Machining top end price

What is a ball park price for all the machine work that needs to be done when doing a top end rebuild?
Just normal wear on a 1980SC. Nothing burnt, bent, broken.

Thanks.

I think I paid around $900+. But, I had to have a few valves replaced, flywheel and pistons balanced, rods shot peened, etc.

on the other end of the scale, if you do rings, and find a lot of valves are bad, could be upwards of $3K+

a 3.2 I am working on now had $1600 in head work alone.

Around $400 for machining including new guides, spring test and assembly at correct spring height - ready to go when you get them back.
Add another $5-600 for new valves and replacing a few exhaust studs.

Atlantic Enterprises 856 589-5577. They're in NJ. I've been sending Bob heads for years.

P.S. If you don't want the candy, tell Bob to send it to me.

Bob puts a bag of candy in with your heads when he sends them back. Usually Mary Jane's.

The CE appears to charge $774 for the same thing A.E. charges about $400 for. All Bob does are heads so it possible that he's done more 911 heads than the Porsche specialized machine shops.
