Here is why you don't want to use cheap valves.
The 2.19" head went through four cylinder walls and chambers on both cast iron heads. The poor 396 in my Chevelle died idling in the garage, after 15 years of service and several rebuilds. I had the heads done when I was a teenager and not much cash, they lasted quite a few miles and a couple sets of valve springs.
