no such tning as a .90 intake valve, but I would clay check with those heads, only takes 10 mins.

do one cyl, bolt a head down with an old headgasket, adjust the valve lash and turn the motor over and see where if any you need to notch.Do one cylinder only and use it as a reff for the others

Do not go DEEPER that the factory notch at all.

Hey 89....if your going through the trouble of doing a cam swap just wait to do the cam that your going to be using with final combo.....you dont want to be in the Xcam for "now" way to much work....only way I say go with the X is if your going to leave it like that for good....
