Heater valve comparison

When I first installed the engine I used a two port heater valve between the engine and the Sierra heater matrix. It dawned on me one day that this was a potentially a big mistake as it means the coolant doesn't circulate through the BMW M52 cylinder head when the heater valve is closed. Whilst looking for a solution on ebay I came across a VW/Audi three port valve that was similar to the two port valve I used initially.
