2008 valve adjustment

Thanks for the DIY threads on valve adjustment. My wifes fit has never had the valves adjusted. 135,000 and figured it's time. All the exhaust valves were out of spec. Took approximately 1 1/2hrs. Car now purrrrrrr's like new. Thanks.

Were the clearances too loose or too tight?
