Question v4 sti ej20k valves question

i have a set of v4 sti heads that are being rebuilt and i was told i need 4 intake and 4 exhaust valves. i got a price from a dealer in japan of $550 for the valves, not including tax or shipping. i cant afford to drop $1100 on new valves, so i need an alternative.
my engine came from a gc8e4ed model, engine code is ej20kdw7pr.

i have been told that ej25d valves will work and ive been told that they wont, something about shim over bucket vs shim under bucket.
i have a complete ej25 dohc heads out of a 98 rs that i can pull valves from, or i can have new custom valves made for $$$.

can somebody clear this matter up so i can get on with putting my engine back together and finally get my swap done?
