Theres a ton of threads on this you should search first but whateve...

measure the shims that are in there and since the clearance is tightening use a thinner/smaller shim.

so if exhaust spec should be 17-22 or whatever it is, and you measure .011 you would use a shim .008 smaller - lets say the shim in that bucket was 185, you'd want to use a 177 to get it into the middle of spec and widen the clearence. Same thing for intake.
