I thought you had said "But" instead of "Bet", jcctx... 133bhp's exhaust valves were probably misadjusted at the factory, with such a small clearance on the exhaust side, which is a good reason to check it before long after break-in. Valve clearances still change over accumulated mileage on modern engines. Change rate, and whether it increases or reduces, varies between different engines, as reflected by recommended inspection intervals... Some use hydraulic lifters which don't require adjustments.
