Default Looking for OEM lash caps

Hey everyone, I am re-shimming my 2001's head after being rebuilt, and I need some used lifter shims. I have almost all of the exhaust shims set to spec, but for some reason my intake shims require much larger shims than the exhaust side. Perhaps the new intake valves I got were smaller than normal, but I'm getting measurements of me needing 3.8-3.9mm thick shims (.15" - ".155") to be in spec. Do factory shims even come that thick? I kind of doubt it, as even aftermarket shims seem to only be 3.5mm max.

Perhaps I made an improper measurement, but does anyone know where I could find shims this thick, or does anyone have any about that size?
