Valve purchase question

I'm looking for valves for my vortec heads that are +.100 but can't seem to find any without undercut stems and not cost a fortune. Can you guys point me in the right direction?

Thanks,
Nick

try Precisionengineparts.com. I use their stuff. Valves are made in Israel.

and I believe any shop that uses Engine Pro for a warehouse. Will have the valves (tho not sure on the no undercut). These are from Argentina.

Thanks for the info. PEP has the exhaust valve but the intake is undercut. Engine Pro does not have what I'm looking for.

I was looking to see if there is anything more budget friendly but it looks like I might not have a choice.

What do you guys think of these:

Manley 11886 8 SB Chevy 1 94 100 Severe Duty Intake Valves | eBay

I'm wondering why they are so cheap. He has both intake and exhaust.

The price at $109.95 for Manley 11886-8 exhaust valves on e-bay is half-price. The seller also has Manley 11887-8 intake valves at the same price for a total of $219.90 for 16 valves. I noticed the seller has 100% positive feedback and free shipping.

The same set of Manley Severe Duty valves would cost $440.84 at Summit. The seller on e-bay if offering those valve at half-price.

I purchased the valves from ebay. Although I had reservations about ebay purchases that sound too good to be true, they are exactly what the seller says they are.

Thanks to all for the help.
