Default squish height

I have a odd question for the PT forum!
My son has a 96 Eagle Talon with a 2.0 nonturbo engine. That motor is very similar to the 2.4 of the 02 PT we did have.
Long story but, I am replacing 4 intake valves cause of a timing belt issue. The head appears to have been reworked at one time and I am also concerned that the head may have needed shimmed. Would any one here have a idea what the spec would be for clearence, or squish height?

There's two different 2.0 engines mitsu installed-
a 4g63 and 420a

420a is exactly the same as the Neon /PT 2.0, EXCEPT exhaust exits out front of head.

You won't need to shim the head unless you've done something RADICAL-
i.e, removed headgasket 'shim,' angle milled head AND decked block.

The way you tell if it's been milled lots is to 'cc' the combustion chamber.

The 420a 2.0 DOHC Neon chamber is 52cc stock

Thanks, UptownSport.
I tried the DSM forum with no luck.
