Default Upgraded valve options?

Where have you guys purchased your oversized valves from?
Belfab has supertech @ around $17 a piece, FM is $5 more expensive per piece. I've found an ebay seller that is $1 cheaper than belfab but I haven't factored shipping. Anyone find any cheaper?

Shoot, I forget where I got mine, they were pretty cheap, I remember that. 'Course, they turned out to be like 0.4mm over, not 1mm over, but whatever - still cheaper than OEM and the stems had a nice grind on them

sorry forthe slight thread drift. Will oversized valves turn your engine into an interference engine if the timing belt breaks

They shouldn't unless you deck the head and block a significant amount.
