Titanium valves

Just wondering, going to run NOS eventually for the strip(75-100hp shot) and i was wondering whether or not titanium valves are really worth the effort.

I have a set of gt40p's i am about to get ported so i'm interested as to whether its worth it for such a small shot.

Thanks
Simon

definatly not worth it, steel ones would be more than suficient..
and for the price of them, definatly not worth putting them in gt40p's

The valves would be worth more than the heads!
