'87 with 32K miles..valve adjustment time??

OK the manual says that the valves should be adjusted at 30k miles. I have slipped past this milestone.

The valve train sounds perfect noises that would concern me.. I have put 8K miles ( two oil changes) on her over the last year and a half since I got her..

The car is stock..... always proper warm-up B4 getting on boost, and I generally dont push her past 6200rpm ( rod bolt issue).

I don't know if the PO ever had the valves adjusted.. then again he barely drove the car.

What are your thoughts on how far one should let this go...
