I just did mine a couple of weeks ago. At 98K miles, what I found was about half of the intake valves slight loose (at the edge of the spec.) and all of the exhaust valves tight (out of spec.).
After adjustment I noticed a definite impovement in responsiveness at part throttle, especially at the lower rpms.
As far as the noise goes, it didn't help one bit. I guess it really is piston slap.
