umm yeah, i wouldnt reccomend you do this by yourself unless you are entirely confident in what you are doing. I mean anyone can stick a feeler guage under a cam and measure tolerance, but if it comes down to auctually replacing a shim, then you are in for alot of work. If you get a valve (out of the 16) that is out of tolerance, then you have to take your camchain tensioner out, find a way to hold your cam chain in so that it dosent fall into your case, and then take your cams out, and be able to put them back in without changing the position that they were in even a single degree. Oh adn btw, make sure you are in TDC, and that you have a new valve cover gasket. Im telling you I do valves all the time man, its a rough job.
