Specialized Stem- Multi-Position Stem: installing

Hi- Installed a new Specialized Stem last night - shorter with a more of a rise. The specialized stem comes with an insert allowing you to modify the rise angle from +16, -8, +8, -16. When removing the old Stem there was a 4mm gap between the stem and the top of the steer tube. The new Specialized stem is slightly different. When put on it there is not a consistent gap all around.- it's angled. The lowest being approx 7mm and the shallow part about 4-5mm. I installed this anyways ensuring there was no play prior to tightening the stem bolts. There's no details from the Specialized site on installing this stem. All they give you is a doc which describes all of the possible angles. Everything seems solid. I went on a .5 mile afterwards and it seems goods. Anyone foresee issues?
