Hmm, I'd be interested to know exactly why the valves became damaged. I know you mentioned heat, but modern metallurgy has come a long way, and I think these engines have been tested in a more hostile environment that you or I could provide (full throttle testing at Nardo for instance).
There is likely an underlying reason why the valves are burnt or damaged (such as underfuelling causing excess combustion chamber temperatures). I'd be interested if you could provide the pics- post again if you get that sorted please.
