but after install let them sit for at least 30 min before starting so they settle. Bentley says it and as do many on vortex.

I've had lifters in a Chrysler engine take several hours before the lifters bled down enough to let the valves actually close and get some compression. On these VW engines 30 minutes seems to be enough, but it takes longer for most guys to get the cam in, timing belt on and set properly and the valve cover re-installed along with other small parts.
