I don't want to argue, my point is just that if your going to do it, why not takes 5 seconds to measure it and KNOW that it's shimmed to where it has the proper preload. Rather than try this size shim, then if it's not right try this size, etc...

I also agree that if the lifters are set up properly a high volume oil pump is not necessary. You shouldn't need to supply more oil than is supposed to be required. If you do then either the lifter is bad, not set appropriately, or the oil passage is blocked.
