2001 OBW 2.5 manual
I have read through out posts and people online say .008 for intake and .010 for exhaust. But my hood says .010 for intake and .015 for exhaust. What is actually right and best?

From the 2001 Legacy/OB FSM. Right/wrong? I'm just the messenger. :) Perhaps it's a difference in hot/cold clearance?
EDIT: No,

CAUTION:
Adjustment of valve clearance should be performed
while engine is cold.

I called a dealer and they said .2 intake and .25 exhaust.which is .008" and .010: But why does it say different on my hood. Maybe there a tsb about it and they updated it?

No explanation for the decal, but here's the complete valve adjustment section from the 2001 FSM. Hope it helps.
