E-O, I-C method is the ONLY way to do it, works for any cam, and any engine. Is the only way to get cam lobe for valve you are setting on dead center of cam base circle.
Only drawback for those in a hurry or just don't care to do it right is this method is for one valve at a time. No problem for those who want it right, though.
When done right, hydraulic cam engines may be set on the engine stand and valve covers bolted on for good, will not need further messy or other non-correct methods to adjust them.
Solid lifter engines also benefit from the E-O, I-C method, same reason.
