Question 3.4L (5VZ) - valve adjustments required?

Has anyone with the 3.4L V6 ever needed to adjust the valves? My 1999 has 160k miles on it and I'm replacing the valve cover gaskets, and wondering if I need to plan for checking/adjusting the valves while I'm in there. It would be great to know if anyone else has ever found theirs to be out of spec.
