Lightbulb valve adjustment needs to be done any adjustments for performance?

So its about that time of the year and my car wont start in the morning and its running like crap so I have to do a valve adjustment but while I'm at it are there any adjustments besides the stock that would give me better performance such as the intake being open more? let me know! thanks-!

basically? no to tight and you lose compression when it's warm, to lose and it will rattle when cold. You sure you dont have a glow plug issue?
