Should an XPAG engine tick louder than a B-series? Also, will hardened valve
seats and stellite valves reduce valve recession to a negligible level? It
seems to me that if you take valve recession out of the picture, then wear
would always move the valve lash in the "loose" direction. I guess what I'm
curious about is:

Is valve recession eliminated with the latest valve and seat materials?

If so, will wear always increase the valve lash?
