    Recently had my valve clearance checked and adjusted at my local Honda dealership. After having them done, my engine sounds a lot more tappity before they were done it sounded quieter. ( itís sounds like my old Ford Fiesta? ) I have heard other k20 engines sound like this. Anyone else had a similar experience. You would hope that taking it to Honda you would expect them to get it spot on? Performance wise, the engine feels great and pulls strong?

    Maybe some of your valves were tight before?

    I was thinking that Flashy, k20 engines are a bit tappy anyway aren’t they? Especially when you start getting over 100k
