I put A429 Ford Racing valves in the Last set of DOVES I did. Lem has them in stock and the are very fairly priced for the quality.

Watch the valve job, not all are equal and a good one will make you smile.... a crappy one will make you cry on the bench.

I had about 40 Hours grinding time on the last set. + Parts, Surface, Valve Job, Guides, Cut for Large Valves, Machine for Guide plates and seals.

If I remember right because I got rid of the receipts before my wife found them, but I think I got the valves, Manley Nextec springs, and titanium retainers around $400ish. Can't remember exactly,but somewhere around there
