Default Oil Pressure Relief Valve Shim

Does anybody have a how-to on shimming the oil pressure relief valve?

Shimming it to open at a higher pressure? These trucks make ridiculous oil pressure on cold startup, I would think if anything you'd want to bore it out to flow more. I know Idaho Rob's truck Max'd Out has an external oil pressure relief because the stock one didn't flow enough.

I haven't heard of anyone doing what you are asking, but I would imagine it is pretty straightforward, just hard to know how much to shim to hit your target pressure.
