    5.3...are bigger valves worth the effort?

    i'm building a 5.3 with z06 cam ,springs & headers,is it worth the time & money to put in bigger valves or better off to stay with the factory valves,would it be worth the expense to do this or not much to gain vs. expense?

    im not sure the cost of swapping valves, but im sure it would be an improvement. 5.3 has dished pistons, so maybe you could also mill a little off the heads and get a compression bump while youre at it.
