    stock is fine if you ask me.

    if you want to get serious, oversided valves require machine work, new guides, seals, and so forth...

    perhpas getting a 3-angle job on the stock ones would be your best bet....

    but do you REALLY want to spend 1000 bucks on an LS head, when you can have a vtec one for 650 and make more power?

    since your staying NA id suggest to keep the stock valves and do a 3angle valve job. The gains youd recieve from putting oversized valves on the b18b are minimal compaired to how much money your pouring into it. You already have a decent base with the portflow P+P. Id use the money elsewhere (example) upgrade the cam to the 404.

    Just my opinion
