Try lapping the valves in, this will show if any are bent.

Personaly i would prefer to change the valves as at least then i have peace of mind that i know the head wasn't warped or damaged unlike a new one (Second hand) which could be and cause more problems.

The valves for your engine are around 8 each, they alter in price for inlet and exhaust but its a very small difference.

If you do the work yourself change the valve stem oil seals too (very easy job!)

Need anymore help feel free to ask me on msn.
