1mm is 40 thou. I have heard that you can go 80 thou or 2mm. Seems alot to me. May be Tickford6 can through some light on the matter or Joe from CMS. I would have thought that the tensioner would take up 1mm in slack.

Forget about running a decomp plate, more hassle than they are worth, Just get an ACL 1.3mm gasket.
