I'm truly lost. I'm looking at the FHI factory service manual and it clearly says that valve lash for the 2.5L DOHC motor should be:

Intake: 0.20 0.02 mm (0.0079 0.0008 in)
Exhaust 0.25 0.02 mm (0.0098 0.0008 in)

I don't know what you mean by 10/15 or 8/10. When I called Jon and specifically asked what I should set valve lash at, he told me factory spec. I verified that he meant .20 and .25 mm for intake & exhaust respectively and he said that was correct.

EDIT: I checked the MY2000 FSM (SOHC 2.5L) as well, and the lash specs are the same as they are for DOHC - .20 and .25 mm.
