How hard is it to adjust the valves on the m30 head? My heads r tickin very loud/bad. and i dont want to drive it anywhere since the engine suppose to be super cold when doin the adjustments.

And how much litres of oil does the thing takes? and does anyone have thier manual, if so wat grade of oil should i run in the summer?

Adjusting the valves on the M30 is very easy. All the info, including valve adjustment and oil capacities and stuff is here (if you don't want a manual):

Just whatever you do, don't do that last "trick" on the valve adjustment page, of turning the crank by rotating the nut of the fan. You will deeply regret that when you have to remove it for some reason. Just get a helper and have him click the key to the start position, a short burst at a time, as you watch for a lobe to line up (yank the main coil lead first of course :P).

Or stick the car in 5th and push it back and fourth to get to the right spot.
