i'm not 100% on this, i'll warn you now.

But in my opinion the valves are stock size, and all you've done is uprated the springs and retainers and valves to cope with the performance cam, and offer smoother etc etc power delivery.

so, therefore as the valves are the same size as stock you dont need the valve grind. A valve grind will just adjust the angle at which the air flows in and out of the engine to create a smoother transition in air movement. its an expensive job and i dont think its a requirement for your set up.
