I am going over my engine and car getting it ready for the summer season.
I took the engine apart and it had 3 x .2 mm shims (.6mm total) Way too much for me as I run 20% nitro and the P6TH plug on a short track.
Question is: do I just take out one shim (for .4mm) or can i run it at .3 mm without damaging anything?

If you are running 20% I suggest you just take out 1 shim.

LOW ET you are correct.
Hi Sam, would you recomend using the stock shims with the evo2 running 16% nitro or removing 1 shim as per evo 3?

If you want to run 16% I would suggest you shim it at a total of .30mm.

Stock shimming of the 1st batch JLR Evo 2 is .30mm and the 2nd batch came with .40mm, so it is best to use a caliper and measure the overall thickness of the shims.
