Went to adjust calve clearance and noticed #1 exhaust valve looks like it’s mushroomed

Yup and you know what to do.  Get out the wrenches.

Does anyone know if m10 exhaust valves are sodium filled? If so you can't just cut them off as sodium will explode when exposed to the moisture in the air.

I believe only the factory turbo’s came with sodium-filled valves.

Holy Mangelwurtzel- 

 

did the adjuster come loose? 

Lose a lash cap?

Soft/broken valve spring?

 

Time for some abrasive wheel cutting and ducking!

 

Looks like a Furd to me- never seen a 2002 do that.

I'm curious for info on this.

 

I'm going out on a limb from your post in the other thread, that you got a motor which was run-in on a dyno/test stand, and the valves were adjusted before shipping out. it was installed, ran 1000 miles, and you went to check your valve lash and found this? 

 

No one else fuddled with the drivertrain in-between?

On a side note, this settles the debate of 'do valves rotate when running'. Look at how evenly/concentric that stem is beaten in!
