I will agree with Jeff .003 would be better than .0025. .0025 is more of a street clearence. I would couple your clearence with Pennzoil 25W50 racing engine oil. You will also want to run 70-80 PSI oil pressure @ WOT. Like I said if I told you guys where I run my clearences you won't believe me anyways.
