600+ mile currently, still quiet.... needs valve seals though.
Cost, figure maybe $2200 as a wild guess to start...
