    Got some bent valves. Going to be rebuilding the head.

    Can’t seem to find any Engnblder ss valves or evo valves. What is the next best choice?

    Not sure how many valves got bent yet, but should I just stick with stockers?

    Hp goals are 300-350 max.

    I'd say stock or stock replacements would be completely fine for that power level. If you plan to turn up the wick, better can't hurt, but not necessary for that power goal.

    Just stay with stock, there’s no reason to change them. You won’t gain any hp with them. Stainless valves are a little lighter letting you rev higher more safe and they don’t rust. Unless you go over sized or change your rpm limit they won’t do a thing and even if you go over sized they don’t help till higher hp numbers. You would also need to get new valve guides machined into your head. For what your looking for stay with stock it’ll also most likely be more reliable. If you need a set of valve let me know I have a few sets sitting around

    Unfortunately, engnbldr closed their shop because of health problems.

    Those power goals are relatively low and nothing a stock rebuild can't support but, if you're wanting SS I'd recommend GSC SS I/E valves. If you bent valves it's not a bad idea to get new valve guides either, especially if they've never been replaced.

    Thanks guys. I have decided to go with stock replacements. Just gotta find out which ones are bent. Value guides have been added to the list
