Can you not just clean yours? I have a full set of B16B valves that I was going to clean just to see how easy/difficult it'd be to do, but with so many other things going on I won't have time to do that any time soon. If you want to give it a bash without the risk of potentially damaging your own just cover the postage and they are yours!

A good old school way of cleaning up carbon encrusted valves is to just leave the valves to stand in some fuel additive stuff like redex that is designed to de coke.
I've never tried it but have been told it works

My [new] engine came from StrictlyBoost as a poorly very smokey engine (described to me as such). The bores are in great shape - which is a shame really as they're gonna be bored out. However the valve guides on the middle 2 pistons are loose and this means the exhaust valves on those two are seriously encrused with some ceramic-like compound, that even 3 days soak in oven cleaner hasn't fixed.

The inlet ones have come up fine.

Will go get a picture...

Holy crap!
You could rap some tape around the stem and clamp them in a drill and put the drill in the vice to spin them up and remove the crud with a sharp chisel
