ballpark cost of head work

I'm wondering what I should be expecting as a reasonable price to get my heads refurbished. Not including the parts, just the machine work for new valves

Also, any recommendations as to places to have the work done. I'm in upstate NY and a local guy has done Porsche heads before (he does a lot of maserati and citroen head work for a guy who specializes in those). I'm not opposed to shiping them off somewhere that has a good reputation for quality work.

Make sure to account for shipping. If you can find someone local that does good work may end up saving some. To and From can eat up a hundred bucks real quick but UPS loves it!

For a 3-angle valve job where you re-use/grind the valves, you are going to be looking at about $575-675 from a good Porsche shop. Shipping, new valves, additional port/machine work not included in that #. For your location I would recommend Atlantic Enterprises.
