as title says, im wondering where is best to buy valves?
and curious as to what people have paid when buying new ones.
im just talking about standard replacement
unless there are aftermarket ones that provide some benefit over standards without being 11ty times more expensive?

also curious if i should go for oversize valves.
is it worth the extra coin?

Stainless valves (swirl polish, turn down shank) cost around the $500 for 12, in Australia, cheaper if you get them from the US depending on exchange rate).

Yeah because the 2JZ ones are shelf items. Anything that is not a stock replacement for the ford 6cyl will be a custom set.
