Nope. You guys act like an engine shrivels when it's cold out. Adding a simply 1/8th of a turn is more than enough to compensate for any "growth" that can occur no matter what the material, aluminum or iron. My solid roller lash adjustment has a difference of .005 between hot and cold. That's an iron block with aluminum heads.
