im probably going to have custom valves made unless i can find the oem ones for substantially cheaper. my engine came from a gc8e4ed model which apparently has the engine with the most expensive replacement parts ever made...
The intake valves are the same as the EJ25D according to Marnix and that is what I am using in mine currently. The exhaust are supposed to be sodium filled at least in some versions, perhaps RA only. Again same size at EJ25D valves. I don't know where to get them cheaply.
