Shimming the valve spring?

Hey all, I was thinking about getting my phantom more efficient and the general consensus is a light hammer, light main spring and strong valve spring. Has anyone tried shimming the stock valve spring with washers instead of buying a new one? It would both increase tension and decrease volume, which could raise efficiency as long as you don't starve the system. I can't think of any way that could hurt my phantom, but I might as well be on the safe side right?

What do you think?
