The seats were not damaged, and only 3 valves were replaced with OE parts. A simple disassembly, repair, tank job, and reassembly would have sufficed. Not too mention the amount of material they removed. They claimed .001 was cut away, but the numbers don't lie.

AES out by O'Hare. I wouldn't recommend them to anyone. I handed them 2 completely assembled heads. I received 2 boxes of loose parts rolling around inside. They didn't even wrap up the camshafts.

Meh... either way we have a solution.
