Hi there,
We are just commissioning a new batch of big valves for the T16 if anybody is interested?
We buy these in big batches of 75 inlet and 75 exhaust valves, so will have plenty :)

They are NOT Ford valves modified to fit, but are instead a properly designed valve with the correct dimensions and shapes to allow optimum flow in and out of the head.
No bodges here!

30.5mm Exhaust and 34.0mm inlet.
This is the most appropriate size for the T series :)
Plasma Nitrided for extra wear resistance and heat capabilities.
£435 inc vat per set of 16.

Options:
Guides - POA
Double valve springs and caps - £300

Can you elaborate a little more on the possible benefits, along with other items these may give?

A larger valve will allow more air into and out of the engine, allowing more power.
Not worth it at all if you are looking at sub 300hp figures.

That said, the valves are MUCH stronger than OE and flow so much better.

Damn you Grant... :x

Rough guess-timate... How much would a good shop charge to make these fit? Can PM me if you rather :)

You can make around 400 on standard valves with a ported head so if you are wanting to go 450+ then it would be a good idea

Tricky one.
If you were starting with a stock, unported head... I'd say you are looking at £800 for labour to port and sort the valves.
