Has anyone used any Falcon Parts

I was just wondering if anyone has used any parts from Falcon Parts out of Jacksonville FL. I saw some valves they have on ebay for stock heads 2.084 in. valve 8 for $63 ond 1.65 ex. valves 8 for $68 I don't know much on valves I don't want to get them and blow the enegine from popping a valve off.I didnt want to ask in any other place because I saw them on ebay .

Thanks

This a place for one I would not skimp, I know a guy here that skimped and had a valve head come off in the burn out box @5500 makes a nice loud noise and water draining out both headers... needless to say head replacement was neccessary...OUCH

but on the bright side he did save money by buying the cheaper valves, just not in the long run, after he had to replace eveything....the $70 bucks he saved cost $3000 in the end....not a very good trade off....
