Default v-spec HSN ?

Can anyone check out their v-spec and give me a general idea of your tuned HSN setting? I have it tuned to where I get good performance and nice temps in the 220 range max but the HSN is turned in way more than any other engine I have. My picco's are maybe turned in 1-2mm from being even with the surrounding sheath around the screw while on the v -spec it is closer to 8-10mm in. Like i said it runs great and probably has a liitle more in it then Im getting but it just seems odd.

Follow what Joe posted. Don't even compare it to other engines. OS engines are not the same as many others where the HSN is usually close to flush with the housing. It is just a difference in design. If you ran the HSN near flush on an OS engines, I doubt it would even start because it would be so rich.
