Only 4 valves were replaced. I do realize those 4 could be different but without cutting teh seats the chances are good you would only need a couple and the rest you could swap around to get into spec.

2nd. when the heads were dropped off they were asked to simply repair, clean, and have them ready to bolt back on when they were ready.

I don't have the invoice in front of me, they didn't even charge to clean up/repair the combustion chamber but the "competition valve job"(whatever that means) was $250. Then there were charges for disassembly, reassembly, etc. I can't remember everything that was on there...I believe the final bill was about $650 or so minus 50-60 for my flywheel.
