You do not have to take a shim out. You may be able to take a shim out to try and find that little extra bit of horsepower or leave it in to be safe and get better mileage. If you do decide to pull a shim, run one good hard tank with a new plug and check it after the run. If it shows any signs of distortion put the shim back in.
