First Valve Adjustment - How Far Off?

I had an intake that was as loose as .25mm, and an exhaust that was as tight as .25mm.

Most were .05 or so off, some tight, some loose. Several were actually ok.

Anyone have valves that turned out to be more out of wack than my worst ones?

FWIW, I could not notice any difference when driving it after I finished getting them all set properly.

2009 VW TDI Jetta Sportwagon 172k miles (rear-ended harder than Elton John on 8/4/13. Total loss)

1991 Volvo 240 142k miles (T-boned by a stop sign runner. Total loss)

I've seen some that had no clearance at all.

None of mine were even close. Maybe half of them had no clearance. I'm not sure I noticed any difference performance after adjusting either.
