2 1/16 valves ?

I'm really bad at this and embarrassed to ask but I measured my BBC valves and came up with 2 1/16.... Is this 2.06 or 2.19??? Thanks

Those would be the 2.06 valves. 2-1/6" converted to decimal is 2.0625

Be advised that you just can't put bigger valves in.

2.19-2.25-2.30" are the popular oversizes. The valve pocket and seat need to be cut open for these valves. It is best done by a shop with a Serdi type profile cutter and various bowl cutters.

Same goes for the exhaust. A 1.88" exhaust valve with a well done profile cut will greatly improve flow=horsepower.
