I'm correct in assuming that the intake/exhaust lash settings are the same as stock, right? the cams are only different in duration.

valve adjustment has to do with the expansion of the metal, do to heat. Even with a cam with more lift the adjustment is the same if the expansion of the cam is the same. Yes, the adjustment should be the same as stock. If you adjust is to loose them you will have noise and problems, to tight and once the metal expands enough the valve won't close.
