Which head? Gen1 or Gen3

I have a gen1 and looking to have some head work done and possibly a 2mm or 3mm pistons installed. I have both a gen1 and gen3 head laying around. Which head should I use?

The gen1 has larger valves which are also steel & the shim buckets are the official kit part for gen3 so really enough said if your getting it ported & machined anyway id go with the Gen! I got a gen3 head on my gen3 that Carpenter racing ported for me they also machined the valve seats to take gen1 valves (enough said).
